About Manualise

Since 2010, we have been known as the specialist in developing, improving and managing A-quality manuals. We get to work for a lot of great clients, including Ziggo, Urban Arrow, Solis of Switzerland, Fischer, Kyocera Senco and Mokveld. Because we are barely coping with the growing demand from the market, we are looking for new additions to our team.

About the position

As a technical writer, you will develop, write and illustrate user manuals for products. Primarily, these are consumer products, but occasionally machinery, plant and/or software products come along. You will be involved in the entire process, from providing the quotation for the new or existing customer to shaping the final product. You will manage your own schedule, be assigned your own projects and communicate directly with clients.

You will be working in a small but fine growing company with a young team of enthusiastic millennials. There is room to develop yourself in specific sub-areas of the design process: writing texts, creating illustrations, formatting, etc. And above all, we are always open to good ideas and own initiative!

Job Requirements

  • You hold a technical Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in a relevant discipline, such as Industrial (Product) Design, Mechanical Engineering, Process Technology or Electrical Engineering
  • You have excellent knowledge of the Dutch and English languages both verbally and in writing
  • You are good at managing projects and meeting deadlines is the most natural thing in the world for you
  • You can work well independently, but are also a team player
  • You have a good technical understanding and love figuring things out
  • You have a talent for structuring information and representing it clearly in words/pictures
  • You have excellent technical understanding
  • You have communication skills
  • You are results-oriented
  • Experience with Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator and SolidWorks Composer is a plus

  • An informal workplace in Delft, with eventually the possibility of working partly from home
  • Flexible working hours
  • A lot of freedom in performing your duties
  • Varied and challenging projects
  • Room for development
  • Cozy colleagues
