✨ An 'Ask Me Anything' for aspiring Content Design leaders with Rachel McConnell Register now

The AWS Documentation team is looking for a technical writer to document AWS Crypto Tools libraries, which help customers do cryptography right. Our client-side encryption libraries help customers protect their sensitive data at its source using secure cryptographic algorithms, envelope encryption, and signing.

Ideally, you have a technical background that enables easy interaction with software developers and a demonstrated ability to deliver high-quality technical documentation. Any experience you have with web services, Linux, XML, and Git is also a bonus. While we don’t expect you to be an expert in these areas, we hope you are excited to learn about them.

AWS is constantly moving and that can be one of the best parts about this job! You will always be learning and growing. But 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. When our community isn't in quarantine, we work from the office most days with the option to work from home on occasion.

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. We host annual and ongoing learning experiences that cover a variety of inclusion and diversity issues, such as our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences.

This position is open to candidates for the Seattle, Portland, and Palo Alto locations, and remote candidates on the US west coast. Candidates near other AWS offices such as Austin, TX and Arlington, VA may also be considered.
