Do you love learning new things and sharing your knowledge with others?
Wouldn’t it be cool to be able to do that that full time: while actually getting paid?
Better yet, what if you could do this remotely, from the comfort of your own home.
This isn’t a just a dream job – this can be a reality.
We are currently hiring a full-time video instructor to create top-of-the line Android and Flutter video courses for our site!
Keep reading to find out more about us and the job, and to learn how to apply.
We are Razeware: the company behind raywenderlich.com. We are a very small company, with just 15 full-time team members including me and my wife Vicki. Here’s a picture of us from our recent company retreat:
One of the cool things about Razeware is it’s not just us. We’re joined by a friendly supportive community of 200 part-time mobile developers from around the world, and together we love to learn new things and share our knowledge.
Over the past 8 years, together we have created over 3,000 videos, 2,000 tutorials, and 40 books. Our products have made a difference in the lives of thousands of developers, helping them to get their first job as a mobile developer, grow their careers, or create the app of their dreams.
I think if you want to work somewhere, it’s important what the values of the company are. Here are ours:
- High quality work. Our goal is to create the highest quality tutorials on the Internet.
- Learn & share. We love to learn new things, and share that knowledge with others.
- Support each other. We are a friendly and supportive community. We work as a team, and lift each other up.
- Iterate. We continually improve on everything that we do.
You’ll find we have a unique culture. A team member described it really well in our recent 1 on 1: “It’s all about people; we have such amazing people. Everyone is so kind and caring, and working together to a common goal. If someone has trouble, someone else will step in to help. It will never be ‘I can’t do that’, but ‘I’ll help you out to make things better.'”
Razeware is a fully-remote company, and we embrace it in everything we do. We favor strong and transparent communication, working asynchronously and autonomously, and support extremely flexible work schedules.
