The Julia Language is excited to share that we will be hiring a technical writer as part of Google Season of Docs 2021. This year’s program is different from previous years and does not operate like other Google Open Source programs, so it is worth checking out the website for more details: https://developers.google.com/season-of-docs
- Start date: May 17th, 2021
- Timeline: Develop docs between May 17th, 2021 and October 15th, 2021
- Stipend: $6,000 USD
- Weekly time commitment: ~10-14 hours per week (with lots of flexibility)
The technical writer will help the Julia Language create a one stop shop onboarding/contributing section for the Julia Ecosystem which will live on the Julia Language website. The goal of this section will be to compile all of the resources necessary for someone, regardless of where they are in their technical, open source, or Julia journey, to be able to use this guide and start making contributions to the Julia community. You can find more specific details in the proposal we published.
The selected technical writer will be supported by the Julia Language community, contributors to the Julia Language’s website, and two other technical writers (who will be paid a mentor honorarium through the funds received by Google).
