API Content Writer

Why is our Technical Writing team the next step for you?

Our ecommerce division is booming. As guides in payments, we operate across a range of exciting verticals with merchants globally in: Digital Content, Global Retail, Airlines, Regulated Gambling and Travel. With the range of merchants we work with we'd like to deliver a first class experience for the development teams our technical writers support in all areas.

We want developers to recognise our brand and for those who are not familiar with it, to communicate a good vibe and be seen as the company that "has it all" in terms of APIs, documentation and a developer focused social media presence and developer community that you'll help to establish. Through the delivery of new portal services, tooling and the documentation of APIs and services in a modern, consistent way.

What will make you the right fit for the team?

As technical writer you'll contribute to and build Worldpays Developer Community. Being key to the definition of our new community hub and developer assets you'll have a passion for writing web content, with the demonstrable ability to craft content that is accessible and usable. We'd like you be able to write documentation about APIs allowing external developers to access our applications and gateways, so you'll need to have a good understanding of software development and API content but don't need to be an expert.

You'll enjoy managing relationships with stakeholders in a complex environment. And be a phenomenal communicator with external teams both through great written content and rich media to aid users in there Worldpay journey.

We would like you to have worked with authoring tools such as Madcap Flare as well as content publishing systems. You can author in Markdown and have basic development knowledge in HTML, CSS, Javascript/JSON or XML.

This would also be a great opportunity for a graduate coming from a technical IT or Computer Science background with an interest in persuing a creative career outside of the typical engineering path.
