Segment.io, Inc.

Segment is a customer data platform (CDP) that helps you collect, clean, and activate your customer data.

Overview: 

  At Segment, we believe companies should be able to send their data wherever they want, whenever they want, with no fuss. Unfortunately, most product managers, analysts, and marketers spend too much time searching for the data they need, while engineers are stuck integrating the tools marketing teams want to use. Segment standardizes and streamlines data infrastructure with a single platform that collects, unifies, and sends data to hundreds of business tools with the flip of a switch. That way, our customers can focus on building amazing products and personalized messages for their customers, letting us take care of the complexities of processing their customer data reliably and securely at scale. We’re helping power 20,000 businesses with good, clean, consistent data, and we need your help to push our product and ecosystem into the next era.    In this role, you’ll help drive forward Segment’s efforts toward developer and user education, crafting thoughtful, accurate, and detailed documentation to help both new and existing users. You’ll help expand Segment’s documentation efforts by collaborating with Product Managers, Designers, and Engineers, while researching new and interesting ways to present content to our users.      

Who we’re looking for:

  • You have a very strong attention to detail
  • You’re a team player, who can participate in and lead peer reviews of documentation
  • You can write for a variety of audiences, from engineers to business-focused end users
  • You have a curiosity that allows you to both go deep on a specific subject, and to cover a broad subject area
  • You can absorb, distill, and incorporate feedback from users, support, and cross-functional partners
  • You find enjoyment in both teaching and learning from others
   

Projects you could work on:

  • Documentation for an entire product area; ensuring new content is produced on time, and that existing content stays up-to-date
  • Drive partner onboarding into our documentation environment
  • Review and edit doc submissions from a small (but growing!) group of external contributors
  • Help develop and drive adoption of the next generation of documentation tools at Segment
   

Requirements:

  • Excellent written and oral communication skills.
  • Experience working remotely with a dispersed team
  • 3+ years writing documentation for SaaS software products
  • Proficient writing in Markdown
  • Experience using Git workflows
  • Basic working knowledge of HTML / CSS
  • Ability to be flexible and adapt to timelines as they change
  • Experience working cross-functionally with Product, Design, Engineering, and Support.
   

Bonus points:

  • Familiarity with static site builders (Jekyll and similar) and Liquid template language
  • Web development experience
  • Familiarity with the docs-as-code methodology
        If you got to this point, we hope you're feeling excited about the job description you just read. Even if you don't feel that you meet every single requirement, we still encourage you to apply. We're eager to meet people that believe in Segment’s mission and can contribute to our team in a variety of ways – not just candidates who check all the boxes.   Segment is an equal opportunity employer. We believe that everyone should receive equal consideration and treatment. Recruitment, hiring, placements, transfers, and promotions will happen based on qualifications for the positions being filled regardless of sex, gender identity, race, religious creed, color, national origin ancestry, age, physical disability, pregnancy, mental disability, or medical condition.
