Development Enablement Engineer – Vancouver, Canada

Visier is seeking a detail-oriented, highly articulate, and technically savvy individual to join us as a Technical Writer. You are the rare individual who is both technically literate as well as highly articulate in written and spoken form. You get as much enjoyment from writing clean code as from writing a conciseand clear architecture white paper.

As part of our Development team, you will work alongside our extremely talented and passion-driven developers to gather information from white-boarding sessions, design documents, and source code; and, based on this information, you will create concise internal technical documentation that captures our current and future product architecture as well as our internal
development processes.

If you are a focused, energetic and determined self-starter with a passion for software
development and technical documentation, apply now!
