About the role

Hey šŸ‘‹, we are looking for a member to join our team. Are you interested?

About Webiny

Webiny is a company with a mission to empower developers to create applications and websites on top of the serverless infrastructure. We are an open-source business and our users are developers like us. Our main belief is that serverless is the future of development and if you think the same, please read on.

We are a VC-backed company (Microsoft, Samsung, YCombinator, Episode 1, ...) in a very hot space. The serverless market is about to grow 5x in the next 5 years. More and more companies are turning to serverless to shorten their development lifecycles, remove scaling problems, and reduce their infrastructure cost.

Webiny wants to help them by providing processes, tools, and ready-made apps. Our goal is to drive the adoption of serverless.

About the Role

We are seeking a Technical Content Writer person. It's a new role in our company and you will have the full freedom to shape it and set its path.

For this role, we're looking for an ambitious and creative person. Someone who uses words masterfully and can break down complex multi-step topics into digestible content pieces. Someone who enjoys learning new technologies, documenting their journey along the way, and passing on that knowledge to others.

Your primary responsibility will be to create content pieces for our blog as well as 3rd party portals to educate the audience of the potential use-cases of our product and guide them via tutorials on how to go from a blank project to a working application.

In this role, you are expected to have regular communication with other team members, such as engineering, devrel, marketing, but also take part in public discussion on our community slack that features over 1,000 developers and identify needs for new potential content pieces.

Your responsibilities:

šŸš€ create new content at a regular cadence (video, blog, tutorials, documentation, ...) šŸ’¬ discuss new topics and ideas with the rest of the team šŸ—ļø craft sample applications, libraries, and tooling šŸŒŽ engage with the community (GitHub, Slack, different forums and platforms) šŸ§­ define a plan and measure your progress on a set of agreed KPIs

What we look for from you:

Excellent writing skills Ability to write code and sample applications Good level of understanding concepts and technologies like REST API, GraphQL, React, NodeJs Experience in using cloud technologies like AWS or Azure Great at communicating and listening for feedback Great at explaining how things work and teaching people If you have the right drive and attitude and want to build your career in this space, but don't necessarily tick all the boxes above, or want to transition from your current role, please apply, we would still love to talk to you. All roles at Webiny come with šŸ’µ Competitive salary

We pay competitive market rates, based on your location and experience.

šŸŒ Flexible & remote work

We are a remote team, you can work from home or any other location you choose. All you need is an internet connection.

šŸ’» Equipment

We pay for any equipment you need, be that software or hardware.

šŸ“š Ā£1000 personal development budget

Each year you get up to Ā£1000 to spend on any books, conferences or training you wish to attend.

šŸ Unlimited vacation

We offer an unlimited paid time off, and require you to take a minimum of 15 days off (paid) each year, alongside any public holidays.

šŸ“ˆ Stock options

We want our success to be your success. Each team member gets a certain number of stock options assigned that vest over a period of time.

šŸ¼ Family leave

Starting a family is an important step in everyone's life. We want our employees to enjoy those moments without worrying about their job. We are offering all new parents (includes maternity, paternity, and adoption) 12 weeks of fully paid leave. This is available if you've been with Webiny for 12 months or more.

šŸ„ Flexible workdays for new parents

Besides the family leave, if you are a new parent (been a parent for less than 1 year), you can choose to work for 3 or 4 days a week, instead of full-time, for the next 6 months for a pro-rata salary.

  3. We respect and treat others the same way we want to be treated.

  4. Each one of us has a voice and is not afraid to speak their mind.

  8. We deeply care about the quality of our work.
