On- & Off-site O&G Technical Writer Houston, TX
Job Ref: JOB-46754
Writing Assistance, Inc, is a national staffing company for Technical Writers. We have a need for a Senior Technical Writer in Houston, TX.
Our client manufactures seismic products for the oil and gas industry. They have about 10 user guides they need updated and rewritten. There are two categories of equipment and vehicles. The equipment manuals are primarily screen captures on how to operate the software, typically a hardware component, and a high level overview about the unit and how to operate. The vehicle manuals are similar kind of thing but less user interface because they use a digital system that monitors engine and hydraulic pressure.
These manuals are more about maintaining and preserving the vehicles. The manuals vary in length and the first three they anticipate taking 1 to 2 months to complete. The manuals are in various states of condition. They are real mix between Word and FrameMaker, and some are missing original design docs and are only PDFs.
They are looking for a candidate in the Houston area so they can be onsite when needed. The bulk of the onsite will consist of kicking off a new manual so the writer can see the equipment and how it functions. They are not sure the direction this will go but there is a small chance of contract-to-hire.
