Senior Content Specialist
London, United Kingdom
Anaplan is looking for an exceptional Content Specialist to join the Technical Content Team in York. We’re in a growth phase at the moment and we’re looking for writer/technologists who are smart, adaptable, keen to learn, and across all the latest thinking in content development. We’re part of Software Engineering, so we’d prefer you to have some experience with the Agile process and scrum tools such as Jira and Confluence (but read on, it’s not a show stopper, if you don'
Traditionally, this might have been called a technical writing role. It is. But it’s so much more than that. Primarily, we’re looking for adaptable people who can understand technical concepts and systems quickly and then write quality copy, following our style guidelines. That copy will be based on standard technical writing principles for writing user documentation with a friendly, conversational style. We need you to write, write, write. And love doing it.
We’re looking for people with an interest in content itself. How it’s written, how it’s structured, and how it’s delivered in an omnichannel environment. We’ll be looking to you to contribute ideas and be engaged with the latest thinking in the area to improve the way we write and deliver content and communicate accurately with our readers.
In addition, we need editing skills. Someone who is not intimidated by technical subjects! Who can uphold internal standards — banish passive text, dangling participles, and superlatives in the process.
An empathetic editor who can review content for accuracy, readability, and house style. Always ensure that, if necessary, complex technical information is reworded in an engaging and readable format — without compromising accuracy or technical meaning!
The quality of our content isn’t as good as we want it to be so we’re implementing a component content management system to provide structure for the development of all our content. We’re aiming high and we need help on the journey.
We’re looking for curious, dynamic individuals who are really engaged with writing and communicating in all its forms. What we’re also looking for is cultural fit. It’s important that you can work within our values of openness, authenticity, inclusivity, creativity, and collaboration. So, you might not tick all the boxes, but if you’re open and enthusiastic, and can demonstrate industry smarts, you might be able to convince us to take you on the journey with us.
We expect you to be flexible: this list of responsiblities isn’t exhaustive and should be seen as indicative of what we’ll ask you to do.
