Currently, Vision Technology is seeking a Technical Writer to join our team.

  • Consult directly with the customer, SSA, to create and maintain technical documentation. This includes meeting minutes, diagrams, and other technical documents as assigned.
  • Perform other administrative tasks, including interview scheduling for the team, and other tasks as assigned.
  • The person filling this role will also need to:
  • Be intuitive, resourceful and comfortable completing assignments on your own, with little need for guidance/oversight. You will also need to be comfortable helping others complete their assignments.
  • Be comfortable with varying levels of "busyness"- sometimes there will be multiple things assigned all at once that are due the same day, and sometimes things will be slow. You'll need to be comfortable with both scenarios.

  • Ability to translate the technical work we do into creative language. If technical staff have ideas that can be turned into a white paper, the candidate should be able to recognize that, draw out those ideas, and capture them eloquently.
  • Strong leadership qualities, with the ability to delegate tasks and manage time off for all technical writers on the team.
  • Advanced skills in Microsoft Word
  • Intermediate skills in Visio and Excel, including familiarity with formulas and pivot tables.
