Two Sigma’s Platform Engineering organization provides the foundational infrastructure that underlies all of Two Sigma’s development efforts. Our teams are responsible for software development lifecycle (SDLC) practices, compute, storage, shared services, and more.

We are looking for a developer-focused technical writer to curate and enhance the documentation set for our tools and frameworks. The initial focus will be on our internal, Git-based versioning system; over time, the work may expand to encompass containerized deployment (Kubernetes), microservice architectures, proprietary storage solutions, and more.

This is a contrat opportunity with a preliminary term of 3 months and the option to renew.


  • ·        Review support channels and work with Platform Engineering developers and Two Sigma’s Engineering Education group to identify documentation needs
  • ·        Develop and implement an organizational structure for internally-facing Git/SDLC process documentation
  • ·        Review and revise existing documentation; create new documents using Markdown and Atlassian Confluence
  • ·        Edit developer-authored pages for accuracy and completeness
  • ·        As appropriate, develop tutorials, examples and other learning materials


  • ·        Passion for explaining technical topics to a varied audience of software engineers
  • ·        Ability to analyze and bring order to large repositories of technical documentation
  • ·        Experience authoring documentation using Markdown and Atlassian Confluence
  • ·        Preference is for a writer who has hands-on experience working with Git, ideally in an enterprise setting. Knowledge of other development and runtime tools (e.g., Bazel, Kubernetes) is an additional plus
