An Australian technical magazine is looking for a replacement for their
technical editor, working from Sydney. I'm not interested in moving
there for a variety of reasons.
The previous editor has kind-of moved up in the organisation and is now
working from England. Her replacement has quit as an editor and moved
to Melbourne following his SWMBO's work and the smell of a programming
job, but continues to contribute as a writer.
AFAICT, the position entails some technical writing, some editing, and
some preparing the magazine for production. This year and last year the
holder of the position was flown to conferences and other events, so I
guess travel is more or less a part of the package. The magazine
publishes a range of technical material including both open source and
closed source tutorials, reviews and the like.
I know absolutely nothing in terms of details like pay and hours, but if
you're interested and think you might fit the position, please contact
Lisa (whom CC'ed) and ask lots of questions. Lisa is very open and
helpful, a pleasure to work with.
I'd put this on the job boards and leave it at that, but I gather that
they're expanding as a company anyway and so are short-handed and in a
hurry to find the right someone. If you want a chance to put your oar
in, I'm sure opportunities will arise as long as you do the job
If I've got any of this wrong, I'll publish addenda under the same
subject line in the next day or so.
