iFixit's staff is the focal point of a global community showing people how to fix the things they own. We believe that we can make the world better by empowering people to take control of their hardware.

We are the world's foremost experts on Apple repair, and we've set the gold-standard for online repair documentation. We have already helped millions of people fix their own devices, and we plan to help tens of millions more.

We're looking for a technical writer/tinkerer to join in our repair effort by creating unparalleled teardowns and repair guides for electronics, cars, appliances, and just about anything else. The ideal candidate is technically oriented, has a passion for succinct communication, loves to take things apart, and fixes all their friends' stuff.

As the ideal candidate, you should:

  • Enjoy tinkering and fixing! You probably have a toolbox at home or in your car, and while you love having the right tool for the job, you've made-do on more than one occasion.
  • Have above-average mechanical and/or electrical aptitude. You don't need to be an EE, but a basic understanding of PCB design, integrated circuits, and experience reading datasheets goes a long way.
  • Keep up with news about new consumer electronics devices and manufacturers.
  • Enjoy working with people and communicating precisely and accurately. You should know the difference between precision and accuracy.
  • Have impeccable grammar, and an innate sense of what sounds good. Your innate sense should match ours, because we're right.
  • Feel compelled to combine creativity with pragmatism in your photography and writing.

    This position is available immediately at our downtown San Luis Obispo office. Remote opportunities are not available for this position. Apple industry experience is not necessary, neither is any specific degree.


    iFixit is an awesome place to work. Here are some of our perks.

    • Macbook Pro or equivalent, and any software you need
    • 100% employer-paid health insurance
    • 401k plan with 4% employer match
    • Profit sharing after a year of employment
    • Flexible vacation time
    • Free family-style lunches twice a week
    • Employer-run fitness and wellness program
    • A bike if you want to bike to work
    • A sweet pair of headphones to get your head in the game
    • Employee discounts on parts and tools
    • Company-sponsored BBQs, hangouts, and summits
    • Charitable contribution matching! We'll 100% match your tax deductible contributions to charity.
    • Did we mention you get to work in one of the happiest places in the world? Oprah said it, so you know it's true. Our office is located downtown within walking distance to everything!

    Diversity:

    Fixit is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. Because we are trying to teach every one to fix every thing, we need a team as diverse as our online community. We believe that it takes people of all backgrounds to help us fix the world. Therefore, iFixit does not discriminate based upon race, religion, color, national origin, gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions), sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, status as a protected veteran, status as an individual with a disability, or any of the other important characteristics that make us unique and valuable.

    iFixit is committed to creating a diverse team--not only in who we hire--but through creating a supportive environment for all of our team members based on mutual respect and inclusivity.
