Looking for a comfortable 9-5 workday, light work load, no stress? Look elsewhere. But if you want to create technical documentation you can be proud of, read on.

As the world's leading innovator of 2D and 3D graphics technology, Alias|Wavefront develops advanced software for the film and video, web authoring, games and interactive media, industrial design and visualization markets with a long list of prestigious customers that includes Industrial Light & Magic, BMW, Ford, Apple, Sony Interactive, Rollerblade Inc., and Timex.

Product reviewers of our software, PowerAnimator V7, said "The documentation, tutorials, and customer support are superb." Our goals for future product releases are even higher.
We are currently hiring both full-time and contract writers.

You will gather information from software developers by email and interview; test the functionality from within the software package; write and illustrate new reference and task-based documentation to existing standards, formats, and presentation, and revise existing documentation to cover changed functionality; help develop new tutorials in coordination with Alias|Wavefront Assist; test, edit, and illustrate (where necessary) the tutorials; develop and update online HTML documentation as well as print documentation from single-source FrameMaker files.

Experience and qualifications:
You have at least three year's experience writing end-user software manuals, graphics skills, the ability to think in 3D, and to be an enthusiastic customer advocate. You hold a relevant degree in English, Journalism, or Computer Science, and are experienced working with FrameMaker, HTML, and online documentation in a UNIX environment. Experience documenting 3D design, animation, or paint programs will weigh heavily in your favor.
