Salesforce team is using the Salesforce platform to build world-class applications for vertical markets, such as Financial Services and Healthcare, and we’re hiring a technical writer in the Hyderabad office.
You have a talent for clarifying complex jargon infested stuff and producing clear, concise, and engaging content. You’ll create content for Trailhead (trailhead.salesforce.com), which is our fun and engaging online learning platform, for the Financial Services Cloud and Health Cloud products (and eventually others). Your audiences will be end users (such as financial services advisors and health care coordinators), and administrators and developers who are installing and customizing Industries applications. You’ll collaborate closely with product managers, customer success managers, and writers in the US.
You already know, from years of experience, that being a technical writer involves:
Asking plenty of questions so you understand not just how something works, but why it matters to the people using it.
Serving as the voice of our users and figuring out the best way to get them the information they need when and where they need it.
Digging into the stuff you’re writing about so you understand not just how it works, but why it matters to the people using it.
Writing in the style that is most suitable for its audience.
Our ideal team member:
Has the flexibility and openness to adopt our team's style, processes, and practices, but isn't afraid to suggest improvements that will benefit our team.
Enjoys working closely as part of a team, has the people and communication skills to do that well, and can carve out focused time in a busy day to get work done independently.
Is comfortable participating in cross-functional team meetings, at times dealing with the challenges of time zones.
Enjoys digging into technology and troubleshooting issues independently.
Is persistent, and creative when it’s necessary, about getting the information needed to get the job done.
