VIEW JOBS 9/24/2019 12:00:00 AM 2019-12-23T00:00 At Anaplan, we are looking for a self-motivated CONTENT SPECIALIST (TECHNICAL WRITER) to join our growing team in SAN FRANCISCO and contribute as a member of the Global Technical Content organization located in San Francisco, Minneapolis, London and York, UK. As a Content Specialist, you will be contributing ideas and be engaged with the latest thinking in the area to improve the way we write, deliver content and communicate accurately with our readers. We are looking to improve the quality of our content and we need you to support the implementation of a component content management system to provide structure for the development of all of our content. We are aiming high and we need your help on the journey. Having an interest in content itself, how it's written, how it's structured, and how it's delivered in an omnichannel environment will allow you to fit right in! We're in a growth phase at the moment and we're looking for writers/technologists who are clever, adaptable, keen to learn across all the latest thinking in content development. We're part of Software Engineering, so it would be great if you had some experience with the Agile process and scrum tools such as Jira and Confluence (but read on, it's not a show stopper, if you don't.) Traditionally, this might have been called a technical writing role. It is. However, it's so much more than that. Primarily, we're looking for adaptable people who can understand technical concepts and systems quickly and then write quality copy, following our style guidelines. That copy will be based on standard technical writing principles for writing user documentation with a friendly, conversational style. We need you to write, write, write, and love doing it! Located in the heart of the SOMA district, you can feel the excitement and energy of what we do at Anaplan when you step into our San Francisco office. We're a high-growth company developing best-in-class solutions to planning at an enterprise scale. Our customers rely on Anaplan as an always-on shared source of truth as they navigate the constant change and planning required to stay on top in the marketplace—we're pioneering the Connected Planning discipline to help business make decisions more quickly and decisively than ever before. We work hard, but we also don't wait for an excuse to have fun and we inspire each other! This role is an immediate full-time position. If you are a curious, dynamic individual who wants to be engaged with writing and communicating in all its forms, then look no further! What you'll be doing: * Write technical solutions for our software platform. Those solutions might include written documentation of end user features, videos, infographics, walkthroughs, or API documentation. One day: chat bots, but we're not there, yet! * Work with the lovely people in our engineering teams across the globe. Attend meetings to gather requirements; ask questions (possibly via Webex); occasionally be available to remote teams, across time zones, to gather requirements and feedback. * Work closely with other members of the technical content team to ensure timely delivery of content: we work as a team, and help out wherever we can. No silos. No throwing things over the fence. We all own it and we work together to deliver it. * Work closely with other members of the technical content team to ensure consistent style and tone across all content by reviewing each other's work, before submitting it for Editorial review; helping to define and maintain a set of common templates for different forms of documentation; and contributing generally to improving the writing process. * Be enthusiastic, detail-oriented, and happy in your work! More about you: * At least 2 years' experience as a technical writer, preferably in a software environment. * Fluent in English with a wide vocabulary and strong grammar. Though we're happy if you have another language — localization is part of our brief too. * Tenacious — not intimidated by complex systems (our systems can be quite complex). * Organized and focused. You'll need to ensure that release content, information requests, and tasks are well-planned, executed to the highest standard, and delivered on time. * Perceptive and empathetic. Able understand customer needs and develop the kinds of information products they require. * Proactive — determined to use your strong communication skills to engage our experts and customers in a friendly, respectful manner. * Innovative — with a desire to deliver world-class documentation across different media and a commitment to continual learning and keeping abreast of industry developments. * Open to change. We're a fast-growing company — you'll need to be open to accepting and working with constant change. Bonus Points: * Experience working with enterprise business planning or financial data is a plus. * Familiar with the Agile development process and knowledge of Confluence, JIRA and GIT are also a plus as these will be the primary vehicles for the delivery and organization of your work. What we offer: * A rewarding, progressive career with a company that values diversity, flexibility and understands the need for a good work/life balance. * Market-leading salaries combined with generous bonuses, equity and a range of comprehensive benefits. * Regular agile meet-ups, events and hackathons (both attending and hosting!) * 3 days of paid leave every year to help support the charity or cause of your choice. * Huge problems to solve –you will constantly be learning and pushing boundaries, working with some of the most committed people around!
