Technical Writer

Product Barcelona, Spain


Description

Your Opportunity

At New Relic, docs are a core component of the product experience. Our words bring life and personality to our products. We're here to help users understand our platform, onboard, and ultimately become power users. Our writing helps our users build better software and love our products even more.

Do you like talking docs as much as you love writing them? You'll join a team of passionate writers looking to do the best work of their careers, united by a curiosity for the finer points of writing and technology. If that sounds as exciting to you as it did to all of us, let's talk!

What You’ll Do

  • Write, edit, and architect our docs. You ensure the content gets our users all the info they need, without too much info getting in the way.
  • Scope and ship documentation for new features. You see the value in our products, not just the features, and create docs that show off the value without boring our users.
  • Clarify complexity. Speak to developers in a language they can understand, and write approachable technical documentation for complex concepts.
  • Work on an agile writing team, and apply agile project management practices to technical documentation.

Your Qualifications

Must have:

  • Proven experience as a technical writer for an agile software company.
  • Outstanding technical writing skills. You cut quickly through jargon, write and rewrite until your meaning is crystal-clear, and inject a bit of humanity too.
  • An authority at organizing information in an easy-to-understand hierarchy, knowing that layout and content design helps relay information to readers.
  • Thrive in a fast-paced environment. You can support several writing projects at once, without losing the details.
  • Experience working with software developers, so you know how developers think and communicate. Our products are built by devs for devs!
  • A strong opinion about the Oxford comma.
  • Experience with GitHub.

Nice to have:

  • Experience giving and receiving feedback on writing, based on a shared style guide.
  • Knowledge of the observability industry or SRE practices, and familiarity with the tools like Kubernetes or AWS used to build modern platforms.

Please note that visa sponsorship is not available for this position.

We're looking for bold and passionate people to be a part of our mission to create more perfect software. We'd love to have you apply, even if you don't feel you meet every single requirement. What's most important to us is finding authentic and accountable people who feel connected to our mission and values, not just candidates who check off all the boxes.

We believe in empowering all Relics to achieve professional, and business success through a workforce model called Flex First. The Flex First model allows us to work in a variety of workplaces that best support our success, including fully office-based, fully remote, or a combination of both.
