Open Call for Applications on the Unity Team

We’re looking for Unity authors. Read on to see how to apply!

We’re recruiting senior Unity developers to join our Tutorial team as authors. If you’re a senior Unity developer and haven’t applied in the past six months, then you may be just who we’re looking for.

Note: These are paid, part-time contract positions that you can do on your own schedule.

What are the Description and Time Commitment for the Author Role?

Authors focus on writing new high quality articles, and updating existing articles. We prefer to write about topics of interest to a wide audience – especially on particularly hot topics.

If you love learning new things and teaching people about them, then this role may be for you.

* Time commitment: about 3-4 articles every year.

What are the Requirements?

  1. Senior Unity Developer.
  2. You should be a good writer with very fluent English writing skills. Ideally, you have experience writing about technical topics in English.
  3. You should be comfortable learning about brand new topics that you’ve never done before; some of which may be poorly documented or not documented at all.
  4. You should have a strong work ethic because this will be a significant time commitment and you must be able to deliver on deadline.
  5. Why Join our Team?

    1. We’re a group of over 300 elite developers from around the world, who team up to create the highest quality articles on the Internet. We’re always looking for talented developers to join our team, and we’d love for you to be a part! :]

    2. Learning: You’ll always be learning something new — and you’ll have fun doing it! You’ll become a better developer and writer, but the best part is that you’ll make a lot of new friends along the way who are also passionate about Unity.
    3. Money: Get paid to learn! We offer the highest rates in the industry.
    4. Special Opportunities: Members of the Tutorial Team get access to special opportunities such as contributing to our books and products, being a guest on our podcast, working on team projects and much more.
    5. Recognition: Each article lists the contributors at the bottom of the article with a link to your profile, giving you great exposure. This is great to add to your resume.
    6. Make a Difference: We get emails every day about how our articles help our readers make their first app, get their dream job or accomplish a lifelong dream of making their own game. This means a lot to us, and it makes all the hard work worth it!
    7. Free Stuff: As a final bonus, by joining the Tutorial Team you’ll get a free copy of all of the products we sell on the site. This is over $2000 in value!

    What is the Tryout Process Like?

    You’ll be asked to write a short, sample article to gauge your writing, Unity skills and adherence to our guides. Pass that stage, and you’ll then work on a full article to complete the tryout process.
