You will be successful in this role if you have strong software or SaaS technical writing experience, are a fast and motivated learner, and are an effective writer and communicator. Also, you are the ideal candidate if you love being part of a fast growing startup team and culture, and get excited about the idea of doing lots of troubleshooting, discovery-by-doing, and getting your hands dirty with new innovative or work-in-progress features.

At data.world, you will:

  • collaborate with internal teams to obtain an in-depth understanding of the product and the documentation requirements.
  • work directly with the product, becoming an expert on both established features and early/in-progress development.
  • produce high-quality documentation that meets applicable standards and is appropriate for its intended audience.
  • create tutorials to help users set up and configure the platform.
  • contribute to videos or other media as part of a modern and holistic documentation content strategy.
  • identify product best practices and assist end users in adopting them through our content.

We’d love to see:

  • at least 3 years of experience in technical writing of software documentation.
  • experience creating documentation for a technical business audience such as enterprise developers and IT administrators.
  • experience creating documentation for SaaS and data products.
  • experience working with documentation publishing tools and lifecycle management.
  • an ability to effectively organize and structure documentation.
  • an ability to deliver high quality documentation paying attention to detail.
  • an ability to quickly grasp complex technical concepts and make them easily understandable in text and pictures.
  • basic familiarity with the software development lifecycle (SDLC) and software product development.
  • excellent written skills in English.
  • an appetite to try new things. You’re curious and excited to improve your process, and always looking to learn. You ask questions and don't shy away from challenges.
