Back in August, I published the first job here on Baeldung to hire a technical content editor for the site. The applications came in almost immediately and I hired someone within two weeks.
This is the next step for the Baeldung – I’m looking for a engineer to work with me on creating technical videos (screencasts).
And, same as last time – I’m reaching out to readers and to the Baeldung community.
What’s the budget?
The budget for 1 hour of video is 1000$.
Based on an estimated 12 hours of work – this will be an hourly rate of about 83$ / hour.
Of course, the process will be slightly slower initially depending on your experience with speaking, editing, etc; as you get a handle on it, it should definitely become faster.
Who’s the right candidate?
First – you need to be a developer yourself, working or actively involved in the Java and Spring ecosystem. The videos will be code centric, so being in the trenches and able to code is instrumental.
Second – you need to be either a native speaker or have solid delivery in English. Screencasts are mostly audio-centric, so the way they’re delivered is of course a very important aspect.
Finally – you don’t need to necessarily have experience with video, but if you do – it’s going to help. If you don’t have any video experience, just expect there’s going to be a learning curve.
Here’s the Baeldung YouTube channel if you want to get a better idea of what these kinds of videos look like.
What’s the actual job?
You’ll be working on screencasts focused on various Java and Spring topics.
Here’s how the process will work for a new video – for example – a 10 min screencast.
I’ll provide a quick sample project and a high level overview of the main points to hit in the video.
You’ll go through the project to understand it and then you’ll do the recording. After a quick editing pass you’ll send me the draft and I’ll provide feedback.
Finally – you’ll make some (minimal) changes based on my feedback.
Generally, for 10 minutes of video, expect about 2 hours of work.
How do I apply?
If you think you’re well suited for this, I’d love to work with on creating some cool videos for the Java community.
You can get in touch with me over on [email protected].
Do note that the application itself is going to be video. Basically a quick (2-3 minute) screencast where you can talk about any technical / coding topic of your choice (as long as it’s in the Java ecosystem).
