Technical Content Writer

We are looking for an enthusiastic, part-time (with an opportunity to go full-time) Technical Content Writer to join our team to help us cultivate product led growth by extending oak9’s brand recognition and advancing our product documentation to enhance the self-service experience. This is a role for someone who has a strong focus on building relationships with different teams to understand the infrastructure and processes at both technical and business levels. You are an expert at translating complex into simple, compelling, informative content and specifically know how to reach and engage the developer market.


The industry:

As more companies move key parts of their business to the cloud, its critical to ensure that data and information are secure. Two functions that play a key role are developers and security teams. To date, innovation has been focused on development teams – who can now do more, faster. The security teams are not able to keep up and that creates risk for the organization.

The company:

The oak9 platform analyzes infrastructure as code and builds security into cloud native applications so they are secure and compliant by design.

We are passionate about removing the friction between development and security so businesses can achieve velocity & agility without compromising on security.

We’re looking for smart and motivated individuals to join our growing team. You will be an integral part of oak9’s success, and this is a unique opportunity to accelerate your career in a fast-paced environment with a team full of passionate, committed people who are excited to transform how security integrates into modern development.

You’ll have the opportunity to work with a top-tier leadership team to reshape the security landscape.  We are growing fast and are looking for talented individuals to help in our mission.
