I am a friend of a friend and have forwarded this to my partner, lobolance, who is a tech writer and is looking for a job now.

Do you have any more details on the position?

Thanks!

I got notification of this position through the now going defunct De Anza College tech writing program. Apparently Marvell has a long-standing relationship with the director of the program and has used the program as a pool of candidates. That's all I know.
