> writers with the scientific or engineering background required to
> intuitively understand the technology.
>
> SCIEX is a great place to work, with opportunities to work on a
> variety of projects and create manuals in a variety of formats. We are
> creating everything from traditional print manuals, to online help and
> interactive CD based documentation.
