Google Technical Editor, Google Cloud in Seattle, Washington

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 Google. They are a key link between engineers, marketing associates, developer advocates, as well as all the external users and developers, tying together many vital but disparate parts of the Google ecosystem.

As a Technical Editor working on Cloud Tools, you’ll support cloud tools for developer integrated development environments, including Visual Studio, Android Studio, Eclipse, PowerShell, and IntelliJ. You’ll communicate with hundreds of thousands of developers worldwide through conceptual documentation, detailed how-to guides, code samples, and other online materials. You might have a background as a developer, and be an experienced communicator who has a passion for coding.
