Technical Writer/Project Manager

Sunnyvale,CA

Technical Writers communicate complex information clearly, concisely and accurately, and without relying on jargon. As a Technical Writer, your role involves tasks such as writing conceptual overviews and procedures, reading and writing example code, or updating help center queries and FAQs.

Technical Writers play a big part at WalmartLabs. They are a key link between Engineers, Product Managers, Developers, and users, tying together many vital but disparate parts of the technical WalmartLabs experience.

As a Technical Writer working on developer products, you might support some of the world's most popular developer platforms. You might have a background as a developer or devops engineer, and write as a hobby; or perhaps you're an experienced communicator who loves digging deep into code. One thing is for certain - you are passionate about helping developers do amazing things.

The ideal candidate is an independent and curious self-starter with a demonstrated ability to produce high-quality developer focused technical content, drive complex documentation projects, collaborate with designers and technologists, and quickly grasp new technical concepts with enthusiasm.
