The Server-Side Swift Team Is Growing!

We’re recruiting experienced Server-Side Swift developers to help us grow our team and provide fresh Server-Side Swift content to our audience.

Note: These are paid, part-time contract positions — take on assignments at your own pace based on your own schedule!

There’s never been a better time to join! If you’re an experienced Server-Side Swift developer with an interest in writing or editing, you may be who we’re looking for!

What Are the Tech Editor and Author Responsibilities and Time Commitments?

  1. Author: Authors focus on writing new high-quality tutorials and updating existing tutorials. We prefer to write about topics of interest to a wide audience — especially on particularly hot topics, demonstrating brand new APIs, cool techniques and more.

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

    * Time commitment: about one tutorial every six months.

  2. Tech Editor: Tech editors are the pillars that hold up our site. They are the guardians that makes sure that each tutorial is top-notch and technically sound.

    If you are a senior developer, have strong attention to detail and enjoy getting paid to learn, this may be for you.

    * Time commitment: about one tech edit every two months.

What Are the Requirements?

  1. You should be an experienced Server-Side Swift Developer.
  2. You should be a good writer with fluent English writing skills.
  3. You should be comfortable learning about new topics that you’ve never used before; some of which may be poorly documented or not documented at all.
  4. You should have a strong work ethic. This will be a significant time commitment, and you must be able to deliver on deadline.

Why Join Our Team?

  1. We are a group of over 200 elite developers from around the world who team up to create the highest-quality tutorials 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 who are also passionate about Server-Side Swift along the way.
  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 tutorial lists the contributors at the bottom of the tutorial with a link to your profile, giving you great exposure and building your portfolio. This is great to add to your resume.
  6. Make a Difference: We get emails every day about how our tutorials help our readers make their first app, get their dream job or accomplish a lifelong dream of making their apps. 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.

What Is the Tryout Process Like?

If you’re applying to be an author, you’ll be required to write a sample tutorial to gauge your writing skills and ability to follow our style and branding.

If you’re applying to be a tech editor, you’ll be given a tutorial to edit and apply information in our guides so that we can gauge your editing skills. If you pass the tech editor tryout, you’re in!
