This role is not currently open.
We’re looking for a new part-time technical editor to join the Java editorial team.
The role involves working with authors, reviewing their new article drafts, and providing 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.
The Right Candidate?
First – you naturally need to be a developer yourself, working or actively involved in the Java and Spring ecosystem. All of these articles are code-centric, so being in the trenches and able to code is instrumental.
Any experience with our secondary areas – Scala, Kotlin, Linux, SQL, Ops – is a plus as well.
Second – and it almost goes without saying – you should have an excellent command of the English language.
You will typically work with 7-9 authors and guide them through their ongoing articles (you can choose to work with fewer or more authors, depending on your availability).
An article can usually take one or two rounds of review/feedback until it’s ready to be published.
So, that will be about, say, 30-45 minutes of work for a small to medium article and can take 60 minutes for larger writeups.
The rate for the role is $25 to $33, mainly depending on your experience level and very slightly on your geographical location.
Once you get started, naturally, we have performance metrics internally – which are also entirely available to you.
A simple average to be aware of in terms of earnings is around $800/month.
