With over 4000 product development resources, Visma has quickly evolved into Europe's largest center of excellence at development of cloud software. The best products tend to come as a result of close collaboration in multi-disciplinary teams, and attracting and retaining world-class people, so we need you!

About the role
As a technical writer, you will be an important part of the development team. With your understanding of the users’ needs and your expert skills in documentation management and translation, you will make both the user interface and the user documentation clear and easy to understand for our partners and end users.
The Visma.net ERP team is organized in self-driving teams, each responsible for one component of the ERP solution. We are looking for a technical writer to join the Project Accounting team, where you will work closely with product owners, developers and business analysts. You will also work closely with four other technical writers working on other components.
Technical writers on the Visma.net ERP team are also responsible for the localization of the application. We work with a CAT tool (Crowdin) to translate the user interface into Norwegian, Dutch, Swedish, Finnish, and Danish. Therefore, it’s important that you are fluent in Danish. Experience with translation tools or with translation of financial material is an absolute plus.
Aside from your documentation and translation skills – writing great content, organizing massive amounts of it and making highly technical information easy to understand – you also have a natural ability to coordinate and push initiatives forward. With technical writers dispersed across 5 teams, it will be your responsibility to make sure documentation and localization initiatives are prioritized and that all technical writers are working towards the same goals.
As a technical writer on the Visma.net ERP team, you will work with:
Production and maintenance of technical documentation
Translation of the user interface
Ensuring linguistic consistency between UI and documentation
Optimizing the organization of a massive amount of support documentation
Improving the translation and documentation infrastructure
Showing the value of documentation and localization to management
Experience of working with technical writing and/or software translation
You have a bachelor’s degree in a relevant discipline
You’re fluent in English as well as in Danish
You have a flair for management and coordination of a dispersed team
You are passionate about serving customers
Experience with ERP systems or knowledge of accounting
Experience with single-source publishing and topic-based content authoring systems, such as MadCap Flare
Experience with CAT tools (fx. Crowdin)
Recruitment will be done on a rolling basis.
The first interview will take place at our office in Copenhagen (or online) where we get to know each other. If invited for the second interview, you will ask to do a case and you will meet a peer from one of the other offices.
Hiring Manager & HR will be present at both interviews.
