Job Description

LWN.net is seeking a full-time technical journalist to provide high-quality coverage of the Linux and free-software communities for our readers.  This is an opportunity to be a part of a community that has changed the world and is far from finished.  LWN has been covering this community from within since 1998.

Responsibilities will include finding and researching topics, writing articles on a regular schedule, reviewing articles written by others, interacting with readers, and traveling to and reporting from community events.  Additionally, we all take part in the tasks of running the business and making important decisions about where we are trying to go.

Requirements include:

  • A university degree in technical writing, engineering, or the sciences, or equivalent experience.
  • Top-level English writing and editing skills.
  • The willingness and ability to work remotely full-time.
  • An understanding of free software and the communities that create it.
  • A willingness to take on a wide range of challenges in a small-company environment.

We would also like to see:

  • A demonstrated history of writing for a highly technical audience.
  • Software development experience, especially in the form of contribution to one or more free-software projects.
  • Experience with web technologies and web-site design.
  • Python development experience.

LWN is located in Colorado, but we are willing to consider applicants from anywhere in the US who can legally work here.  Compensation includes participation in our health and 401(k) retirement plans.
