We are looking to grow our Mott MacDonald Digital Ventures (MMDV) team with a highly motivated individual with an interest in product who can develop compelling content for Moata, our digital solutions platform, helping us achieve our purpose of transforming infrastructure at speed.

We aim to drive adoption of our solutions by enabling customers to self-serve product information.

We aim to refresh the content frequently, and the successful candidate will play a large part in supporting this. The majority of the candidate's first year will focus on the digital service centre, with the role branching out into wider product activities with time, providing ample opportunity for personal and professional development alongside our industry-leading platform team.

Role and Responsibilities

You will be joining the Mott MacDonald Digital Ventures (MMDV) product and marketing team, charged with writing technical and non-technical content for our Moata platform and products. The product and marketing team is responsible for product lifecycle management, the product vision, strategy and roadmap across the portfolio. A key part of the team's activity relates to the continuous development of Moata's digital service center, a foundational layer of Moata's platform user experience.

We are looking for a Technical Content Writer who will write, manage and collaborate on content production for Moata's digital service center. The person will deliver and execute the vision for the digital service center while working closely with product leads, product managers, product marketers, product owners, designers, developers, and the wider marketing and brand team.

The person will also work with stakeholders around the business to create, improve and maintain product content. This will require liaising with technical specialists across the business to acquire information and turn it into digestible product content, along with editing, curating and aggregating existing content. The type of content you will create includes user guides, videos, FAQs, tutorials, how-to guides, case studies, stories, onboarding materials, emails, blogs, and PowerPoint decks.

You will play a key role in the success of Moata's products. The ability to speak and write to a high standard is crucial, and you will frequently have to turn complex technical ideas into engaging copy. The candidate needs to be adept at delivering to tight deadlines, and to be detail-orientated.
