Hack a Day is hiring

We’ve added a handful of contributors in the last couple months, but we’re still looking for more people to contribute daily posts and help expand the site.

This is a paid, freelancing position that requires professionalism, consistency, and reliability. We want to hear from people that are passionate about software/hardware hacking and growing Hack a Day. To apply, send the following to jobs@hackaday.com

  • A short bio about yourself
  • 3 example daily posts written in the style of Hack a Day
  • 3 software or hardware how-tos you’d like to see. For examples of work we’ve done in the past, look here, here, here, and here.
  • A couple sentences on how you would improve the site either through features or content
  • Any additional reasons why you would make a good fit for Hack a Day

Do not send any attachments. Having your own blog you can show off is a definite plus.

    a spanish version sounds like a lot of work and un-needed spending.

    I’m not sure if I can discuss the payment stuff here in the comments, but as far as workload goes its as many posts you’re able to write.
