Technical Author – Software

Role: Technical Author for a Software AI Control System

Rate: up to £50 per hour, inside IR35

Location of work: Fully Remote

Contract length: 6 months initially, with opportunity to extend

The Role: 

A leading software business who are pushing the edge with the revolution of AI are looking for an exceptional and self-motivated Technical Author to pull together all the information required to deliver a complex user manual. The Technical Author will need the ability to produce exceptional content, be from a technical background but most importantly be able to be bullish in their approach to obtaining information from a group that consists of 10 teams.

The content that needs to be written will not be provided to the individual on a plate and if the Technical Author cannot find the information required to create the content, the Technical Author will need to be able to fight the battle to gain the information. The release of the software is due in 2024 and as a result the teams will be focussed on delivery and obtaining the content and information will be a challenge, the Technical Author must be prepared to “ruffle feathers” speak with multiple stake holders, be happy not to hide behind team leaders and grasp all the key decision makers and pull the content together.

The Technical Author will be from a technical background and be able to work with teams located throughout Europe, we are not looking for a content writer, we are looking for an experienced Technical Author who is able to dig deep into technical minds and technical teams and create documentation in an environment that when the pressure is on for release date, could be frantic. The information will then be written into exceptional prose.

The best way to view this role is understanding 3 elements of technical authoring which are technical skills, writing skills and business skills, all 3 are needed combined with the diplomacy of working with those who do not necessarily want, or feel the need to provide the information needed to produce an exceptional technical document.

Skills required:

  • Content Writing
  • Business intuition
  • Software Background

Desirable experience:

  • Automotive knowledge
  • Delivering training or writing training material
  • Software or Electronics background
