Job Description

Bring your Information Technology skills to us and experience the Vaco Advantage!

Our recruiting staff gives you an advantage over your competition by promoting your strengths and assets directly to IT hiring managers while helping you to be more prepared for your interviews. Our recruiters will be able to provide great insight about trends in the market - keeping you up to date on compensation expectations, company culture, and growth opportunities. If your background is in Information Technology, and you want to partner with the best, apply today!

The right candidate will have a love of technology and a genuine ability to use language as a tool. You will also be strongly opinionated about how sentence structure and word choice can clarify or obscure meaning (we've spent days debating 'singular they', for example, but have complete consensus on the Oxford comma). But while word debates are great entertainment for you, juggling multiple projects and driving their successful timely completion is your forte.

Preferred candidates will have experience in a software development environment and a familiarity with the various faces of the SDLC, the tools used by developers and testers to make it all work, some experience working in an Agile environment, and some knowledge of APIs. Ideal candidates will have all of the above PLUS some experience documenting developer-facing tools.
Your job will be to create easy-to-understand documentation, tutorials, and other critical technical material for the consumption of our internal development teams. You will work across teams to gather information on business intent and technical implementation, and use it to create a comprehensive document that makes an API or tool easy for a developer to use.
