Technical Content Editor, London (1301)

£Highly competitive + excellent bonus + benefits + share options

Job Details

Our hugely successful enterprise software client is looking for an experienced technical content editor to join their growing technical documentation team in London.

In this technically challenging and exciting role, you’ll work closely with a team of technical writers to review and assess all documentation from both editorial and strategic perspectives. As well as going through material with a fine toothed comb and picking out typos and grammatical errors, you’ll also evaluate it, looking beyond the page, identifying gaps and suggesting ways to fill them. Documents you will review comprises developer-level information such as APIs through to end user online help and informative animations.

You’ll also contribute to overall documentation standards through which our client measures the quality of their content. In doing so, you’ll act as a mentor to the technical authors, ensuring they meet documentation briefs and that the content they produce is well structured and in alignment with the company’s documentation strategy.

This is not a role for a copyeditor and it is not a role for those who shy away from challenges! There is a lot to learn, but if you’re looking for a varied, stimulating and strategic role where you can build on your technical experience with a fast-paced and ambitious software company, then this could be the role for you.

What's needed?

  • Comprehensive experience of reviewing, identifying gaps in and suggesting improvements to technical content as a technical editor.
  • At least five years’ experience as a “technical” technical author, writing API documentation and other material aimed at developers.
  • Strategic input and new ideas for keeping documentation relevant, engaging and interesting.
  • Experience of mentoring less experienced technical authors and encouraging their development as writers with enthusiasm and patience.
  • An unwaveringly optimistic attitude to change; in fact, you’ll need to embrace it!
  • A can-do, positive and spirited outlook.


In exchange for the above, you’ll receive a highly competitive salary + 15% bonus, share options and excellent benefits. You’ll also get to work in an attractive, spacious and easily accessible Central London office where flexible hours are accommodated.
