Job Details

If you’re a backend developer with experience of writing technical documentation and want a role that offers an exciting blend of both skills, you’ve come to the right place!

Our ambitious global client is looking for someone like you to join their team. Your main priority will be creating technical documentation such as user guides and code examples, using your background in backend development to understand the code and engineers’ scribbles. You’ll also collaborate with colleagues including product managers, engineers and developer advocates to build an understanding of the initiatives and ideas that the company is pursuing.

What’s needed?

  • A solid background in backend software development - no specific code language is needed, but you do have to be quick at picking up any that are new to you.
  • Experience of writing technical documentation to support software products - this can be as a technical author or as part of a previous role.
  • A good understanding and experience of working with GitHub.
  • Ideally, some hands-on experience of building applications or scripts involving a database.
  • Curiosity and enthusiasm for new technologies, and not afraid to share ideas.

This is a fully remote role and our client welcomes applications from suitable candidates anywhere in the world, but you will be expected to visit their HQ in Berlin from time to time. Whilst the hours are flexible, you will need to be available for regular team meetings during European working hours.
