The following vacancies are available to be filled immediately.
Vacancy: Do-It-Yourself staff writer
We’re looking for inspired makers to build cool technology projects and document the process. You'll be joining a vibrant team of passionate technology enthusiasts with great opportunities for personal and professional development.
The ideal candidate will be able to clearly break down a project into steps, and take great quality photographs and diagrams to illustrate each step, as well as the occasional video demo. You should be confident in one or more of the following areas: electronics, programming (C/Python), Arduino or Raspberry Pi, woodworking, sewing, or 3D printing, and a constant desire to learn more.
We'll expect 4 articles per month from you: one big project, plus three standard articles (smaller projects, or less hands-on pieces). Standard articles will be paid on a tiered rate starting at $90, with pay increasing every two years. Bigger projects will be paid anywhere from $150-$200 plus some allowance for materials expenses.

Please also send us three project ideas: these would be the first three things you would make.
