Anaplan is looking for an exceptional Content Specialist to join the Technical Content Team in San Francisco. 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.

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.
In addition, 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.
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.
