Who you are
Experienced. We're looking for people who have experience building and shipping commercial software.
You are a skilled communicator with experience in technical writing or a related discipline. You've worked with your share of tools and processes and always put the customer first. Localization? Oh, yeah, you know all about that.
IT aware. Do terms like server configuration, high availability, and performance tuning sound familiar? We help server administrators install, configure, tune, and troubleshoot their servers, which may be running online, in the cloud, or on-premises.
Developer aware. Got script?
Java, C#, C++, Python, Rubyif you can work with any of these (or if you want to learn), that's a big plus. We explain to developers how they can use APIs to work with Tableau.
Agile. Standups, scrums, and sprints have been part of your everyday work.
People-friendly. You work easily with other writers, developers, marketing folks, and, of course, with customers.
Hands on. Your typical approach to figuring out how something works is to install it and dive in.
Scenario focused. You know that features do not exist outside of a broader user experience. You create content that delivers end-to-end solutions for your audience.
Creative. You're constantly thinking about the shortest distance between the problem and the solution, and you're able to convey that in a beautiful way.
Independent. No one needs to tell you what to doyou typically already know, and you're probably already working on it.
Sound like fun? Come talk to us, show us your work, and join our team!
