The world of cloud data services has become a rich and complex space, and its customers and users often struggle to make sense of it. It’s not enough to simply “doc all the things”; now, technical documentation and education must clearly and expertly guide customers through options, features, products, and decisions that will inform engineering choices and lead them to the best solutions for their needs.

To do that with Databricks documentation, we need experience. We particularly need experienced writers who know how to break down complex cloud-based services and deliver well-designed technical content that guides data engineers and developers to love the Databricks platform and the power and flexibility it offers. We are looking for a technical writer (or if you have prior technical documentation experience) who deeply understands the engineering audience and has experience with cloud platforms.

The impact you will have:

  • Develop technical content and code examples that spans the Databricks product, focusing on the needs of Databricks’ data engineering and developer customers
  • Create, define, and drive technical content strategies and documentation site features
  • Mentor and develop junior writers and peers
  • Inform and inspire our customers, setting standards for great technical content all-around!

  • 5+ years of technical writing experience working with cloud services
  • Technical writer, product manager, developer relations, or support engineering background
  • Demonstrated strong technical writing skills
