Job Qualifications and Technical Skill Sets:

  • Bachelor’s degree in a relevant technical field and 2+ years of experience in technical writing or software documentation. You can use your expert-level knowledge about the tech industry knowledge to inform your writing, supplemented by thorough research that aligns with our client’s expectations and speaks to their audience. 

  • Familiarity with systems development life cycle (SDLC). You’re familiar with the various stages of SDLC including requirements, system design, implementation, testing, and deployment. 

  • Experience with both print and digital media formats. You’re also proficient in word processor programs such as Microsoft Word and Google Docs and PDF software such as Adobe Acrobat.  

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, and healthy analytical and critical thinking skills. You turn complex financial concepts into compelling narratives. You’re skilled at finding the story within complicated topics and can capture our client’s brand voice in every piece of writing.

  • SEO experience. You know how to search-optimize your content without sacrificing quality, and can balance the needs of both your client and reader within your content. 

  • Experience interviewing subject matter experts. You’re comfortable independently conducting SME interviews to add industry opinion and narrative to your content. You know how to draft questions to get the information you need and how to structure stories around the answers.

  • Time management and organizational skills. You always meet your deadlines—or communicate in advance when you may need a deadline pushed back. 

  • Positive attitude. You’re kind, passionate, curious, and friendly! You’re open to exploring new ideas, keep updated on trending topics in the financial services industry, and feel passionately about crafting excellent content. You welcome feedback and love learning how to improve your craft. 

Other Preferred Qualifications:

  • Familiarity with HTML and CSS. You have a basic understanding of the different elements of HTML and CSS. 

  • Some B2B, SaaS, and marketing experience. We primarily work with clients in these fields. Writing and/or first-hand experience in one or more of these areas will help you acclimate to our working environment and excel in your craft. For this role, we prioritize writers who have experience working in finance or writing for financial services tech. 

Portfolio

A recent portfolio with technical writing experience is a must; please submit 3-5 sample articles that have been published within the past three years for consideration. Older samples will be accepted only if accompanied by newer works.
