Technical Content & Proposal Writer

Berkeley, CA
Business Organization – Go to Market
Full-time
You are a wizard of words. You love making even the most challenging topics a pleasure to read and easy to consume. You learn quickly and bring a fair amount of technical chops to the table but you prefer the beauty of language over data. The Technical Content Writer is responsible for authoring a wide variety of content to support the needs of Rigetti’s growing Enterprise team. We regularly take a tough subject matter and make it approachable to a non-technical business audience.  Other times, your writing will need to hold up to the critical eye of a technologist or academic scholar. To be successful you will need to know the difference. Some examples include, but are not limited to white papers, case studies, sales decks, infographics, blog posts, articles, and customer proposals. The successful candidate will have experience in B2B marketing, content production, and deeply technical environments. 

Applicants must submit a portfolio that showcases a variety of work, including at least one long-form authored piece such as a branded white paper or case study. Prior work should reflect understanding of enterprise hardware, software, or services or other highly technical subject matter. Don’t hesitate to throw in some of your more relaxed writing examples as well that showcase your personal style.
