Hello! Are you ready to Work from Home and transform your career?

We're looking for a Technical Writer to join the engineering team at Modus. Want to help our client’s build awesome solutions to accomplish their goals and vision? Are you interested in working from home with some of the best talent on the planet? Then keep reading.

About You

You love helping and supporting teams to build great software. You have a primary focus on working on preparing the documentation about the project/solution for both internal and external stakeholders based on priorities.

You have 4+ years of experience as a Technical Writer or in a similar role. You have worked with teams before on large and demonstrable projects. You have great experience in planning, shaping, developing, and publishing content for multidisciplinary teams. You have interviewed/worked with subject matter experts (SMEs) to understand, articulate and document both user facing and technical product information. You are also proficient with Markdown and GitHub repo management (planned documentation stack is to be managed via both). Experience in an Agile/Scrum development methodology is a must.

Prior experience as a technical writer in long term durations for a technical/web delivery product is considered a plus. Technical background/knowledge is preferred to assist with vendor/internal process oriented documentation, alongside user facing content that can get fully technical. Experience with Jira, Confluence or Atlassian tools in general is also a nice-to-have.

You have no problem prioritizing and multitasking with minimal supervision. You work independently, researching products and determining the clearest and most logical way to present information to different audiences.

You love learning. You enjoy playing with new tech and exploring areas that you might not have experience with yet. You are a self-driven, self-learner willing to share knowledge and participate actively in your community.

Having overlap with your team is critical when working in a global remote team. Modus requires all team members to overlap with EST morning hours daily. In addition, reliable high-speed internet is a must.

Things You Might Do

Modus is a fast-growing, and remote-first company, so you'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. That said, here are some things you'll probably do:

  • You will primarily be responsible for producing high end user facing documentation which include both non-technical and technical audiences – with the goal to improve the success of our Client’s product and minimise the feedback cycle by maintaining a well-nourished comprehensive documentation stack to compliment the product
  • Effectively manage the documentation stack and deliver user-focused documentation
  • Work closely with the development team, support teams, and other stakeholders to create and maintain high-quality documentation
  • Engage, collaborate and be proactive with stakeholders to address content gaps, respond to direct customer feedback on documentation, and promote continuous improvement of the documentation experience to keep it nourished beyond the on-going update needs
  • Give back to the community via open source and blog posts
  • Teach and be taught: Modus creates active teams that work in internal and external projects together, giving opportunities to stay relevant with the latest technologies and learning from experts worldwide
  • Interact directly with internal and external clients to represent Modus and its values
