Technical Author, Remote/Trips to South Glamorgan (1374)

£Highly Competitive + benefits

Job Details

Are you looking for the next challenge in your career? Would you enjoy revamping a range of software documentation including user guides, online help, API definitions and installation/configuration guides? Do you have experience of implementing and managing single-source documentation using tools such as MadCap Flare or similar? Are you comfortable discussing code with developers? If you’ve answered yes to these questions then this role could be the one for you!

Working with our global healthcare software client, you’ll be the sole technical author and be able to put your own stamp on the documentation. You’ll work closely with the developers to gather information on the products and you’ll also get involved in some product testing.

What's needed?

  • At least three years’ technical authoring experience in a software development environment. If this has been in healthcare IT systems that would be fantastic but this is in no way essential.
  • Experience with documentation tools such as MadCap Flare (or similar single source tool), Postman, and Sparx EA.
  • Experience of using markdown language and of managing content as code including versioning control principles.
  • The ability to manage multiple priorities simultaneously and to work with minimal supervision in a fluid and dynamic environment with shifting deadlines and priorities
  • The ability to work with multiple expert groups including developers, technical architects, product managers, and operations engineers.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, with the ability to explain technical information in simple, clear and concise terms.

This role can be based onsite or remotely (with expensed trips to the office every two weeks). On offer is a competitive salary and benefits package.
