The title says it all. We need more writers to keep the fresh hacks coming, now’s your chance to apply for the job.
UPDATE: Thank you for all of the applications. I have made the first round of offers to a select few. Narrowing it down to a handful was difficult as so many highly qualified, avid readers sent in applications. You are still welcome to submit an application which we’ll keep on file, but I don’t anticipate making any more offers at this time.
Contributors are hired as private contractors and paid for each post. Writers should have the technical expertise to understand the projects they are writing about, and a passion for the wide range of topics we feature. If you’re interested, please email our jobs line and include:
- Details about your background (education, employment, etc.) that make you a valuable addition to the team
- Links to your blog/project posts/etc. which have been published on the Internet
- One example post written in the voice of Hack a Day. Include a banner image, 150 words, the link to the project, and any in-links to related and relevant Hack a Day features.
Words of encouragement
First off, we won’t be discussing compensation publicly. Want to know what we pay? Send in a successful application and we’ll talk about it.
Secondly, don’t pass up this opportunity. I watched one of these posts go by and waited another year before I saw the next one and applied. Now I’m running the place. Our team is made up of avid readers. If you’re passionate about the stuff here and you have a few hours each week to do some writing you need to apply now!
Why are we hiring more writers?
Our tagline says it all. We want fresh hacks featured every day at a consistent rate. Right now we’re hitting that goal. But as we add more original content, like the fantastic 3D Printering series [Brian] started, or the conference coverage [Eric] has been doing, we need help making sure we don’t slip on the awesome projects we feature. As new writers find their stride with the daily features they are given the opportunity to write their own original content if they wish.
So what are you waiting for? Ladies and Gentlemen, start your applications!
