Job Description

About r2c

Our mission is to make world-class software security available to everyone. This means building program analysis tools that are open source, easy to use, powerful, and fast. It also means building a team with security expertise and a passion for great developer experiences. Most of all, it means working with honesty and respect in a diverse community of dreamers and builders. We’ve redefined static analysis tooling by committing to all of these, and turned our project, Semgrep, into an essential safeguard for code at Snowflake, Dropbox, and more.

What you’ll do

  • Create technical written material to help users understand and realize the value of Semgrep
  • Publish weekly Semgrep release notes to community Slack and Twitter
  • Write or edit documentation for new or newly-deprecated Semgrep features in Semgrep’s docs
  • Write weekly blog posts that highlight newly-released Semgrep features

What you have

  • 2+ years of experience writing, editing, and planning software documentation
  • Experience writing technical blog posts about software features
  • A love for enabling, helping, and guiding others to help them do something new
  • Superb written communication skills and outstanding grammar skills
  • Great teaching skills that translate into amazing written work
  • Experience writing in Markdown, using Git or GitHub, and familiarity with the command-line, HTML/CSS and/or at least one programming language (not necessarily in a professional context)
  • Experience managing documentation as code and using static site generators

Who we are

We have people from France and the Philippines, physics and philosophy, formal methods research and full fledged corporations. We’re new parents and new grads, aspiring authors and aspiring Americans, dog lovers and dogfooders. We get together often to bike, bake, and meet up in parks. In our interactions, we believe respect and honesty go hand in hand, and prioritize both.

r2c is an equal-opportunity employer seeking a diverse range of backgrounds. We value who you are — including your cultural heritage, your socioeconomic status, your age, your race, your gender, your sexual orientation, your disabilities. We value what’s vitally important to you — your family, your religion, your politics. We value what you love in this world — your music, your weekend pursuits. We believe in welcoming varied professional backgrounds, educations, and interests. If you’re exceptional in your role, believe in r2c’s mission, and treat r2c’s values as your own, you belong here.
