    • You must be able to write in a style that is easy to read and understand by readers of normal intelligence, and that does not rely on jargon or terms of art.
    • You must be sufficiently flexible to function in an environment with rapidly shifting priorities, and to pivot to other tasks as needed.
    • You must submit unedited first drafts or self-edited writing samples for review. Team-contributed works and works edited by others are strongly discouraged.


    • You should have a four-year degree in Computer Science or English.
