At PathAI, we're applying Computer Vision and Machine Learning in amazing ways to pathology and healthcare, with an aim to detect cancer and other diseases. We're applying our work to drug development, the clinical space, and as a global health initiative. Since it's the early days for us, there's a lot of work to do and a lot of great products to build, and a well-engineered experience is critical to the success of everything we aspire to do.

We're looking for a skilled, hands on Technical Writer Manager focused on creating comprehensive world class product documentation for our AI powered clinical pathology Image Management System and In Vitro Diagnostics (IVDs) including Companion Diagnostics.

  • Collaborate with key members of a cross functional team including Product, Project, and Engineering Managers, Technical Leads, Software engineers, Regulatory and Clinical Affairs, legal, marketing and quality personnel.
  • Take ownership of developing all the user facing documentation for our medical devices, including but not limited to the Instructions for Use, Troubleshooting Guide and Quick Reference Guides and meeting submission timelines.
  • Standardize the format, style, and flow of manuals. Establish and maintain style guides and work instructions for documented best practices.
  • Translate technical information and system requirements into content that’s comprehensible by the end user.
  • Work actively with Engineering to ensure alignment between system behavior and documentation.

  • An insatiable intellectual curiosity and the ability to learn quickly in a complex space 


For the right candidate, we'll offer a competitive salary plus equity. We have a strong benefits package, including heavily-subsidized health, dental, and vision insurance plans to keep you in peak shape. It's rounded out by:
