Codat is a fast-growing technology company headquartered in Clerkenwell, Central London. Our product is a universal API for small business financial data.

We build developer-friendly infrastructure that gives businesses the ability to create their own next- generation products without sacrificing time to market. We are well-funded with a large and growing number of enterprise and fintech clients.

We’ve most recently received a $10 million investment from Index Ventures, a leading global venture capital firm. We were also awarded a £5m grant from the RBS Capability and Innovation Fund last year to help power our growth with a focus on expansion into the US.

What you will be doing

We’re looking for an experienced technical writer to join our team and assist with the writing of our documentation (mostly web-based).  You will have a specific focus on API documentation, business-facing product documentation and support-facing technical documentation.  In addition, you will work closely with our other Technical Writer on creating end-user facing documentation to guide business users through the process of setting up our software.

You will be given the freedom and responsibility to define the direction we take with our documentation to make sure it’s a world-class offering, like our API.

Our values

No matter what we’re doing - whether we’re speaking to customers, partners or to each other - we live by our values.

We believe in delivering useful technology that solves real problems for real businesses. We have a real want to do the stuff that isn’t always “cool” but makes a difference.

We believe that the people in the best teams push and enable each other to excel. We’re united when we have each other’s backs - when something goes wrong, we don’t blame, we work together to fix it. We embrace differences of opinion to end up with better outcomes. We don’t let our egos win.

We believe that an unstoppable drive towards a single, clearly stated goal is the best way to build great things. We are biased towards action - we make informed decisions and then we act. There is no such thing as an impossible problem, just a great challenge to sink our teeth into.
