Technical Writer

Lending Club (NYSE: LC) opened in 2007 with one simple mission: create a more efficient, transparent and customer-friendly alternative to the traditional banking system that offers creditworthy borrowers lower interest rates and investors better returns. Today, we're the world's largest online credit marketplace, and we're radically changing the way lending operates. We're proud of the recognition we've received, including being named a World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer, a CNBC Disruptor 50, and one of The World's 10 Most Innovative Companies in Finance by Fast Company. We're conveniently located in downtown San Francisco, California.

As a Technical Writer at Lending Club, you'll take complex financial and technical concepts and communicate them clearly as standard operating procedures (SOPs), policies, release announcements, and customer communications. You will gather information on business processes and develop documentation in our team's collaboration software, Confluence. Juggling multiple projects and driving their successful and timely completion is your forte. You'll work across teams to collect information, distill and clarify this information, and produce complete documentation that is both easy to follow and easy to use for our partners and employees. You welcome technical challenges; you strive to develop industry-leading deliverables that promote a great user experience. Furthermore, as an individual contributor on our small, dynamic team you will:

  • Evaluate existing business processes and translate into accurate, consistent, and concise documentation that follows a logical flow
  • Quickly learn, understand, and communicate complex concepts to internal and external audiences
  • Plan, write, edit, and improve content, including SOPs, policies, and direct customer emails from conceptual stage to deployment, and then ongoing maintenance
  • Analyze existing and new content for reuse and single-source opportunities
  • Coordinate and lead meetings with subject matter experts (SMEs) and key business partners
  • Collaborate with business owners, business analysts, product managers, legal, and compliance
  • Share your work and provide feedback to colleagues
