The AWS Documentation team is looking for a technical writer to document Amazon FinSpace, a data management and analytics service purpose-built for the financial services industry (FSI). Customers use FinSpace to collect and catalog data by relevant business concepts such as asset class, risk classification, or geographic region. From there, FinSpace makes it easy to discover and share data in accordance with compliance requirements. Customers define data access policies in one place and FinSpace enforces them, while keeping audit logs to allow for compliance and activity reporting. FinSpace also includes a library of 100+ functions, like time bars and Bollinger bands, to help prepare data for analysis.

We're looking for a technical writer who can work directly with development teams in a cross-functional, distributed environment. You'll need a technical background that enables you to work effectively with software development engineers, product managers, and technical program managers. In addition, you'll need excellent communication skills, and a demonstrated ability to deliver high-quality technical publications.

Our team also puts a high value on work-life balance. Striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success here, which is why we aren’t focused on how many hours you spend at work or online. Instead, we’re happy to offer a flexible schedule so you can have a more productive and well-balanced life—both in and outside of work.

The AWS Documentation team writes and provides support for a diverse audience consisting of developers, DevOps professionals, IT professionals, technical program managers, and scientists. On behalf of our customers, we do much more than just write the docs. We innovate, we research, we learn, and we experiment. We collaborate with product managers to understand our customers’ needs. We partner with software developers to learn the inner workings of AWS services so that we can influence design and the customer experience. We know that what we do makes a difference in the successful adoption and implementation of AWS services.

We have a formal mentor program so you can find a mentor that works best for you, based on factors such as location, job family, and job level. In addition to formal mentors, we work and train together so that we are always learning from one another, and we celebrate and support the career progression of our team members.

Here at AWS, we embrace and learn from our similarities as well as our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion, and we welcome teammates from an array of backgrounds and life experiences. We offer the opportunity to belong, connect, and contribute as members of a growing number of active affinity groups and employee resource groups.
