Your Role

As a Senior Technical Writer, you will be responsible for generating a large variety of technical documentation for our client’s core product users but also procedures for the engineering teams. This can be operations manuals, maintenance & service manuals, SW release updates, product catalogues to official governmental related acceptance documentation. You will also work on the specific internal safety protocols to be followed by our engineering teams during integration and testing in our factory and work instructions used during installation and service at our customer sites.

The person we need in this position has a clear pioneering role at the intersection of deep technical understanding of the machines and knowing people in the organization. You must be able to identify, approach and bond with the stakeholders in your network so that their information is properly documented. It's a role where building and maintaining your network is just as important as documenting itself. It is a position that requires a considerable degree of self-entrepreneurship. The documentation department must be put on the map and that is why the technical writer also has a clear leading role. You must be able to make a way where there is no way. Overall, these will be your main tasks and responsibilities:

- Planning and prioritization of all required documentation for our client’s core product;

- Setup a documentation database and maintain document templates (also for product generation process);

- Write the technical documentation and make sure it gets approved by the respective stakeholders.
