Documentation Engineer

(Seattle, WA)

Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to share, and make the world more open and connected. Through our growing family of apps and services, we’re building a different kind of company that helps billions of people around the world connect and share what matters most to them. Whether we’re creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to make the world more open and accessible. Connecting the world takes every one of us—and we’re just getting started.

As one of our fantastic technical content editors, you will be part of the team responsible for quality, discoverability and accuracy of the content on developers.facebook.com.

Basically you will need to be a jack of all trades – writing, structuring content, coding, some light project management, and lots of communication. If you’re adventurous, you might even get to hack a little bit on the site itself, adding capabilities you need to manage the content that our team owns. This is a Full Time role for Seattle, WA.
