Hello from rainy Georgia!

I'm moving into a new content-management position at work (yay! I think ...
), and my company is looking to hire someone to take over the brunt of my
tech writing and software QA testing roles. Although my job title has been
"technical writer," the company discovered last year that I'm good at QA,
so they added me to their QA team for 2-3 weeks of each development cycle.
(Development cycles are 8-12 weeks each, so it's a relatively significant
chunk of my time.)

For the new hire, they want to find someone who is also good at both
software documentation/KB management and QA testing (and who can answer the
occasional support ticket when the support team is overloaded), and they're
thinking that the "technical writer" job title doesn't quite cover it.

So, I'm looking for suggestions for a job title, maybe something a little
more elegant than Technical Writer/QA Tester (though that is accurate and
would work). The job will be roughly 25% QA, 10% support, and 65% software
doc/KB management.

Any ideas?
