Technical Writer

Technical Writer

We’re looking for an enthusiastic, curious and detail-orientated technical writer to join our growing team in Cambridge.


You’ll be part of a close-knit and dynamic team, and your main responsibilities will be:

  • Creating and editing documents for internal and external audiences
  • Collaborating with the design team to maintain up-to-date documentation in line with standards for medical device development
  • Researching, digesting, clarifying and presenting technical information, in text and diagrams

About you

Naturally you’ll be enthusiastic about writing and making documents clear, functional and accurate. You will have at least a 2.1 degree from a top university. You’ll enjoy finding things out by talking to colleagues from different disciplines, and you will be curious, energetic and proactive, and a great team player.

You will ideally have some or all of the following:

  • Excellent verbal and written presentation skills
  • An analytical approach and a quick grasp of functions and relationships of parts across a complex system
  • Attention to detail and consistency across a large number of documents
  • An ability to portray information effectively using graphics and photos
  • Experience with Microsoft Word, ideally editing macros, templates and styles
  • A track record of creating high quality technical content, perhaps in writing up research projects

The package

We offer a competitive salary and a great benefits package (including pension scheme, cycle-to-work scheme, life assurance, and childcare vouchers, and our now famous monthly company BBQs). On top of that, you’ll be joining a company with a fabulous culture of ambition, creativity and teamwork, and where fun is just as valued as our commitment to make surgery better for millions of people.

Why join us?

Cambridge Medical Robotics is developing a next-generation robotic system for universal keyhole surgery. The Versius system comprises a surgeon console, modular light-weight robotic arms and a range of wristed 5 mm instruments. The system uses state-of-the-art 3D high-definition imagery and significantly enhanced flexibility. In short, we’re creating something truly amazing designed to improve the lives of people around the globe; it’s a vision that excites us and hopefully will excite you.

Versius overcomes obstacles to widespread adoption of robotic minimal access surgery, namely robot size, instrument size, versatility, port placement, cost and ease of use, allowing the system to be highly utilised and ultimately cost-comparable to manual laparoscopic surgery.

The Company was formed in 2014 and has its headquarters in Cambridge, United Kingdom. We’re privately owned and enjoy strong financial backing.
