Description

Symbiont is building a blockchain platform for mission-critical financial markets. Helping users understand this highly technical piece of software is a challenge that demands people that can take the detailed and nuanced technical attributes of our system and distill them down to conceptual and task-based documentation that a system administrator or developer can understand and use.

This is Symbiont’s first hire specifically for technical writing skills, so we expect a leader who can help define and refine processes and can work well in an unstructured environment. You’ll be working closely with members of Symbiont’s team skilled in business analysis, product management, development, and quality assurance.
