Job Description

The Role: Technical Author (Software)
Based: Blackburn area
Duration: Expected 6 months
Rate: £250-300 p/d

Overview:

The role is a very exciting opportunity for an individual that will be involved in an ongoing project as we look to gain a full and complete understanding of our software systems and then working alongside software developers, help to play a key role in forming the strategy to take us forward.

The Technical Author will mainly be involved with phase one: This is all about getting a full and complete understand of all our Legacy Code that currently is in use within the business. This comprises of around 35 Delphi Applications that mainly utilises a core library of code. These applications require going through one by one, and in conjunction with our Business analysts understanding and then documenting the User Journey alongside the Technical Specification.

The role will be to form the technical side of the team to document the current code and how it relates to the user journey.

The plan is to complete this for all the applications to ensure we fully understand how each application interacts with all others. Once this is complete, the role will then set about creating a strategy for how best to move us forward from the Legacy position we are in today.

Technical Overview & Potential Background:
We are looking to recruit a software focused technical author to document what is in place across the business appplications at the moment.

The objective would be to join the existing development team, but with the initially specific goal of gaining a clear and concise understanding of all the Legacy system and the documenting and passing to other members of the team. The environment is mainly legacy Delphi at the moment and the migration to the future solution is likely C# / .NET.

The software based manufacturing and business systems are crucial to sustaining and building upon the commercial success of the business so they can offer an extremely interesting software development workload, together with on-going application support duties.

Required skills:

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate:
* Technical authority within a commercial software environment
* A background in business-critical manufacturing systems/ engineering to order (Desirable not essential)
* Evidence of being an effective self-starter and a good team-player.
* Strengths in requirements gathering and documentation
* Experience of and commitment to standards-based software quality
