We are looking for a full-time, highly motivated employee who is addicted to technical writing and has a strong interest in emerging technologies, such as cloud computing, PaaS, machine learning, etc. (Support and assistance will be provided on a daily basis, so you’ll have to be able to learn very quickly.)

- The Advanced level of English is preferred, but all applicants with strong IT skills (such as QA or development expertise) will also be considered regardless of language and grammar proficiency.
- Deep knowledge of cloud computing tools would be an advantage but is not a must.
- Ongoing education in an innovative company with numerous corporate events and technical meetups

- Free coffee, tea, cookies, table tennis, parties, outdoors fun, sport activities, and much-much more in a creative and professional environment.
