About the role:

Limeade is looking for a highly organized and passionate technical writer who can bring order to chaos.  The ideal candidate will have experience creating a system from the ground up that developers can use to find API documentation, code samples, and SDKs.  Once such a system is online, you would be responsible for organizing and consolidating existing documentation as well as creating new content as needed.  This is a unique opportunity to act as our first Technical Writer and help us shape the function as a whole.

On a typical day, you would be creating new content, keeping existing content up to date, and working with both technical and non-technical teams to make sure they have access to the information they need to be successful.

Responsibilities:

  • Owning the process to create and organize technical documentation, tutorials, SDKs, and code samples
    • Working with developers to create and update technical documentation
    • Building an external developer community used by our partners and customers
  • Act as the technical contact for sales proposal team
  • Managing libraries of technical content
  • Additional projects relating to technical writing as needed

Requirements:

  • Ability to demonstrate our values in an on-going and consistent way – with a specific focus on “Speak Plainly” and “We’re a Team” to emphasize collaboration and communication skills
  • 3-5 years of experience in technical writing
  • Strong passion for organizing and cataloging technical content
  • Familiar with web-based APIs and SaaS
  • Knowledge of tools and software products related to organizing technical content online
  • A presence on Stack Overflow or GitHub is a strong plus
