Freelance Technical Writer - Docs & Tutorials

Chicago · San Francisco · Remote

About Draftbit

At Draftbit, we believe that software should be a democratizing agent that makes it possible for anyone to turn their app ideas into reality.

Draftbit is a collaborative product development tool, focused on mobile apps. Our platform allows technical and non-technical teams to work together to build native mobile apps. Apps built in Draftbit produce high quality React Native code that can be exported at any time so you can build inside and outside our platform.

Backed by world-class investors (including Y Combinator), we have aggressive growth goals and are looking for a teammates to help us achieve our vision.

About the Position

Draftbit is a platform that allows users to build React Native-based mobile apps visually. Building in Draftbit doesn't require that users code (except for certain advanced features), but it does require some knowledge of:

  • How APIs & databases work
  • Flexbox layout
  • Core concepts of how mobile apps are built (React Native in particular)

As a result, our docs and tutorials are critical aspects of our user's success and are an extension of the product itself.

You will be responsible for creating and maintaining documentation of all features in Draftbit. Our product changes rapidly, so our docs need to keep pace.

You will also create tutorials and guides that provide our users step-by-step instructions for how to accomplish specific goals in Draftbit. These tutorials will be part of

To do this, you'll build screens and apps yourself in our product to help showcase what's possible to others. We expect you'll quickly become a power user of Draftbit.

You'll work with our engineering and success teams to help set priorities and to be a resource for questions, but we expect you to largely self-manage and work autonomously.

This is a freelance, part-time, output-focused role. We are open to both hourly or pay-per-deliverable arrangements. Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit portfolio examples.

About You

  • A storyteller — You understand your audience and they understand you. Your output is engaging from beginning to end. You use all the tools available in your medium of choice.
  • A builder — You plan and then you execute. You're good at "managing up" on your projects.
  • Organized — You've created structure and process where there previously was none.
