We’re looking for a Linux Developer to work on creating technical articles.
First – you naturally need to be a developer working or actively involved in the Linux ecosystem. The articles will be code-centric, so being in the trenches and able to code is instrumental.
Second – you need a solid command of the English language.
Budget and Time Commitment
Here are the typical budgets used by most authors:
- 1250+ words - 76$
- 1500+ words - 81$
- 1250+ words - 79$
- 1500+ words - 84$
- 1750+ words - 89$
Note that, up to May 2021, due to COVID-19, we're working with an adjusted budget of -10% to -15% for all articles.
Once you get started, we have a lot more budget levels (the top level is 22), based on the quality of your writeups.
In terms of time commitment, a good target is one article every 2-3 weeks - but that’s very flexible (as long as our communication is good).
About the article (+ some examples)
We’ll usually pick articles out of the existing content calendar of the site. You can also suggest your own topics as well (and get an additional compensation for that).
Here are a few examples of topics:
- Guide to Linux jq Command for JSON Processing
- How Long a Linux Process Has Been Running
- How to Use Command Line Arguments in a Bash Script
And here's a few finished article examples:
- Adding a Path to the Linux PATH Variable
- Linux ps Command
- Transfer Files Between Linux Machines Over SSH
