Job description

Avigilon Alta is the cloud-based end-to-end solution produced by the Video Security and Access Control division of Motorola Solutions.

This role involves working within the Technical Documentation team to develop and improve the customer documentation for the Avigilon Alta video and intrusion products. It requires hands-on writing and high-level planning and prioritisation. You will make a defining contribution to the development of the Avigilon Alta products, by:

  • Writing high quality customer-focussed documentation with creativity and passion. 
  • Designing attractive, easy-to-use information to assist our customers.
  • Peer-reviewing existing and new documentation to ensure the best possible quality and ensure a consistent look-and-feel to the customer documentation.
  • Providing input to the User Experience (UX) team to present a consistent message to our customers.

By working closely with our Engineering, Support, and User Experience teams, you will also get the opportunity to shape our video security and intrusion detection solutions. 

The UK office for the Avigilon Alta team is in Uxbridge, West London. This is a hybrid role, with regular travel to our Uxbridge offices. Note, the Uxbridge office is currently undergoing a refit, so you might need to visit the Victoria, London office for face-to-face interactions with the documentation and wider engineering teams for a short while.

We are looking for someone who

We consider it a bonus if you

  • Have experience creating graphics or video.
  • Have a working knowledge of cloud-based computing, machine learning, or video surveillance systems.
  • Have a working knowledge of MadCap Flare or similar authoring software.
  • Have experience of working with markup languages, such as HTML and XML.
  • Have knowledge of version control workflows (ideally Git).

We think you could be a good fit if you are a team player who thinks holistically, enjoys solving complex problems and thrives on working autonomously, while not afraid to ask for input and learn from your teammates if you’re stuck.

All experience levels will be considered. Does this sound like you? We'd love you to apply, even if you don't meet 100% of the requirements and qualifications.
