We’re looking for a new part-time technical editor (remote part-time) to join the .NET/C# editorial team.
The role involves working with authors, reviewing their new article drafts, and providing helpful feedback.
The goal is to make sure that the article hits a high level of quality before it gets published. More specifically – articles should match the Code Maze formatting, code, and style guidelines.
Beyond formatting and style, articles should be code-focused, clean, and easy to understand. Sometimes an article is almost there, but not quite – and the author needs to be guided towards a better solution or a better way of explaining some technical concepts.
Who Should Apply?
First – you need to be a developer yourself, working or actively involved in the .NET, C#, and ASP.NET Core ecosystem. All of our articles are code-centric, so having working experience and being able to code is instrumental.
Any experience with other Object Oriented languages is a plus.
Second – and it almost goes without saying – you should have an excellent command of the English language.
Budgets and Time Commitment
You’re going to work with 6-7 authors to help them with their articles (you can choose to work with fewer or more authors depending on your availability).
An article usually takes about two rounds of review until it’s ready to go. All of this usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes of work for a small to medium article and can take 60 minutes for larger writeups.
The budget for each article is based on your editor level and the number of words.
Here are some typical budgets used by editors:
- 750 words – $55.6
- 1000 words – $60.4
- 1500 words – $73.3
- 2000 words – $80.9
- 750 words – $57.1
- 1000 words – $66.9
- 1500 words – $79.8
- 2000 words – $87.4
- 750 words – $66.2
- 1000 words – $70.9
- 1500 words – $83.8
- 2000 words – $91.5
Your level is determined by internal metrics such as response time and feedback from the senior editors, and the maximum level is 27.
The average earning is around $600/month but it depends mostly on your availability.
We typically handle payments via PayPal or Wire for now, but other options are available as well.
