SCALITY RECRUITS…

Documentation Consultant

Paris based

Scality is one of the most prominent FrenchTech startups, recognized in France and abroad for its technical leadership and open source contributions. Selected for # FT120, Scality is also a world leader in the field of Software Defined Storage. Scality has more than 300 customers in more than 30 countries, including some of the world’s largest telecommunications operators and banks, numerous TV channels, and more than 30 hospitals. 

The Role

For team members, Scality wants to be an exceptional employer with many benefits such as a flexible work-from-home policy, an ample training allowance (internal/external skills training, conferences, coaching…), sports and wellness programs, matching charity donations, paternity leave and many other benefits that go far beyond standards. 
Scality is also a conscious company that has invested heavily in room-to-room conferences to minimize travel and participates in carbon offset programs.

Summary

Scality’s documentation has been migrated from an authoring tool to a “docs as code” framework, using reStructuredText with the Sphinx static site generator to produce HTML and PDF, and Git for version control.

  • Inject feedback mechanism into documentation page template
  • Automate OSS disclosure generation and publication
  • Various other projects as time permits

You’ll be provided with a range of laptop choices (bring your own Unix!), and up to 2 additional screens.

Technical Skills

  • Python, JavaScript, JSON (HTML, CSS, Jinja would be ideal)
  • Containerization (Docker, Rocket….)
  • Proficiency with Git
  • Ability to work in a continuous integration environment

Interpersonal Skills
