Technical Writer needed. Resource will be capturing technical procedures in interviews with business people and turning them into written step-by-step process documentation.
The client islooking for someone who can create a cookbook of procedures from a set of discussions/interviews with folks who are using a software application to automate a process. The complexity of the task is that the software applications are new to the users and therefore they are learning as they go. So effective, succinct, timely technical writing in English (only) is important but it also takes some interview skills and logical, linear thinking to identify gaps in the process and a personal tolerance of users that may not prioritize the documentation work at the same level as the writer.
The end work product would be a set of user "how-to" manuals that could be used for new staff training or similar activities.
Initial time would need to be in the client's offices in Saint Paul, close to 94 & Kellogg. Writing could be done from a home office or off-site. Clothes at the client site would need to be business dress (tie for men, etc.). Business hours for the on-site work would be 8:30 - 5 PM.
For the right writer the work could be 16-20 hours per week for 4-6 months. Since the project includes 4-5 different pieces of software the writing could be performed by more than one writer.
