Senior technical writer

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 can barely handle the growing demand from the market, we are looking for new additions to our team.

About the position

As a senior technical writer, you will write user manuals for various products. Consider consumer products, machinery, plant and software. You oversee the entire process, from issuing the quotation for the new or existing customer to shaping the final product. You are able to perform or delegate tasks yourself. You manage your own schedule and communicate directly with clients.

You will work in a small company with a flat organizational structure. There is an informal atmosphere where colleagues are always willing to help each other. While we expect you to already have the necessary knowledge and experience, we encourage you to continue to develop. In doing so, we are always open to good ideas and our own initiative.
