What we do at Codat

Codat is a fast-growing technology company located in Clerkenwell, Central London. We are a universal API for small business financial data. 

We build developer-friendly infrastructure that gives businesses the ability to create their own next generation products. We are well-funded with a large and growing number of enterprise and fintech clients - most recently we were awarded a £5m grant from the RBS Capability and Innovation Fund to help power our growth.

What you will be doing

We’re looking for an experienced technical writer to join our team and take on ownership of our documentation (mostly web-based).  You’ll own all our documentation, including developer-facing API documentation, business-facing product documentation and support-facing technical documentation.  In addition, we’d like you to take the lead on creating end-user facing documentation to guide business users through the process of setting up our software.

You will be given the freedom and responsibility to define the direction we take with our documentation to make sure it’s a world-class offering, like our API.

Our values

No matter what we’re doing, whether we’re speaking to customers, partners or to each other, we try at all times to live by our values:

Useful - We believe in delivering technology that solves real problems for real businesses. We have a real want to do the stuff that isn't always sexy but makes a difference.

United - We believe that the people in the best teams push and enable each other to excel. We have each other’s back - when things go wrong, there isn't blame, we work together to fix it. We embrace differences of opinion to end up with an even better outcome - not letting our egos win.

Unstoppable - We believe that constant drive towards a single, clearly stated goal is the primary method of building great things. We are biased towards action - our decisions are informed and then we act. There is no such thing as a hard problem - it is how we outperform others.

What excites us

  • Ability to write clearly and concisely for different audiences, with content tailored to each audience.
  • High level of attention to detail.
  • Proven experience writing technical documentation for software products.
  • Confident working independently and setting strategy and direction.
  • Financial knowledge or an accounting background is an advantage.
