AlienVault/OSSIM Job Opening: Documentation Writer required.

August 23, 2009 | Dominique Karg

Hello all,

we’re looking for somebody to assist us in the elaboration of documentation around OSSIM, it’s components and Open Source Security in general. We require strong knowledge both in English written skills as well as experience on OSSIM. We are willing to pay on a per-work basis up to 3000 or 4000 . a month, with an option to get a permanent contract if the initial work is satisfying.

I don’t want to sound harsh, but the two aforementioned requirements are a must and a strong filter. The english has to be perfect (much better than mine of course 😊 ) and knowledge of OSSIM has to be deep, based on interest and/or experience already present before reading this job offering. I mean, even if your english is perfect don’t try to download OSSIM, check out a couple of things and apply, or if you know lots and lots about OSSIM don’t start with an intensive english course.

If you’re interested we’d like you to send in a sample of your work along with a curriculum vitae. We don’t care about your nationality or where you are located. the payment will remain the same of course. The sample we’re asking for would be to document the current alarm section (Incidents->Alarms). Think about a user that’s new to OSSIM, clicks on the help in order to see what that alarm panel means and gets to that document you’ve written. The desired document format would be pdf, although when documentation gets live some sort of wiki is going to be used. Remember, there are three things that should excel in this sample:

  • We should raise our eyebrows in awe at your english written skills.
  • We should be impressed by the deep knowledge of OSSIM that we can see in those words.
  • On the other hand, this is no technical document, it should be clear for a new OSSIM user with little or no previous SIEM experience.

Please send this sample to “jcasal” and “dk”, both at the alienvault.com domain. If you include “OSSIM Documentation Writer” in the subject you’ll ensure it will reach us asap 😊.

Good luck!
