We’ve just amended the job description for the contract vacancy #4175 Contract Technical Author, Swindon. This project involves working on Cloud-based applications, rather than enterprise software, which means the content will be written in Markdown rather than DITA.
Ideally, you will have experience in the following areas:
- Developing web-based online Help
- Working in an Agile environment
- Cloud-based solutions
- Video-based instruction (although is less important).
Apologies for any confusion caused.
See #4175 Contract Technical Author, Swindon.
