Job Description

We are Kaleyra!


If you’ve used Uber, Amazon, Ola, Swiggy, Practo, or Flipkart, you’ve already experienced Kaleyra! Are you wondering how? When you want to connect over call with your driver or delivery executive without sharing your contact number. When you get SMS notifications about your order getting shipped, that appointment being booked, or OTPs. When you want to reach customer care with just a tap in the app.


Worldwide, over 3,000 companies, including Fortune 500 brands such as MasterCard, Hyundai, and Amazon, use Kaleyra’s communication solutions to talk to their customers.

Our vision: To be the world’s most Trusted, Secure and Innovative communication platform to enable real-time conversations between brands and their users.


We are a diverse team of 250+ individuals from different parts of the world working hard (and playing hard) to empower businesses to be there for their customers across various communication channels, devices, and geographies. Our fast-growing team is spread across 12 locations around the globe, including Italy, India, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, the United States, and Singapore.


Join us as we create history and transform the way brands connect with their users!

 

We are on the look-out to hire an experienced technical content specialist to help create the right experience for developers to easily use our technology. This would mean creating, maintaining and revamping technical documents and manuals to explain complex information in a clear and concise way.

 

We love team players who are proactive and creative self-starters too. Most importantly, you should be willing to learn and unlearn. If this sounds like you, we invite you to apply with your LinkedIn profile, and be sure to include any links to published documents you’ve already created. We’d love to see your skills at play.

 

In this role, you will:

 

  • Recommend best tools for API documentation

  • Work with internal teams to obtain an in-depth understanding of the product and the documentation requirements

  • Maintain existing documentation to stay current with feature updates and bug fixes 

  • Analyze existing content and customer/developer requirements to identify gaps and opportunities, with a focus on repurposing content and single-source publishing

  • Develop, write and deliver high-quality comprehensive documentation appropriate for the intended audience. Copy must be comprehensible, consistent, well-punctuated, and grammatically and lexically correct.

  • Develop video user guides and tutorials as per product and documentation requirements 

  • Ensure all-around consistency in content style, fonts, images and tone

  • Coordinate with other content specialists and marketing teammates across continents to ensure a unified written and visual voice for Kaleyra (the brand guidelines may help you here.)

  • Optimize content for search engines to locate material easily (implement basic SEO)

  • Keep up with best practices and trends for API documentation, user guides and other technical documents

 

What will help you succeed in this role:


  • 3+ years of proven work experience in technical content creation and management

  • Hands-on experience with tools for document management, ticket management, code repositories, API testing and support centers (e.g. ReadMe, Confluence, JIRA, GitHub, Postman, Freshdesk, etc)

  • Hands-on experience with screen capture, recording, audio and video editing tools (e.g. SnagIt, LightShot, Audacity, Premiere, etc)

  • Excellent writing and editing skills in English

  • An ability to quickly grasp complex technical concepts and make them easily understandable in an appropriate format (text, pictures and/or video). You must be a master of the art of explanation.

  • An ability to think like a developer

  • An ability to plan in advance and execute with precision to meet deadlines

  • An eye for detail, tons of motivation, and a thirst to unlearn, learn and improve

  • A proactive and results-based approach to taking up and accomplishing goals

  • The ability to work well with other stakeholders and team members

  • Experience collaborating with teams using G-Suite and Asana/Trello

  • Experience doing research using multiple sources: primary, secondary or tertiary

  • Bachelor’s degree in any field, preferably with a developer background.
