What we're looking for
Passionate developers who love writing informative content. We're looking for original content—we will not republish anything that's been published elsewhere. Here are some of the categories we're looking for writers on:

  • Technical - Vue, Hasura, Google Cloud, JavaScript, GraphQL, TailwindCSS, Node.js, Fastify, Chrome extensions, QA, testing
    Each article should be at least 1500 words long and include detailed instructions/steps, how to's and so on.
  • Productivity - Hacks, learnings, tools, tips, etc.
    These articles should help developers improve + speed up their processes.
How the process works
  • Apply with a topic/proposal via Recruitee.
  • Once your proposal is accepted, we'll get in touch and help you refine your title and outline. We will also decide on the payout amount and mechanisms at this stage.
  • We will share our writing guides and written documentation for each step (submitting a proposal, asking for review, and more). Our editor will also be available anytime if you need help.
  • There are no strict word-count requirements (2000 is average).
  • Once the draft is finalized, we'll publish the piece on our blog.
  • We will make the payout as we had agreed at the acceptance phase. We will also feature your work on our social media channels and newsletter.
Some finer details
  • Every article will be accompanied by your bio and social media links.
  • We reserve the right to edit and adapt your article blog content as we see fit, and update it in the future for accuracy and comprehensiveness.
  • We also reserve the right to include calls-to-action to Bird Eats Bug's content, including but not limited to existing published blogs, email newsletters, and other content.
  • You can still publish your article on your own blog. We just ask you to keep it exclusive to us for the first month. Then you can publish it on your own blog/site, and link back to our site with appropriate anchor text, i.e., your contributed piece on the Bird Eats Bug blog.
