You will have ownership over key documentation projects in Dremio's long-term product roadmap. You should be customer-focused and enjoy working with subject matter experts in various roles. You should be an expert builder who is comfortable working in a dynamic and fast-paced environment, and have a roll-up-your-sleeves, entrepreneurial spirit. To succeed in this role, you should have a technical background in data engineering, data science, and/or business analytics.


What you’ll be doing


  • Research, write, and maintain high-quality technical content (SQL commands and functions, API docs, user guide content).

  • Help define processes for writing documentation (SQL reference, API reference, user guides, overviews, troubleshooting, etc.) within product and engineering teams.
  • Work with users outside of the documentation team to encourage contributions to our documentation.
  • Contribute to and promote high-quality documentation standards and practices.
  • Must be able to work independently without direction, and review all considerations and to determine how and when work is completed.
  • Think and plan at the program-level planning, managing all considerations, as you will be involved in broad, organizational, cross-functional initiative planning.


What we’re looking for


  • 12+ years of relevant experience in technical writing, product documentation, or online publishing (writing samples required).
  • You are passionate about instructional writing, with a focus on clarity, straightforward storytelling, and an information architect's approach to organizing material.
  • Expert in the field of technical writing, with solid written and verbal communication skills and the ability to quickly establish good working relationships with subject matter experts on multiple teams.
  • Ability to effectively realign priorities to meet shifting business needs and proactively influence the time requirements of others.
  • Extensive and demonstrated experience developing content for SaaS and Enterprise applications.
  • Must be highly detail-oriented, ensuring that you can produce the highest quality deliverables within required timelines to meet goals.
  • Excellent time and project management skills that will enable you to start, build, and complete multiple documentation initiatives and prioritize your time to align with the organizational goals.
  • Advanced and working knowledge of SQL, data warehousing, analytics, and public cloud technologies (AWS, Azure, etc.).
  • Experience using and documenting APIs and programming languages (Java, Python, etc.).
  • Ability to manage and coordinate your work across multiple teams in a fast-paced development environment.
  • Experience in a docs-as-code environment, using technologies like markdown, Git, and static site generators.
  • Experience using Atlassian Jira and Confluence for issue tracking and knowledge management.
  • Demonstrated ability to understand and adapt to new technologies and learn quickly.
