What you’ll do here: 

  • Write and maintain documentation for users and/or programmers
  • Collaborate with project team members on the various copy components that are involved with the project (this may include reviewing in-app copy, helping compose transactional email copy, etc.)
  • Test and research Mailchimp’s new app features 
  • Conduct content audits and help maintain existing Knowledge base content
  • Identify user needs using data and feedback
  • Occasional mentorship or coaching of junior writers 

We’d love to hear from you if: 

  • You have strong experience in instructional and/or technical writing
  • You have strong editorial background 
  • You have demonstrated experience with content planning, editorial procedures, and evaluation
  • You have demonstrated experience prioritizing, starting, and managing projects independently
  • You have demonstrated experience working within product teams or domains and bringing up concerns in a group setting as needed
  • You are comfortable working on new, changing, and fast-paced projects
