Technical writers plan, create, and maintain educational content as an integral part of the engineering or user experience. The content is often in the form of documentation, but may also be UI text, sample code, videos, or other educational material. Regardless of the content medium, technical writers are distinguished by their abilities to explain complex topics in a way that’s useful to their audience.
As a Technical Writer on the Cloud software engineering team, you'll create content targeted for other third-party engineers working on an array of interesting problems. Specifically, on the Cloud Tools team, you’ll drive documentation for Google Cloud’s premiere development tools such as the Google Cloud Software Development Kit (SDK), Cloud Shell, and Cloud Code. On the Serverless team, you'll have the opportunity to create processes and docs that will help scale the product to include events across Google and beyond, depending on users’ needs. And on the Google Kubernetes Engine team, you'll cover concepts, tutorials, quick-starts, integrated developer tools, APIs, samples, and leverage other types of content such as videos.
