About the Role

To achieve this we have built a team of smart and high-energy people that are passionate about genuinely helping people to get their problems solved.

We are looking for a Technical Writer who can create and manage high quality content targeted to a variety of audiences including developers, product managers, and marketers. Content topics range from platform-specific technical implementation guides to product reference guides to analytics best practices. Our team is ground zero for our product and customer’s DNA.

  • Interact with Product Managers, Product Engineers, and SMEs on content for new product releases
  • Understand and define all facets of the Mixpanel customer journey, and identify key areas of strategic importance for targeted content
  • Be a leader on self-serve best practices with a strong interest in training other teams
  • Define content structure, taxonomy, and style
  • Collaborate on overall self-serve strategy
  • Ensure Mixpanel goes above and beyond to consistently deliver a delightful support experience

What We Are Looking For

  • 3+ years as a technical writer for a technical, software solution
  • Stellar written and verbal communication skills
  • Proven ability to understand and explain details of a technical software solution to both technical and non-technical audiences alike
  • Flexibility to work with a range of knowledge management platforms as well as version software tools like git
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced, dynamic environment based on the needs of internal teams and Mixpanel customers
  • Track record of building and maintaining strong working relationships with Product Managers and Product Engineers

Bonus Points

  • Experience with REST APIs

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

Reasonable Accommodation Notice

Please tell us if you require a reasonable accommodation to apply for a job or to perform your job. Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
