Technical Writer
May 12, 2008 12:33 PM

For mBalance, a company developing SMS networking servers (routing, applications, storage, billing, etc.)

Looking for a highly competent Technical Writer to produce and manage the product documentation of the mBalance products. The Technical Writer will interact directly with Engineers and process the existing R&D documentation of the TextPass products into end user documentation. The role requires a technical background and an expert knowledge of word processing tools such as MS Word.


* Native English language skills;
* At least 3 years experience as technical writer, preferably in a software product environment;
* Expert knowledge and experience of word processing, preferably MS Word;
* Good knowledge and experience of graphic editing tools, preferably MS PowerPoint;
* Proven ability to conform to company documentation style;
* Solid technical background supported by technical training;
* Proven ability to quickly grasp new technical information;
* Experience with document management;
* Professional attitude and eagerness to deliver high quality work;
* Involvement in technical and commercial product document reviews.

It's a great opportunity - cool company, growing very quickly, they know that documentation is a very important part of the process, nice people, good atmosphere. Plus, you'd become my colleague, and I am -as we all know- very good company. If you live outside of Amsterdam/the Netherlands but want to move here, I know the company helps out with the moving process (though I don't know to what extent - I didn't have to move myself).

This is an in-house job based in Amsterdam. Telecommuting is possible to some extent; you'd have to be physically present part of the time, though.

The above is a mix of my own input and the job description we have, by the way, and I typed it in under three minutes. So if it looks goofy, meh. :)

payscale: Gee. $55,000? I don't know, you haggle. ;)
job type: full-time
