"Knowledge Base Engineer" has a nice, pompous ring to it that ought to
satisfy your "managers".

Hi all. [insert usual apologies if this topic was done recently]

Here at my company, we're under some pressure to create job titles other
than "technical writer." The thinking behind it is that "technical
writer" puts a glass ceiling above your head. I have a co-worker who's
been in the same position for years, but everyone else who started at
the same time are now managers and directors and what-not.
