About the Job

We are currently seeking a motivated and customer-oriented Automation Engineer with a background in technical writing to begin a challenging career with Powder River Industries. The successful candidate will assist with the creation and management of tools to generate technical reference documents and will shape the environment such that technical documentation becomes a natural and incremental bi-product of the capability being delivered, whether science, software, or systemic in nature. This may include automating the data collection or fostering the creation of intuitive systems that do not require documentation or identifying existing artifacts that meet contractual requirements and mission needs with minimal, if any, rework. The ideal candidate will have experience in both technical writing and in the development and implementation of automation tools for highly technical organizations. Some of the tasks the Automation Engineer will work on include building automation tools to ensure code and system modifications are documented in a timely manner, creating document repositories that are auto-populated and available to all team members, and developing toolsets that ensure project management artifacts are kept current and are visible by internal staff as well as the Government customer. The Automation Engineer should have deep technical skills to build and maintain automation tools and should have excellent communications skills to help facilitate stakeholder meetings, take meeting minutes, and assist with user documentation needs (e.g., User Guides, FAQs, User Feedback, etc).
