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 currently looking for someone who has both strong writing skills, as well as the technical ability to create small demos and projects related to the course content that we are building out. For example, this could be someone with a liberal arts background who has recently graduated from a coding bootcamp (but we are open to many other types of applicants as well).
-Create written content that walks users through technical topics.
-Create small code demos and projects that will integrate well with the flow of the rest of the course.
-Contribute to our GitHub repo, validate the code you've written, and test them in our web app.
-Participate in feedback rounds between you and an editor, and communicate reliably with them.
-Familiarity with git & GitHub
-Some formal background in writing with strong attention to detail
-Strong research and comprehension skills, especially as it relates to technical docs/books/blogs
-Some coding background (school, bootcamp, internship, online certs + a portfolio, etc)
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 cloud development (especially AWS and/or DynamoDB)
-Familiarity with Python
-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.
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
We hope that the technical work you do for Moonrise can be helpful in landing a full-time engineering gig somewhere and we would gladly offer mentorship and support in this process!
