Long-term Contract Technical Writing

Job Description

Do you like writing? Do you have a technological background? Are you familiar with the field of chip design, embedded SW or ASIC/FPGA design? Show us! We have a spare chair for you! 👇

We're Tropic Square, a young modern tech company that deals with embedded security and secure chip design. Currently, we're looking for a person who'll take over the reins of our technical documentation and help us move our business further.

👉 Who exactly are we looking for?

A colleague who already has some experience as a tech writer, can see things in context and has a strong insight into technical content. The best fit is a person who also has an overview in other fields - such as ASIC or FPGA design, embedded SW or security. However, we're well aware that looking for such a person is a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack. Therefore, we don't necessarily require orientation in the mentioned fields.

We mostly need someone to completely cover our technical content. An independent colleague who enjoys working in a team and likes a startup spirit. 🚀

Don’t expect that writing’s all you’ll be doing. Our project is still on the starting track, so the preparation of templates and the overall setup of the system awaits you, too, because we want the creation of content to be as efficient and automated as possible. You'll also participate in our technical marketing or social networks. So, don’t be afraid of boredom!

In return, we offer an opportunity to work on a meaningful project and grow in the company with a strong foreign investor behind its back. If you have the drive and desire to learn, you’ll get the opportunity to become the owner / SME (subject matter expert) over time!

💪 What do we need from you?

  • Experience with Sphinx administration (setup from scratch), basic knowledge of Python and template creation.
  • Experience with writing and editing technical documentation.
  • Orientation in open source technologies.
  • Proactive approach, drive and the ability to get things done.
  • Communicative level of English.

👌 We will be thrilled if:

  • You also have experience with chip design or embedded SW in addition to the other requirements.

🤝 Why should you join us? 

  • You'll get the opportunity to work on a unique project with a high level of freedom.
  • We'll adapt the workload to you - do you prefer part-time or full-time? Just let us know!
  • Flexible working hours are a matter of course for us, as well as the possibility to work from home.
  • You can use our offices in Prague 8, where you’ll also find an unlimited supply of coffee and snacks.
  • If you want to, we can also agree on a full-remote cooperation.
  • We'll gladly support your further growth and education.
  • And we’ll offer you many other benefits. Let’s discuss them during the interview along with your pay.

👋 Sounds good? Contact us, add your CV, show us your work or anything else. We can’t wait to meet you!
