Technical Writer III - 11076323

job summary:
  • We are looking for a developer-writer experienced in creating SDKs and code samples for a documentation project with one of our large clients in Redmond, WA.
  • In this role, you'll create code documentation for internal use by multiple functions to help facilitate AR/VR product development.
  • If you're the right fit for the role, you're an experienced developer-writer with particularly notable skill in communicating well across disciplines.
  • You can sit with engineering one day and R&D the next, asking good questions, listening deeply, and pulling out/synthesizing the salient information for your documentation. Your writing is clear, approachable, and unassuming, and your code samples are clean and useful.
  • You're not thrown by the ambiguity inherent in developing new technology, you're resourceful, and you're able to ramp up quickly. Ideally, you have experience with virtual/augmented reality, and you may also have game development experience.
