job summary:

Project Overview

As a technical writer for Google, you'll contribute to one of several externally-facing documentation that educate developers about new tools and technologies for integrating with Google?s Ads APIs. You'll work with other tech writers and engineers to determine which new developer features need documentation. You'll work independently to make changes to the online documentation and use cases and will also spend time resolving issues with existing documentation to keep it up-to-date.

You might have a background as a developer and write documentation on the side, or you're a seasoned communicator with basic level experience in one of the programming languages such as Java, Python, C++ or PHP or have a strong background with HTML, Linux and JavaScript. One thing for certain: you are passionate about helping developers build amazing things.
