NOTE: This position is not currently open.
This is not the typical code-focused style of article I usually publish here on Baeldung.
Jumping right into it – the site is growing, more and more developers are applying to become authors, and the current editorial team (9 editors) is starting to need help again.
I'm looking for a new part-time technical editor to join the editorial team.
And what better way to find a solid content editor for the site than reaching out to readers and the community.
The Right Candidate?
First – you need to be a developer yourself, working or actively involved in the ecosystem you're going to be focused on. That could be Java/Spring, but also the Linux, Scala, Kotlin and Computer Science ecosystems.
All of these articles are code-centric, so being in the trenches and able to code is instrumental.
Second – and it almost goes without saying – you should have an excellent command of the English language.
What Will You Be Doing?
You're going to work with authors, review their new article drafts, and provide helpful feedback.
The goal is to make sure that the article hits a high level of quality before it gets published. More specifically – articles should match the Baeldung formatting, code, and style guidelines.
Beyond formatting and style, articles should be code-focused, clean, and easy to understand. Sometimes an article is almost there, but not quite – and the author needs to be guided towards a better solution or a better way of explaining some technical concepts.
Budgets and Time Commitment
You're going to be working with 6-7 authors to help them with their articles.
An article usually takes about two rounds of review until it's ready to go. All of this usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes of work for a small to a medium article and can take 60 minutes for larger writeups.
Overall, you'll spend somewhere around 10 hours/month.
The budget for the position is 600$ / month.
Note that this is the starting level in the budget. Then, based on your metrics – there are 3 other levels internally.
If you think you're well suited for this work, I'd love to work with you to help grow Baeldung.
