Repair Researcher/Data Entry Clerk

San Luis Obispo, California, United States Part-time

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 Repair Researcher to join in our repair effort by curating repair content for electronics, cars, appliances, and just about anything else. The Repair Researcher will be in charge of seeking, evaluating and repurposing repair documentation. The position will include documentation review, data entry, and some technical writing. The ability to learn quickly, work independently and efficiently, and remember details is required. Integrity, reliability, and attention to detail are also a must. The ideal candidate is technically oriented, has a passion for succinct communication, is detail minded, and is unafraid to ask questions. Appliance repair or mechanic experience is a bonus, but not required.

This position is available immediately at our San Luis Obispo headquarters. We are looking to fill a part-time position effective immediately, working between 15-25 hours per week. We require any shift to be at least 3 hours, and scheduled between 9am and 5pm Monday through Friday.

  • To apply: Send us a PDF of your resume as well as a PDF cover letter explaining two things: why you're badass, and why you're the ideal candidate for this job.
