A technical writer at WebCreek, also known as a Tech Writer, has a variety of responsibilities related to writing, editing, proofreading, copy production, and anything else in which clarity of language is required.
The main focus of a technical writer is to work as part of a team and to support the language needs for particular workgroups dedicated to developing defined projects. Projects in which the Tech Writer are involved will be assigned as needed. Different projects could require different skills and different kinds of writing, such as the following:
User Manuals: Tech Writers could be responsible for writing or editing user manuals. This requires getting involved with programmers and developers to understand the ways projects work, and to write in such a way that a broad audience can understand the content.
Marketing: Different products at WebCreek have websites with blogs that help to market them to the general public. A Tech Writer could be involved with writing blogs or other materials to help market WebCreek products.
Internal Processes: Tech Writers are responsible for keeping employee and internal documentation about internal processes up-to-date and clear for other employees to easily follow.
Editing: Programmers and editors develop content, presentations, manuals, or other technical content that requires editing to clean up language and improve clarity. Tech Writers are responsible for supporting these functions to help create the best presentation possible.
Other tasks, as needed: Being a dynamic company, new opportunities may develop which require work that hasn’t been previously defined. A Tech Writer at WebCreek is expected to use his or her language skills to help out with these kinds of projects as well. If you have other skills, you may also be asked to apply them to the benefit of the company. Being a Tech Writer is a good opportunity both to write and to develop other skills.
