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 must 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.
