Technical Writer

The Challenge:

Do you enjoy looking for new and better ways to present and organize information? Do you want a job where you can use your knowledge and technical writing skills to improve national security? Never has the role of a technical writer been so meaningful. More connected devices, larger storage capacity, and faster connections have resulted in an explosion of available information. The problem facing the intelligence community (IC) is no longer how to get more data – it’s understanding how to organize and present the data in a clear, concise, and meaningful manner. That’s where you come in. With critical thinking, flexibility, and your technical writing and editing skills, you are instrumental in translating, organizing, and documenting data into valuable and relevant intelligence. If you have strong writing and editing skills, we have an opportunity to use those skills to protect our national security.

You have:

  • 8+ years of experience with technical editing
  • Experience with Microsoft Office Suite, including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint
  • Knowledge of the intelligence community and Combatant Command environments
  • Ability to produce high-quality written deliverables in a short time frame
  • Active TS/SCI clearance
  • BA or BS degree or 4 years of additional experience as a technical writer in lieu of a degree

Nice if you have:

  • Experience as an intelligence analyst
  • Possession of excellent oral and written communication skills, including speaking or reading a foreign language at a professional level
  • TS/SCI clearance with a polygraph


Applicants selected will be subject to a security investigation and may need to meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information; TS/SCI clearance is required.
