We are looking for a talented technical writer to join our freelance team to create technical publications for agricultural and construction vehicles.

The position involves authoring service manuals and troubleshooting information in an Arbortext XML authoring application. Basic product photography skills and the use of CAD models are used to generate illustrations for the manuals.

The role requires an ability to perform product research using various source files, bills of materials, engineering drawings, CAD models, and conversations with engineers and other stakeholders to pull together information for the manuals. This can also involve disassembling parts and vehicle assemblies in the shop, tracing fault code symptoms, and other hands on work to develop instructions and illustrations for the manuals.

The products and documentation involve a wide range of technologies, including a variety of electrical controls and sensors, large mechanical/automotive power train assemblies, touchscreen interfaces, automation and computer controls, and hydraulic systems.
