Technical Copywriter - Freelance

Creative Seattle, Washington

You’re a technology storyteller.

Your writing both educates and captivates audiences.

POP seeks to partner with an experienced freelance Technical Copywriter with a deep understanding of cloud technologies (preferably Microsoft Azure) to assist on creating a variety of long-form materials including e-books, whitepapers, and blog posts for potential upcoming needs. These materials will be targeted toward decision makers and practitioners in the enterprise technology space with the goal of furthering their knowledge and understanding of cloud solutions, including architecture, database, security, mobility, DevOps, hybrid, and so on. This audience is already highly knowledgeable about the cloud and distinctly allergic to marketing, so delivering content that is authentic and engaging at the appropriate altitude (think: in the weeds) is a requirement.
