In this role, you will:

  • Join an Agile team. Our goal is to have a team that can “dog pile” on our priorities and share work as much as possible. So while you will specialize in the areas on this list, in a perfect world we will cross-train you to be able to help out anywhere.

  • Help us with our next generation tools and authoring environment. We are embarking on an ambitious upgrade to our current DITA-based authoring and publishing tools, to improve our ability to scale as Salesforce grows and to improve the writer experience in creating content.

  • Write code. You will be part of the team that fixes and enhances our current DITA- based publishing pipeline, working with XSLT, Jenkins, and other continuous integration and deployment tools. You will also be hands-on in creating the next generation versions.

The fine print

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or related experience

  • 5+ years demonstrated expertise working with DITA-based publishing systems in large-scale, global environments with localization into multiple languages and deployment in multiple formats to multiple publication end points

  • Excellent XSLT skills (2.x), XSL-FO, XPath, and XQuery skills

  • Strong command of the DITA XML standard (1.2 and later) at the specification level

  • Deep experience working with and customizing Oxygen in a DITA authoring environment, including Web Author and Content Fusion deployments
