Technical Writer

At OpenZeppelin, we have built the world’s leading Open Source library for smart contract development. OpenZeppelin Contracts powers over 3,000 public projects, with over 7,000 stars on Github and maintained by a community of 180+ contributors. We also conduct security audits for the Ethereum Foundation, Coinbase, and other leading organizations in the space.

With the success of our product, our security audits work, and our educational efforts, we have set industry standards for building secure systems in a fast-growing industry, which presents new programming paradigms. We are now excited to offer a development platform that will help the growing number of developers working on top of decentralized protocols build the applications that will reach mass adoption.

What you'll do

As the technical writer, you will be developing technical documentation, guides and much more for our community. Specifically, you will:

  • Write technical documentation for our products including "how to" guides, reference manuals, technical overviews, and more. Clearly communicate complex and technical features by taking a user-centric approach.

  • Contribute to and implement style guides and shared nomenclature across Zeppelin.

  • Help your colleagues at Zeppelin write more and better by providing tips, feedback, and playbooks. Develop content strategies and copywriting for non-product-related initiatives, including efforts targeted at specific audiences or brand positions.

  • You are able to write long- and short-form copy and for a diverse user base with different levels of technical experience.
