Moonrise Labs is a new coding education platform that uses a lab-based approach to teach software and cloud development skills to learners at various competency levels.
We are a small team and are looking for help building out course content. We are looking for someone who has both strong writing skills, as well as the technical ability to create small demos and projects related to the relevant course topic(s).
We are open to many different kinds of applicant profiles, but an example of someone we might be looking for is a person who had a previous degree/job in liberal arts or communication, who has gone through something like a bootcamp and is trying to find their first dev role. We hope that the technical work you do for Moonrise can be helpful in landing your first full-time engineering gig somewhere.
-Create written content that walks users through technical topics. The content needs to be empathetic to learners who are new to the industry and/or transitioning from a different industry.
-To supplement the written content, you will be creating small demos and projects that will need to integrate well with the flow of the rest of the course. These will need to be appropriate for the learner's competency level and cover the relevant skills the course is trying to teach.
-You'll contribute to our GitHub repository, validate the pieces of code you've written to check for functionality, and also test them in our browser app.
-There will be a back-and-forth process between you and an editor, which will require you to be able to communicate reliably as well as have the ability to take feedback and make improvements on your work.
-Familiarity with git & GitHub
-Some formal background in writing
-Strong research and comprehension skills, especially as it relates to finding and reading technical docs/books/blogs
-Some coding background (school, bootcamp, internship, online certs + a portfolio, etc)
-Some familiarity with cloud development
-A way to give us a contract to sign and a way to invoice us
Nice to have:
-Experience with git & GitHub in a team environment
-Some formal background in technical writing
-Experience as a junior/associate developer on a team
-Familiarity with AWS, Python, and/or DynamoDB
-Live within +/- 6 hours of PST
This is a freelance position, and pays $40 an hour. We'll work together a couple hours at a time as we build up trust on both sides.
To apply, please send me a DM with your resume, at least 2-3 writing samples, a link to your coding portfolio, and any other information you want us to consider. If you prefer, you can send it via email to email@example.com
