By creating and improving the written content on CloudVision, our writers support a global client base in building a more interconnected world that drives modern life today.Job Description
Great content is written with a strong understanding, which means that beyond being a stellar writer you’ll have a passion for learning and acquiring new knowledge. You’ll also have the confidence to ask questions, to really probe at matters, and to continually step outside your comfort zone. The ability to analyse and breakdown complex systems is a core skill, as is the creativity and versatility needed to work through problems and see better solutions.
This isn’t your run-of-the-mill content writing job – it’s so much more. You’ll work across CloudVision’s user interface and Help Center to create both micro-copy and long-copy that support and explain product features. These features can be highly complex and technical, and your ability to reduce that complexity through content is central to what CloudVision is. You’ll interview and collaborate with developers, designers, sales engineers and more to understand those features and you’ll offer feedback to improve the product and its features – making content writing a two-way dialogue between content and product.
In this dynamic role, you’ll:
Create, revise, and audit micro-copy on the CloudVision user interface
Write, revise, and research Help Center articles on product features and workflows
Contribute to the CloudVision content style guide
Interview engineers on product features and offer feedback
Collaborate with and support the design team
Learn and research computer networking in detail
Continually improve and build on your expanding skillset
Help spearhead the direction we take with content writing
Use Git, HTML, and CSS to write directly in our code repositories

A strong analytical mindset and a questioning attitude
Teamwork and collaboration skills

We’re open to different experience levels, but this is a writing position and it is essential to have a well-crafted CV and cover letter as part of your application. Be sure to demonstrate your ability to write and research and your capacity and desire to learn.Additional Information
