Senior Technical Writer

Write product documentation that enables personas ranging from system integrators and developers to business analysts to effectively build with our software.

What you'll do

You deliver best-in-class developer documentation that enables customers, partners and colleagues to easily and effectively implement and work with Backbase products.

You are part of the R&D Department, which is a multidisciplinary team of experienced and highly skilled Software Developers, Test Engineers, UX Designers, Technical Writers, Product Owners and Support Engineers.
