description du poste

Technical writers communicate complex information clearly, concisely and accurately, and without relying on jargon. As a technical writer, your role involves tasks such as writing conceptual overviews and procedures, reading and writing example code, or updating help center queries and FAQs. They are a key link between engineers, marketing associates, developer advocates, as well as all the external users, tying together many vital but disparate parts of the ecosystem. As a Technical Writer for the Shopping Team you'll contribute to one of several websites that educate retailers about new product features, troubleshooting options and technologies, in particular for retailers in France. You'll work with Program Managers, Engineers, Product Managers and other Technical Writers, to determine which new features need documentation, then create document plans, draft new user guides, and resolve issues with existing documentation to keep it up to date.


  • Write, publish and maintain high-quality help content and user interface (UI) messaging for a technical product used by online retailers in French.
  • Write documents for internal users and processes.
  • Edit, clarify, and proofread documents written by others.
  • Manage the production and publishing of documentation.
  • Interview engineers, product managers and technical account managers to compile information.
  • Collaborate with engineers, product managers, developer relations and UX designers.


  • Native French speaker.
  • BA degree in French, Journalism, Technical Writing, a related field or equivalent practical experience.
  • 2 years of relevant experience, such as technical writing, product documentation, or online publishing including experience with writing technical customer-facing materials.
