Technical Writer

Facebook's mission is to give people the power to share, and make the world more open and connected. Through our growing family of apps and services, we're building a different kind of company that helps billions of people around the world connect and share what matters most to them. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to make the world more open and accessible. Connecting the world takes every one of us—and we're just getting started.

As one of our fantastic technical writers, you will be part of a team responsible for the quality, discoverability and accuracy of the content, for both internal and external technologies. You will do hands-on research and obtain necessary technical content from subject matter experts while translating it into clear, concise, structured documentation. This means sometimes you are documenting something yourself, sometimes you are editing contributed content from someone else, and other times you are fixing and reorganizing existing documentation. In addition, you may also have opportunities to do some coding and project management for various documentation requests.

  • Navigate through multiple platforms such as web, iOS, and Android.
  • Create and maintain code sample fragments and sample apps.

Minimum Qualifications

  • BA/BS degree in computer science, technical writing, physics, mathematics, or chemistry or equivalent experience.
  • 3+ years experience in writing, technical documentation, and/or developer outreach for a developer audience.
  • 2+ years experience with a programming language such as C++, C#, Java, PHP, Python, Objective-C, etc.
  • Experience writing, proofreading and editing.
  • The ability to produce and organize content with a logical flow.
  • Experience with authoring tools such as XML, HTML, Markdown, Adobe Photoshop, and Illustrator.
  • Experience programming, using the command-line, trying out user interfaces, and working with prototype software or hardware in test environments.
