As a Lead Technical Writer for our Roblox Engineering team, you’ll have a huge impact on scaling internal engineering efficiency, helping Roblox engineers get the most out of their work.

You will:

  • Learn engineering workflows to better understand your audience.
  • Evaluate, assess, and recommend changes to internal engineering processes and tooling to better scale documentation throughput.
  • Write technical documentation for internal engineering infrastructure and systems.
  • Drive better information architecture and documentation practices with cross functional teams such as Engineering, Product, and Design.
  • Grow a small team of writers.

What you need to be successful:

  • Technical aptitude and a great eye for taking complex concepts and distilling them into great documentation.
  • The ability to drive large docsets to completion, where no processes or standards exist.
  • Self-motivated and directed. You’ll be expected to solve problems that people aren’t aware of and challenge others’ ideas where appropriate.
  • A great attitude, team-first sensibilities, and ability to deliver on time.
