The Bank is doing a giant transformation project in Capital Markets on Trading systems. They are reimaging this complex bunch of trading systems to be put on the cloud. The system has enormous complexity.
The Tech Writer will create Technical Documentation for an audience of Architects, Developers, Engineers and production people an audience of programmers to enable the system to be put on the cloud. The Tech writer does not need to know Cloud.
The tech writer must have Wall Street Bank or Asset Management or Brokerage system experience, (may consider big systems experience at a major name brand tech firm such as Google / Facebook / Amazon_as a tech writer or as an ex-developer or ex architect.
Be a tech writer who can write for a technical audience a primary skills set (user guides for end users is not what we are looking for here, if someone mostly writes for programmers that is what we want, its ok if they have a little user guide experience.)
Be able to look at the legacy documentation and go through it to update it. This is the main job and its a big job.
The final documentation will be put on their internal developer site. Experience / old or current with any programming language is helpful, not required. Knowledge of GIT is useful, as is HTML/ CSS (for the documentation on the internal developer site)
Understanding System networking and data production / IT security is helpful, but not required.
Be willing to read and sift through prior documentation and update it and figure out how to show that its updated, you may come up with a system that logs the updates.
