Posted on Thursday, May 30, 2024
Fluent Commerce is a rapidly growing business that heavily invests in enablement and learning to scale self-service across the partner network and its broad customer base. It’s an exciting time to join the business!

We are looking for a hands-on, self-driven individual to address content gaps, extract valuable information from SMEs, and create concise, structured, and consistent documentation.

If you have a passion for writing, whether through a blog or an open-source project, share it with us! We are interested in seeing how you value content in your work and provide value to your audience.

Here are some examples of what we think great documentation looks like:
We recently re-platformed our documentation from markdown to a Headless CMS with async content workflows and pre-defined structured content templates. These templates make it easy to adhere to structure and enable high content reuse. We are getting good async collaboration from key SMEs, but driving this engagement and continuously improving existing content are things we want to improve.
