We’re looking for someone to drive product adoption by communicating how to use our sophisticated programmatic advertising platform. Everyone says you’re a good technical writer – and you have the solid track record to prove it -- but you’re so much more than that. You are ready to take ownership of part of a key communications channel. You can write solid marketing copy on technical topics. You might not be an expert when you start in on a project, but you work effectively with those who are, and soon earn their respect and trust. You have an entrepreneurial spirit, can run with a request, and deliver polished results autonomously. You take complex technical information, distill it down to essential concepts, and create multimedia content that gives people an “aha” moment. You have a keen eye for the small things that make the good great and are delighted when you help the team say it better.
