Just as I was wrapping up the Nextory project, I got an email from Tara, the Head of Customer Success at Portainer. They need a technical editor to run their eye across help content which is being migrated from their old docs platform to GitBook. After we agreed on my availability and fit for the project (I did a sample edit on one topic), we were on.
I’m in week two and it’s been very refreshing. James, the Customer Success Manager, is my key contact. He’s a delight to work with. He’s not a writer but he knows documentation. He is clear on what he wants and doesn’t want, but he also accepts my professional expertise when I offer it. It’s working well.
Portainer seems to be an interesting company. They provide containers as a service to enable more efficient app deployment and management. It’s an area of tech that I have been keen to explore, so I’m learning as I edit.
