We’re not accepting anyone new right now, but we’ll keep all applications in our database for the future.

Our staff will triage and review your application when we’re back to onboarding folks.


Hit Subscribe is a company that hires engineers to write content for technical blogs. So what we’re looking for is quite straightforward: engineers interested in a side hustle writing technical content for companies that sell to engineers. Or, put more simply, we want you to write content (mostly blog posts) about technical topics like DevOps, automated testing, machine learning, security, and more.

If you like writing blog posts (or think you might, and have been meaning to start your own technical blog) let’s talk.

This opportunity is:

  • 100% remote.
  • An extremely flexible side hustle where you can make up to $400 per post.
  • A chance to get immediately in front of a large audience.
  • A chance to cross-post content to your own blog (while getting paid for that content).
  • Great for building relationships in the industry, with our clients and other authors.
  • Excellent for helping with your brand and positioning, whether an employee or a freelancer/contractor.

Our writing needs tend to be quite variable from one week to the next. So if you’re interested in writing for us, here is the process:

  1. Fill out the form below to apply. Include information about your tech and writing experience. Please send us a link to a writing sample or a blog post that you’ve written.
  2. If it looks like a good fit, we’ll onboard you, and get you going on your first, actual, paid post.
  3. Please note that we don’t interview or screen candidates beyond what you put in the application form, so the first post is a mutual trial. Your first post doesn’t need to be perfect by any stretch, but there is a zero-tolerance policy for being late at any point in the drafting process, plagiarism, or claiming subject matter expertise you don’t actually have. (This rarely happens–please don’t be intimidated.)
  4. From there, you’re an officially onboarded author!
