At Prisma, we are building the data layer for modern applications. If you are fascinated by the leading-edge architecture and technology used in today’s data-intensive, highly scalable software systems, with distributed graph data on a massive scale, but you want the energy, challenges, and freedom that come with working in a small startup, then a job at Prisma might be for you.
With funding from top-tier investors Amplify Partners and Kleiner Perkins, we are a small distributed team working on making the advanced data infrastructure developed at large tech companies accessible to all application developers around the world. Our hard work is paying off, with adoption and implementation of Prisma by some of the most successful and interesting companies out there today, and the fun is just beginning!
We are focused on bottom-up adoption, and most of our software is open-source. We have a vibrant community on Slack and Github - with over 40,000 members on Slack - where we regularly engage with the Prisma community.
We are seeking a technical writer who loves new technology and stays curious about how things work, someone who works best by getting their fingers on the product. Someone who works holistically across teams to deeply understand, fully document, and teach other developers how to use Prisma to build amazing applications with data layer integrations for all database types and environments.
As a Senior Technical Writer, you will work closely with the Documentation Lead and develop content that developers will use to learn and make the most out of Prisma.
You will do that by acting as a spokesperson and champion for our Documentation, organizing our process, contributing and maintaining our style guide, and collaborating with other Technical Writers on the team to support them.
Work will vary across documenting features, writing guides about approaches to access databases effectively to solve specific problems using Prisma, or coming up with code examples that illustrate how developers can be more successful in building their applications.
You will also collaborate with Product Managers, Product Designers, Developer Advocates, and Engineers to build an understanding of the initiatives we're pursuing, and the kind of learning materials which would make them more impactful.
You will be able to work fully remotely, using GitHub and Markdown extensively as writing and collaboration tools.
We believe that the right person would have the following:
The following would also be super helpful:
You are likely to be a great fit for the team if you:
...have an ownership mindset. As part of a small team, you'll have an outsize impact on decisions and the way things are executed.
...stay nimble. As a growing startup, the team and strategy evolve quickly. Be ready to re-calibrate often and stay flexible.
...be kind and collaborative. Come in ready to share your ideas and listen to feedback.
We are a remote-first organization with an office based in Berlin, Germany. Whether you work remotely, or from the office in Berlin is entirely up to you! We offer generous relocation assistance if you prefer the latter.
