Technical Writer (API Documentation, Waku)

We are enabling Ethereum builders to create new projects with a fully decentralized architecture, think dApp to Wallet notifications, NFT marketplaces, censorship-resistant chat, layer-2 decentralization and more.

From early on, we have released Waku libraries and pushed for developer adoption with a basic set of documentation and materials. Now, that the Waku is maturing, we are looking for a tech writer to improve the quality of existing documentation, consolidate the various library documentation in a centralized and well organized website and finally, write more guides and tutorials to ensure that any developer wishing to use Waku can do so with ease.

Key responsibilities:

  • Write comprehensive, clear, and well-structured documentation; this includes API (JavaScript, Golang libraries) and infrastructure (run a node) documentation.
  • Review and update technical documentation articles. Collaborate with SMEs to consolidate/disperse documentation and guides into a single and unified structure.
  • Improve and document the planning, writing, reviewing, and publishing workflows in the documentation process.
  • Contributing to the writing style guide and applying the writing rules consistently.
  • Bring new and innovative approaches to improve and simplify the Waku documentation process.

You ideally will have:

  • Experience in, and passion for, blockchain technology.
  • A strong alignment to our principles:
  • Strong command of the English language
  • At least 3 years of proven experience writing technical documentation for software products, including API & infrastructure documentation. Writing samples will be requested.
  • Proficient use of Markdown, command-line git, and GitHub.
  • Ability to depict complex processes in easy-to-read workflows and diagrams.
  • Passion for quality and content design. Ability to go beyond writing content by understanding how to structure this content to improve user experience.
  • Happy to iterate and collaborate: draft, ask, test, fail, and improve.

Bonus points:

  • Comfortable working remotely and asynchronously
  • Experience working for an open source organization.
  • A strong interest in blockchain technology and Ethereum.
  • Strong interest in information design and information architecture.
  • Knowledge of TypeDoc, JavaScript, Go, shell and Nim.
  • Experience working with and implementing static site generators (Docusaurus, Material for MkDocs, etc.)
  • Experience using design tools to create workflows and diagrams.
