We do contract technical writing for a wide variety of companies in the Silicon Valley area. Our clients are located anywhere from San Jose to San Francisco. Most of our clients are producing APIs for various specialized apps or applications. You will need to be on-site at least part of the time, usually working with software engineers who are working frantically to get the next release out. If you are in the East Bay, be sure you are OK about driving to the Peninsula - most of our business is over here.

Our clients want responsible, intelligent, efficient, very capable senior technical writers. You should be at home working with software developers, understanding the API they are creating, and describing it in detail for the developers who will be using that API. Our clients will expect you to know something about Java and/or JavaScript, something about RESTful application architecture, something about Agile development, and a lot about API documentation.

If you are a senior technical writer who knows about software, but doesn't know about API documentation, we can train you, but your compensation will be lower while you are learning.

Our current needs are for people with knowledge or interest in cloud-based solutions for corporate computing. We also have an open API writing position.

Our company places a high value on congenial, responsible, professional writers who have superior technical capabilities and who can work independently. Although our business is contract technical writing, the writers that work for us are employees. We try to make a long-term, commitment to the people we hire.

If you think you fit this profile and might want to work with us, please respond with a resume and a writing sample.
