Key Responsibilities:

  • Research, outline, write, and edit new and existing content such as customer onboarding, training resources, help topics, blog posts, etc.

  • Work with internal teams or key members to understand product documentation requirements

  • Independently gather information from subject matter experts to develop, organize, and write procedure manuals, user tutorials and documentation for G Suite adminstrators and end-users of our tools.

  • Work with Product Development and Customer Success leads to identify all documentation repositories, revise and edit, and determine the best solution for compilation and centralized storage

  • Develop technical content for maximum usability, with a consistent and cohesive voice across all documentation

  • Write technical guides answering common questions and describing key functionality in an engaging, easy to understand way.

  • Translate the latest updates in our products and the Google space into feature articles that explain the changes and the impact they’ll have.

  • Work with schools and partners to create case studies that explore how Amplified IT has helped them transform the way they educate

Ideal Requirements:

  • 3+ years’ technology/education industry experience as an effective technical writer

  • Proven ability to quickly learn and understand complex topics and translate into informative, easy to understand content

  • Strong experience owning an end-to-end documentation creation process

  • Superior written and verbal communication skills, with a keen eye for detail

  • Strong understanding of G Suite

Nice to Have:

  • Previous software development experience

What can Amplified IT do for you?
