BigML is seeking an experienced Technical Writer to help us make Machine Learning beautifully simple for everyone. Our patented Machine Learning technology supports a fast-growing customer base in more than 120 countries.

You will work with our Product Development team that is continually adding new features and functionality crowned by our highly anticipated quarterly releases. Apart from major new algorithms and data manipulation capabilities, we make countless enhancements to existing features to improve on our category leading ease of use, programmability and scalability. All of this creates the challenge of being able to educate our users quickly to maximize the adoption and ongoing engagement with BigML by clearly communicating complex and technical information with your initiative.
As a key member of our Product team, you will have to:
Often collaborate with programmers, product managers and the marketing team to obtain an in-depth understanding of the product and the documentation requirements for timely and complete delivery of such new educational material.
Update our existing corpus of online guides, user manuals and other educational content to avoid any confusion since these digital assets are integral to the experiences of tens of thousands of developers, analysts and scientists solving real life Machine Learning problems at scale.
