Technical writers take complex information and communicate it
clearly, concisely and accurately without relying on technical or
corporate jargon to explain what they're trying to say. With a
unique cross functional perspective, our team of technical writers
are the key link between our engineers, marketing associates,
developer advocates and external users and developers who comprise
the wide Google ecosystem. As a Technical Writer, you juggle a
variety of projects, from reading and writing example code, to
updating FAQs, to drafting product announcements. When a new
technical challenge rises to forefront, you are there to defuse it
with your clarifying pen (or keyboard, more likely).
You will be a part of a team of writers who develop
documentation for teams in the Google Data Centers. You will
interact with engineering and other operations groups to define
deliverables, priorities, standards, and are responsible for
writing and editing of the product documentation. You will advocate
the information experience, possess excellent writing abilities,
and enjoy improving their teams.
Behind everything our users see online is the architecture built
by the Technical Infrastructure team to keep it running. From
developing and maintaining our data centers to building the next
generation of Google platforms, we make Google's product portfolio
possible. We're proud to be our engineers' engineers and love
voiding warranties by taking things apart so we can rebuild them.
We keep our networks up and running, ensuring our users have the
best and fastest experience possible.
