An electronics design firm needs a contract technical writer with experience writing FDA-approved user manuals for medical devices.
Work can be done remotely with on-site meetings as needed, so please be within driving distance of Carlsbad.
This project will be done in three phases:
o. First, you will review a 180 page user manual for a Covid diagnostic medical device, and make suggestions for improving the manual. (Billable hours.) You will also estimate how long it will take to make those changes and to document new features being added to the device.
o. The design firm will pass your suggestions on to their client to get a contract in place. This step will take approximately four weeks.
o. Once the contract is approved, you will document the new features of the medical device, and then do the suggested changes for making the manual easier to read.
The document is currently in FrameMaker, but the end client is migrating their content to a DITA-based content management system.
The design firm expects there will be more tech writing work in 1Q 2021, so experience with both FrameMaker and DITA is ideal.
o. Experience writing FDA-approved user manuals for medical devices (Absolutely Required)
o. Experience with FrameMaker (Absolutely Required)
o. Experience documenting diagnostic medical devices is a plus
o. Experience with DITA is a major plus
o. Authorized US workers only
o. Local (SoCal) candidates only
o. To be considered, email your resume to [email protected]
