At Netlify, we’re building a platform to empower digital designers and developers to build better, more elaborate web projects than ever before. We’re aiming to change the landscape of modern web development. Netlify currently serves more than 2,000,000 developers worldwide.
Netlify is a diverse group of incredible talent from all over the world. We’re ~40% woman or non-binary, and are composed of 29 different nationalities.
Our most recent fundraise was $63M in Series C to bring forward the next generation of tooling for a more accessible web. This latest round brings Netlify’s funding raised in total to $107M to date. Among our investors are Andreessen Horowitz, Kleiner Perkins, EQT Ventures as well as the founders of GitHub, Slack, Figma and Yelp.
Netlify is built and maintained by a growing group of almost 200 cross-functional contributors. We're at a key time in our evolution, building our Documentation team to support an increasing rate of product additions and enhancements across our platform development teams. We're looking for a development-savvy Staff Technical Writer to help write and review documentation and craft UI copy. The Docs team is a small but growing group whose members work together and with internal stakeholders to strive for clarity, consistency, and accuracy across the entire customer experience.
We welcome a new hire who will not just expand the Docs team's bandwidth for documenting new product features and improving existing content. We're looking for a team member who enjoys mentoring others and can establish a foundational focus area over time. We're eager to meet people who are interested in increasing the impact and reach of the team by following their passions and drawing on their particular experience. For example, we could imagine our new Staff Technical Writer expanding our data analysis to help shape the docs roadmap / measure success or working closely with our backend team to level up our API documentation.
At Netlify, we aim to create a company culture of empowerment where the best idea can come from anywhere. We believe that empowered and engaged team members do the best work. We don’t want you to work too hard (burnout is real), but we also want to encourage you to grow (impostor syndrome is also real) - and we’ll help you do that!
