What we do at Codat

Our mission is to make life easier for the lifeblood of economies globally; small and medium-sized businesses. Codat is a universal API for consented business financial data, powering the next generation of products and services for this historically underserved market.  
We have offices in London, New York, Sydney, and a San Francisco office will be opening soon. We are a privately held company and have recently closed our Series B, being funded by Index Ventures, Tiger Global, American Express, PayPal and a line-up of world-class angel investors.
We live by our values of being united as a single team, building a product that is useful to our clients and their customers alike, with a focus and urgency that makes us unstoppable.

What you will be doing

Working with stakeholders from across the business, you will be writing documentation that explains Codat’s products and API to our clients, users and across Codat. This includes documentation for new products and features, enhancements to existing features, and changes to our API and data model.

Your content will need to be accurate, well-structured, and consistent with our style guide. We write most of our content in Markdown and manage it using, but familiarity with these tools is not necessary.

Our values

No matter what we’re doing - whether we’re speaking to customers, partners or to each other - we live by our values.

We believe in delivering useful technology that solves real problems for real businesses.  We have a real want to do the stuff that isn't always “cool” but makes a difference.

We believe that the people in the best teams push and enable each other to excel.  We’re united when we have each other’s backs - when something goes wrong, we don’t blame, we work together to fix it.  We embrace differences of opinion to end up with better outcomes.  We don’t let our egos win.

We believe that an unstoppable drive towards a single, clearly stated goal is the best way to build great things.  We are biased towards action - we make informed decisions and then we act.  There is no such thing as an impossible problem, just a great challenge to sink our teeth into.

What excites us

We’d love to see experience writing technical documentation at any size of company, but ideally where the product is fast moving, and requirements are fluid and can change week-by-week. You will need to be comfortable working directly with Product Owners, Business Analysts and Developers to understand what will be delivered and work as part of an agile team to produce gold standard documentation.

We’re especially interested to hear from you if you have a background working in a software company or have written documentation aimed at developers in the past.

If you are excited about applying for this role but aren't certain you meet 100% of the criteria, we'd still love to hear from you
