Josh, Senior Technical Writer
“Many MathWorks writers are domain experts who learn about technical writing after joining. Writers join cross-functional teams, so we get to help design new features from the ground up. If you have a good idea, it doesn’t matter if you’re brand new – people will listen.I feel lucky to work with incredibly smart people who care deeply about the quality of their work, and who also know how to have fun. That’s what working to live, rather than living to work, is all about.”
Pragyan, Senior Team Lead, Technical Writing, Bangalore, India Office
“I have been a technical writer for over 12 years and have always enjoyed learning new things. At MathWorks, with the large number of products, there is a great opportunity for learning and never a dull moment. I joined MathWorks without any product experience. Because of our continuous emphasis on learning and helpful colleagues, I could quickly function in my role. The company’s flat hierarchical structure makes people accessible, which accelerated my learning curve.At MathWorks, we also have fun! I love the fact that our families are also invited for outings. It gives me a feeling of one big family working together towards achieving one common goal.”
Revathi, Technical Writer
“If you’re strong technically, love to write, and create examples in MATLAB and Simulink, this is the position for you. The writer position at MathWorks requires a unique blend of strong technical skills and a passion to present technical knowledge. I basically take a new feature, bash it extensively, understand all its technicalities, and present the feature in a user-focused manner. Technical writing is something that truly makes all the MathWorks products viable.”
Chen, Software Developer
“MathWorks is a place that inspires creativity, innovation, and cooperation. As the tech industry moves towards mobile and cloud, MathWorks is also following that trend. I enjoy our cutting-edge development environment because creating super cool features with a great impact feels awesome. The learning curve is always sharp here, and I have so much fun with the new technologies.”
