Technical Writer

We're solving EDI

At Stedi, we’re rebuilding the technological backbone of the B2B economy. Trillions of dollars flow annually through a global network of commerce via an archaic framework called EDI, but there hasn’t been a major new EDI platform in decades (you can read more about EDI here).

We make software for developers to help them build modern EDI systems. Our goal is to make software so great that all the world’s business transactions run on our rails – and users won’t know or care, because it works exactly as expected.

We have lightning in a bottle: 70+ engineers and designers working across 7 time zones in 17 countries, shipping products 24 hours a day, 6 days a week; a lean business team to support the company’s infrastructure; passion for eliminating toil and automating what we can; a culture of writing; $71 million in funding from investors like Stripe, Addition, USV, and First Round Capital.

The team you'll work on

Our documentation is part of our product. Stedi provides a cloud platform that allows developers to build business-to-business integrations. Our customers are developers who use our web APIs and they should be able to do so without our help. Well, not completely without our help: they have our documentation. That’s what our team provides: an excellent cloud platform with excellent documentation.

We are looking for a technical writer who wants to explore all that documentation can be, who enjoys creative collaboration, and who doesn’t shy away from a challenge. If this is you, Stedi will be the best job you’ll ever have.

What you'll do

You will write documentation that means as much to us as the software our developers write. Documentation is part of our product and we see writing as one of the most important things we do. Whether writing for our blog, drafting API references, or editing content for others, we value your work just as much as that of our software developers. So, you get paid just as much as our software developers.

You will never write alone. We have learned that we do our best work if we work together. The writer writes a draft, the editor gives feedback on it. Same for the next draft; repeat until done. How you write is up to you, because everyone is different, but one part of the writing process is the same for all of us: you never write alone.

You will be able to think outside the box and help bring the words to life. When your words are done, you’ll have the support to help enrich them with diagrams, illustrations, and interactive widgets.

Who you are

You have a desire to explore all that documentation can be. Whether your background is in engineering, interactive design, or visual design, you understand that writing has as great of an impact on the adoption of technology as the code behind it.

You have extensive experience with technical writing and editing. You’re able to understand complex technologies and distill them into easy-to-understand documentation and education materials to drive the adoption of our products.

You want to create and execute your own work. You thrive in fast-paced environments and are comfortable with not knowing the answer to something. You are willing to roll up your sleeves no matter what the challenge is.

You enjoy working cross-functionally and helping others become better writers. You’ll help drive the writing discipline at Stedi forward through editing and collaborating with engineers, designers, and the business team.

At Stedi, we're looking for people who are deeply curious and aligned to our ways of working. You're encouraged to apply even if your experience doesn't perfectly match the job description. We are an equal opportunity employer and do not discriminate on the basis of any status protected under federal, state, or local law.
