MySQL documentation writer for Connectors and Cluster wanted!

(No, this is not a duplicate of the previous blog post I wrote. It's for another position!)

As MySQL is thriving and growing, we're looking for an experienced technical writer located in the UK or Ireland to join the MySQL documentation team.

For this job, we need the best and most dedicated people around. You will be part of a geographically distributed documentation team responsible for the technical documentation of all MySQL products. Team members are expected to work independently, requiring discipline and excellent time-management skills as well as the technical facilities and experience to communicate across the Internet.

Candidates should be prepared to work intensively with our engineers and support personnel. The overall team is highly distributed across different geographies and time zones. Our source format is DocBook XML. We're not just writing documentation, but also handling publication. This means you should be familiar with DocBook, and willing to learn our publication infrastructure.

Your areas of responsibility would initially be MySQL Connectors, particularly Connector/NET, and MySQL Cluster connectors and APIs. This means you should be familiar with MySQL in general, with the .NET framework, and preferably also with the MySQL Cluster. A MySQL certification will be considered an advantage.

Other qualifications you should have:

  • Native English speaker
  • 5 or more years previous experience in writing software documentation
  • Familiarity with distributed working environments and versioning systems such as SVN
  • Comfortable with working on multiple operating systems, particularly Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux
  • Ability to administer own workstations and test environment
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
  • Ability to provide (online) samples of your work, e.g. books or articles
If you're interested, contact me under stefan.hinz@oracle.com.

About

mysqlf is a common typo on the #docs IRC channel of the MySQL documentation team. It shows a high (some might say, dangerous) degree of identification with MySQL. Trying to pronounce it will probably result in tongue injuries.
