Here’s the role: We need a rising-star technical writer to create Windows content for IT administrators—an amazing entry-level opportunity!

 

The challenge: Innovate. Create. Use your skills and laser-sharp focus to teach customers about Windows client and server technologies. We create everything from tutorials to long-form articles to videos – bring your ideas on all the ways we can help IT administrators use Windows and Windows Server.

 

The impact: You have a direct and positive influence on the worldwide IT community and the everyday lives of millions of people.

 

Your typical day:

-      Attend shiproom to deliver status on current work.

-      Meet with product manager to deep-dive on the new feature that’s going into public preview. Develop an outline of how best to doc it. 

-      Install the latest build on your VM so you can see UI changes in place.

-      Respond to a customer question about a confusing step in one of your articles. Edit and publish an update to the article on docs.microsoft.com.

 

You’ve got:

•      Samples—show us your best stuff, the work that makes you proud—could include tutorials, graphics, videos, papers, blogs, forums, articles, technical content, documentation, or other customer-facing content. 

•      Passion for explaining things so others can learn from your experience. Are you the go-to person for new apps and programs?

•      Passion for writing, language, and communication. You love figuring out the best way to communicate a message, and the idea of pairing words with images or video doesn’t scare you, so long as it tells the right story in the right way. 

•      Comfortable digging into technology – how it works, how it plays with other software. Familiarity with client and server concepts a plus.

•      Commitment to building innovative and modern content that will inspire and motivate customers using Microsoft platforms and services.

•      Excellent planning, writing, and communication skills 

•      The ability to thrive in ambiguity with creativity and innovation

 

Required basic qualifications: 

•      B.S. in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Information Systems, Information Management, Technical Communications, English, or similar degree.
