About Showpad

At Showpad, personalities and cultures connect across oceans to create something extraordinary. As a top 10 software company in the Inc. 5,000 Europe list, Showpad is changing the game when it comes to sales enablement. Our employees create the engagement and impact that drives our success as we expand globally.

In the morning, were drinking San Francisco cold brew coffee with a side of Portland doughnuts English scones for afternoon tea, and in the evening were toasting success with Belgian tripel Westmalle to a Chicago house tune.

About the position

At Showpad we want to help our customers become the best Showpad users they can be. Our Technical Support team offers a number of self-service support solutions to help our customers do just that. We are looking for a Technical Writer/Self-Service Specialist to join our Technical Support team to create documentation and contribute to our self-service solutions.

As a Technical Writer/Self-Service Specialist, you will focus on our written content, specifically helping to expand it to include best practices and more storytelling elements. We wont ask you to write a Showpad sci-fi novel, but we do believe that washing machine guides would be read more if they were a good detective without plot holes. We cant wait to hear your ideas for how to improve our processes and the self-service experience. We welcome you to a Technical Support team where we help each other outgrow ourselves. Your work allows your support engineer teammates to focus on technical issues, while you literally write the next chapters in the Showpad adventure.

  • Collaborate with your Ghent and Portland-based counterparts to own the Showpad Help Center and Community
  • Create new and update existing training resources
  • Continually improve existing documentation processes and concepts

    • 1-3 years of technical writing experience while working at a software as a service company
    • Proven ability to quickly learn complex products and convert knowledge into usable materials
    • A demonstrated eagerness to help others grow
    • Eagerness to identify opportunities to improve our documentation standards and processes
    • Strong cross-functional coordination and relationship-building skills
    • Prior experience in a customer-facing role
    • HTML, CSS, video creation and/or production, & Google Analytics experience is a plus
