User Documentation and Internationalization Associate – Hybrid – Germany

We are hiring at Klopotek for a User Documentation and Internationalization Associate to join our team in Germany!

The successful User Documentation and Internationalization Associate will be part of our highly motivated Research and Development team.

Publishers bring stories, new perspectives, knowledge, and exchange to our society. As different as they are, they have a lot in common: in the background, products are planned and calculated, rights are clarified, contracts are concluded with authors, translators and illustrators are involved, distribution channels are used, appearances at events are planned, and so on and so forth. What’s more, it’s not easy for many people to manage all of this for digital titles and content elements, new channels, small-scale products and changing target groups.

Our software and apps help with this, and we also see it as our job to see developments earlier than others and help publishers to always be up to date. Without employees who live this and contribute to it, we will not be able to meet these demands. That is why we are looking for a for our office in Berlin as soon as possible.
