Our media company will soon be launching a new information website, for which we are seeking an experienced Ruby on Rails tutorial writer/ screencaster.
This contributor would be asked to submit as many as one exclusive, tutorial screencast each week, along with associated code, examples, and explanatory copy.
In a given month, two tutorials should aim at Ruby on Rails beginners, one at intermediate developers, and one at advanced, application- building Rails developers.
The tutorials must use widely-accepted best practices and be technically detailed.
This is an ongoing independent contractor position. If accepted, you will be asked (paid) to produce tutorials for a trial period. Assuming all is well during the trial period, you will be asked to produce tutorials on an ongoing basis, 52 weeks per year. You will not be in anyway bound other than normal notice periods, i.e., two weeks.
The contributor would be paid based on experience and skill level; would, of course, have a byline; and would receive backlinks to his or her site/sites. Think of it as a great way to get paid while self promoting.
PLEASE INCLUDE THIS IN YOUR APPLICATION
To get further information/apply, please send an email to armando(at) practicalecommerce.com that (1) describes your experience with Ruby on Rails, (2) confirms your ability to create screencasts (i.e., you have Camtasia software, etc.), (3) includes your rate in U.S. dollars for a 15-to-30 minute tutorial screencast, (4) suggests three tutorial topics, and (5) provides links to work samples.
Thank you and A Final Word
We encourage Ruby on Rails writers/developers of all ages, genders, education, and locations to apply.
Thank you in advance for your application. We admire your talent and look forward to learning more about you.
