You'll level up your technical chops by publishing content to our ground-breaking, open-source docs platform.
What you'll do
- Write and edit docs for specific audiences and personas until they shine. You'll have exceptional writers to guide you every step of the way on your path to writing excellence.
- We write docs-as-code for an open source static site published on GitHub using Markdown, and Gatsby. Don't know what any of that means? You will by the end of your internship.
- At New Relic, we love to collaborate on solving problems with language. You'll also work with designers, researchers, and software developers.
- Like most software development teams, we work using an agile, sprint process to plan our work. You'll get in the mix and help us set priorities and define our course of action.
This role requires

- An understanding of basic technical writing concepts, such as how to write procedural and conceptual content.
- You can take writing concepts and apply them to your own writing.
- You write sharp sentences that are clear and to the point. You're not afraid to leave those extra words on the cutting-room floor.
- An unbridled curiosity toward technology and software and how it works.
- A strong opinion about the Oxford comma.
Bonus points if you have
- A major/minor in computer science, or a related field, or you've worked on some personal programming projects.
