Are you a native English-speaker (and writer) living in Europe or
interested in moving here? Our TechPubs department is expanding.
We're trying to fill several tech writer positions, including one
whose primary writing responsibility is courses. We're also starting
a new project to move our docset on-line, so experience in that area
This is the recent newspaper ad:

Uniface Technology BV is a well-established international software
company that provides leading edge technology to global information
markets. Due to the success of our 4GL product, UNIFACE, we are
continuously expanding our organization. Our Technical
Publications department is looking for technical writers to be
based at our international headquarters in Amsterdam-Zuidoost.
We write all our technical documentation and education materials
in-house. Due to the constant growth of Uniface products, our
manual set and courses are also constantly expanding. To meet these
needs, the Technical Publications department has a number of
vacancies for full-time technical writers, all of whom should have
very sound technical backgrounds and be native English speakers.
We require a thorough knowledge of C in at least one of these
positions, although this is welcome in all our writers. We also
need a PC expert who can take responsibility for all documentation
of Uniface products on MS-DOS, MS-Windows, Mac, and OS/2. Other
useful knowledge areas are networks, DBMSs, and Case tools.
We would like to hear from technical authors who can work well both
independently and as part of a team, who see a large and expanding
documentation set as a real challenge. Programmers with proven
technical writing experience are just as welcome to apply.
