Staff Technical Writer
You're going to meet a lot of women on the tech docs team. They are often the smartest people in the room. However, if you're not based in San Francisco, you're probably going to feel some alienation.

Maybe. There is definitely a boys club in leadership, but I think that's visible to the public. There is a stated awareness that there's a lack of diversity in leadership, but i do wonder if that's for publicity. Technical writers have a lot of freedom to complete very specific work in the manner that works best for them as long as it doesn't go too far afield of very old processes. No strong detection of gender bias, but that is not to say it doesn't exist. It definitely does. People just generally behave professionally so it doesn't cause massive trouble.
