Description

Treehouse is seeking freelance writers who can craft engaging features and lifestyle stories about the web development world and the people who live in it. We’re an education platform that teaches design and development to students just starting out, those sharpening their skills and everyone in between.

This is a work-from-anywhere freelance position. Stories are paid competitively on a per-piece basis, depending on subject and scope.

We’re particularly interested in personable, fun, upbeat and polished stories that highlight trends in web careers and the industry. Here’s an example: ‘It Is Never Too Late’: How a Teacher and an Artist Switched to Web Careers in Midstream

Our audience is primarily developers and designers, but we’re attracting a broader readership that’s learning new skills. Stories published on Treehouse might include interviews with highly successful designers, a close look at computer-programmer demographics or a piece on why a career in software development is a solid bet.

Candidates should have:

- experience writing feature and lifestyle stories and profiles
- a knack for employing colorful anecdotes and important statistics
- a basic understanding of web technology — but you don’t need to be an expert
- a compelling voice and clean, intelligible copy
- competence interviewing experts and everyday folks
- an imagination and a comfort pitching stories
