Technical Writer – Contract or Permanent position
Location: Vancouver office
Accepting applications, immediate opening - How to apply
This dynamic, growing organization is currently recruiting for a Technical Writer. We are looking to grow our team with people who share our energy and enthusiasm for creating the best experience for our customers.
iFinance Canada Inc. is a national consumer financing company that’s offered an array of financing to Canadians since 1996.
We are looking for a talented technical writer to develop and produce high-quality developer, application administrator and power user documentation for a CRM/Financial Lending application. The scope of work is expected to include existing functionality, developed across 20 years, as well as future updates. The Technical Writer will work closely with the original Developer initially to build the core documentation upon which future development and administrative decisions will be made. 70+ users rely on this application for the bulk of their workflow and productivity. Some tasks are done daily (by the minute, even!) others are done monthly, quarterly or annually.
This documentation will be mission critical for iFinance. For you, this is an opportunity to design, build and create core documentation for a national consumer finance company. Power users will rely on this documentation for less frequently used functions. Administrators and Management will rely on this documentation for decision-making to ensure continuity in meeting corporate obligations when changes are made, and to decide upon future development investments. New developers will heavily rely on this documentation for just about everything.
We prefer a permanent position but are open to a 6-month recurring contract for a great talent that may prefer a contract.
