MeiliSearch’s mission is to create a best-in-class user-facing search experience for every website and application. We are building a blazingly fast and ultra-relevant search engine made in Rust that allows our partners to have a powerful search engine without initial configuration. Features such as typo-tolerance, filters, and synonyms are provided right out of the box.
We are fully open source: We strongly believe that the best way to realize our vision is through transparent collaboration and exchange with the open source community. We have a vibrant connection with our community of early adopters and builders. We are in contact every day and eagerly incorporate feedback from our contributors.
We raised a €1.5m pre-seed round in May 2020, and are backed by 3 of the best investors in Europe: LocalGlobe, Seedcamp, & Kima Ventures. We have already partnered with industry heavyweights like Louis Vuitton and Platform.sh.
We are a team of passionate people and our project is growing fast (+10K GitHub stars in 12 months). In order to support our external communication efforts and our open-source community's growth, we are looking for a Technical Writer, for a full-time permanent position starting as soon as possible.
We are looking for a Technical Writer with experience in software documentation, blog content, and other forms of external communication. The ideal candidate has a specialization in low-level languages, is a native English-speaker, and has at least three years of experience in the tech writing space.
Initially, you will be part of the Developer Relations Team, which is a fully-remote team composed of 3 people: Carolina, our Junior Developer Advocate, as well as Gui and Tommy, our Technical Writers. Their mission is to help developers be successful by nurturing a healthy open-source community around MeiliSearch. This means listening to, inspiring, educating, and supporting our community however we can.
As the company moves forward in the months to come, our goal is to separate the Technical Writing team from the Developer Relations team in order to gain agility. Ideally we will have a technical writer attached to each technical team. You should therefore expect a few organizational changes along the way.
Your fit with our team is as important to us as your technical background, if not more so. We are looking for someone with these important soft skills:
Nice to have:
MeiliSearch is an equal opportunity employer. We strive to develop an inclusive work environment that reflects the diversity of our open-source community.
