Technical Writer/Editor, Operations & Engineering
The American Gas Association, founded in 1918, represents more than 200 local energy companies that deliver clean natural gas throughout the United States. There are more than 76 million residential, commercial and industrial natural gas customers in the U.S., of which 95 percent — more than 72 million customers — receive their gas from AGA members. AGA is an advocate for natural gas utility companies and their customers and provides a broad range of programs and services for member natural gas pipelines, marketers, gatherers, international natural gas companies, and industry associates. Today, natural gas meets more than thirty percent of the United States' energy needs.
AGA’s Operations and Engineering Team works with industry stakeholders and AGA members to understand and implement operational practices which enhance safety, share learnings, identify new research and development opportunities, and provide input in developing pipeline safety regulations. AGA’s technical committees meet twice a year to understand and share new processes, practices, and challenges. AGA’s committees also develop technical papers to provide AGA’s members with guidance on managing operational activities.
As a member of the Operations and Engineering team, the Technical Writer has the opportunity to work closely with industry experts to not only learn how integral Natural Gas is in the dynamic energy industry, but also to develop vital research into easy-to-consume resources that can be used to inform industry practices, safety procedures, and future research. The Writer will work across the Association on projects with engineers, economists, and analysts.
Successful candidates will have a bachelor’s degree in a relevant field, 3 years of experience in technical writing, the ability to travel domestically up to 25% of the time (when public health conditions permit), and an eagerness to learn and grow. Employees have rated AGA a Washington Post Top Workplace for six consecutive years (2015-2020).
