Job Description

Content Developer - Developer Experience

Your Role and Responsibilities
Not your typical information developer role. As a member of the Developer Experience Information Development team, you will be responsible for designing and developing a quality and engaging content experience through customer documentation. Working with a wider team of developers, designers, and testers, you will need to quickly gain a sound theoretical and practical understanding of the technical details and produce documentation that explains those details in clear English. You will also advise the development team on style and language use within the product. The media that you will use can cover a broad spectrum, including open-source content, tutorials, samples, product embedded help, graphics, and social channels such as videos, blog posts, and podcasts. You will work in a fast-paced environment and to tight deadlines, coordinating your workload with the wider team, but working independently.

 This role is wide-ranging, and you will have the opportunity to develop or hone skills in the following areas:
·      Content design, authoring principles, and tools for creating high-quality information
·      Communication skills in making complex information relevant, useful, and attractive for users
·      Estimate the workload and manage the project schedule by aligning with the overall product release schedule
·      IBM product knowledge, as you work hands-on with the products that you document
·      Verify technical accuracy through documentation, verification tests, and technical reviews by software developers
·      The build, test, and delivery processes that turn our source into client-ready output
·      Programming and scripting languages that drive flexibility and automation into our work
·      Globalization and accessibility
·      Other products and tools that enrich our deliverables or process, such as analytics
