SonarCloud Documentation Geek

The impact you can have

We’re looking for a Documentation Geek for Sonarcloud, our online platform for code quality and security.

The SonarCloud team is a multi-talented team, composed of developers, designers, product managers, infrastructure engineers, all dedicated to make SonarCloud the best cloud product for developers who care about their code.

To achieve this goal, we need a talented tech writer. SonarCloud will only be the best product online if we ship best-in-class documentation with it.

To date, SonarCloud documentation has been maintained by an ad-hoc team composed of Product Managers, Developers, and members of the Services team. As SonarCloud grows and generates heavy traction, creating and maintaining its documentation must become a dedicated delivery domain.

On a daily basis, you will

  • Drive the overall documentation strategy
  • Structure and write documentation for SonarCloud
  • Collaborate with developers, designers, and product managers during sprints for continuous documentation delivery
  • Engage with both our user community and the Support team
  • Copyedit other content intended for external consumption
  • Play a key role in the team in identifying creative approaches or solutions, actively promote collaboration and teamwork to ensure best team results
  • Provide input on the copywriting inside SonarCloud interface to ensure good understanding and intuitive user experience. 

The skills you will demonstrate

  • Native English speaker. We've standardized on American English, so that variant is preferred but not required
  • Open-minded and very positive can-do attitude
  • Lifelong learner, curious to explore new approaches
  • Passionate about tech and geek culture
  • Minimum of 2 years of professional writing experience would be a plus
  • Fluid, laid-back writing style
  • Pragmatic approach to perfection and iterative improvement processes
  • Ability to distill complexity to clear, simple explanations
  • Experience with agile practices and principles
  • Enough self-confidence to challenge the status quo and be challenged

 Office location

Office based in Geneva but the role in remote-friendly. However, the future Documentation Geek should live in a place where timezone is close to Geneva one.

If this sounds like you, apply now with your resume and two or three representative samples of your writing.

What we do

Every day we are focused on solving developers’ next big problem.

If there’s one main message we want you to remember about us, it’s that we push others to be best in class at whatever they do: choose your battle, innovate, take risks, and lead change. Join us; we’ll be smarter and stronger together.
