I just started at a place that has never had a tech writer, and is not even a tech company...but they have developed software which is mostly used internally.

> I'm currently a department of one (laying the foundation for another round of future empire-building), so I am self-editing; write, wait a day, review and correct. When I've had writers but no editors in the past we have peer-edited.
