Who Are We?
IBM Z is the World's most powerful business platform. Today 68% of enterprise production workloads, 80% of structured enterprise data, and 55% of all enterprise transactions, including more than 50% of the back-end transactions generated from mobile enterprise applications, run on IBM Z. We are embarking on an exciting journey to transform the developer experience on IBM Z by embracing disruptive technologies spanning all aspects of development and deployment.
To succeed with our transformation we need the best people running all aspects of our business from Product Positioning through to Design, Development and Support. Do you want to be part of this exciting journey and deliver innovation that matters on the platform that runs the world's core businesses?
Our software product portfolio needs people with a passion for technology and communication: people who can create great technical content that enables clients and inspires them to do even more with our software.
We're looking for an experienced technical content developer - someone who knows how to make technical content clear, concise, and relevant and to deliver it in whatever format best suits the client need. You'll hit the right spot for the user, while working to IBM guidelines and considering scale. You'll work on far more than documentation: our technical content encompasses education materials, magazine-style articles, tutorials, and many more. You will be part of a diverse, agile and design-led development community, working with developers, testers, designers, Marketing, Sales, offering managers, and more.
You'll respect our history and stay on brand, but you'll have the creativity, expertise, and enthusiasm to help take our technical content to the next level. You won't be daunted by scale. We work with over 250 000 active URLs, with millions of views a month from users all around the world, and our user base ranges from new hires with no experience through to the deepest of specialists. You'll have the support of our existing team of content developers, a large network of subject matter experts, and access to users in our clients.
