Full-time Technical Writing

Job Description

As a Technical Writer at Ubi MTL, you create and maintain understandable, usable documentation about our in-house game production pipeline, Anvil.

Not only do you have a thorough grasp of the subject matter you’re communicating but you also have a deep understanding of your audience: programmers and other highly technical, advanced users.

You anticipate and provide the information they need, plus define how to go about best diffusing it across the company.

 

What you’ll do

  • Collaborate with production teams to discuss the technologies and workflows to be documented.
     
  • Write, format, and edit various forms of documentation (standard operating procedures, APIs, etc.) + add supporting graphics.
     
  • Facilitate knowledge sharing throughout our studios & help colleagues put together accurate well-written communications.
     
  • Partner with content specialists to define documentation standards and best practices. 
     
  • Participate in assessing and proposing software and methods to continuously improve our documentation processes.

Qualifications

What you bring

  • Around 5 years of writing experience or other relevant experience (documenting engine architecture, products, SDKs, APIs, or processes a huge plus) 
  • Ability to distill complex technical concepts into clear, comprehensive, developer-focused documentation
  • A degree in Computer Science or Software Engineering (or related training)
  • A collaborative, innovative, and solution-oriented spirit
  • Curiosity, resourcefulness, and a whole lot of flexibility
  • Excellent organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills

     

What to send our way

  • Your CV, highlighting your background and skills
  • A portfolio of your best work (attach writing samples or send us a link to your personal website or online portfolio)
