At Saab Australia, we’re pioneering Australia’s defence capability with ongoing development of advanced defence and security technologies. Saab develops everything from combat, communications and security systems, to mixed reality and cyber security solutions.

For over 30 years, we have built a proud reputation of driving solutions that keep us ahead of today’s complex challenges and we are now seeking our employees-of-tomorrow to join our thinking edge, as we head towards our next innovative chapter. Apply today to join our crew and deliver solutions with purpose.

The role

As part of our Maritime group, the Technical Writer will develop a range of technical documentation (print and online) relating to Saab’s 9LV combat management system across the full Royal Australian Navy (RAN) surface fleet.

Further, the successful candidate will:

  • Work closely with software/hardware engineers to develop new and existing documentation
  • Validate documentation against the product

About you

Your skills and experience will include:

  • Writing in plain English
  • Writing and editing large and/or complex documents to an advanced level in FrameMaker or XML-based authoring tools to develop and maintain documentation
  • Writing technical publications in a hardware or software development environment, preferably in an Australian defence environment
  • Using graphical tools for manipulating and producing simple diagrams
  • Implementing configuration management and quality processes
  • Using Microsoft Word and Excel at an advanced level
