I'm a Technical Content Manager, myself. I write all the manuals and the
help, but I also am responsible for all content in our on-demand
software application--meaning I rewrite and edit all the words presented
in the app. When people ask, I tell them I'm a Tech Writer. It's easier.

That and 2.75 will get you a single latte.

Chris

> How do you all feel about "Content Developer" or "Technical Content
Developer?"

My official job title is actually "Developer" within the Technical
Communication department (all two of us). Best I can tell, it was a
result of the organizational structure to make this position different
from the writers on the marketing/sales side - we are part of and report
to the development side of the company.

We are actually responsible for help development and some HTML
development in addition to more traditional documentation, but it's not
much beyond the scope of what I've done at other places where I've just
been called a Technical Writer.

We still call ourselves "tech writers" and most people within the
company still call us "tech writers," no matter what the business card
says.
