Founded in 2011 with HQ in Reston, Virginia, Modus has employees all over the world. Our culture is inspired by the open-source ethos with an emphasis on continuous learning, collaboration, and autonomy. Modus has been recognized as one of the fastest-growing private companies for 6 years in a row by Inc. magazine, and two years in a row by the Washington Business Journal. FlexJobs rated Modus as a top company for remote work.

Based on the model of an open source team, Modites work remotely, and are located across the globe. That’s allowed us to hire the best talent in the world, no matter where they live. Our highly collaborative, autonomous, and effective working environment is fueled by a team unified by a love of continuous learning.

About You

You love helping and supporting teams to build great software. You have a primary focus on working on preparing the documentation about the project/solution for both internal and external stakeholders based on priorities.

You have worked with teams before on large and demonstrable projects. You have great experience in planning, shaping, developing, and publishing content for multidisciplinary teams. Experience in an Agile/Scrum development methodology is a must.  

You have no problem prioritizing and multitasking with minimal supervision. You work independently, researching products and determining the clearest and most logical way to present information to different audiences. Collaborating with subject matter experts is a usual occurrence for you. 

Background in Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) /structured authoring is a plus, as well as API documentation experience. 

You love learning. You enjoy playing with new tech and exploring areas that you might not have experience with yet.  You are a self-driven, self-learner willing to share knowledge and participate actively in your community.

Having overlap with your team is critical when working in a global remote team. Modus requires all team members to overlap with EST morning hours daily. In addition, reliable high speed internet is a must and experience in using an iOS device. 

Things You Might Do

Modus is a fast-growing, and remote-first company, so you'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. That said, here are some things you'll probably do:

  • Give back to the community via open source and blog posts
  • Teach and be taught: Modus creates active teams that work in internal and external projects together, giving opportunities to stay relevant with the latest technologies and learning from experts worldwide
  • Interact directly with internal and external clients to represent Modus and its values
