RE: We are hiring - Technical writer

Hi Jakub,

I'm reaching out with great excitement about the technical writer position you've posted. My passion for 3D printing, combined with my extensive experience in creating easy-to-understand guides and troubleshooting content, aligns perfectly with your needs. I've been involved in several projects that required deep knowledge of 3D printing technologies, materials, and procedures, making me quite familiar with the intricacies of the field. Additionally, my fluency in English and experience with DSLR photography will allow me to contribute high-quality content for the community. I'm eager to share my portfolio and discuss how I can contribute to your team.

Looking forward to the opportunity to discuss further.

Best regards,

The post that doesn't actually answer any of those questions?

Are you just an automated response system?

Have you found someone?
Are you flooded with applicants?
Where is the job based?

The post that doesn't actually answer any of those questions?

No I am not an Automated response system,  I am one of the moderators on this forum, as shown on my previous post

I believe the original post  described Where the job is located 

  • preferably based in the Czech Republic

The original post described the preferred contact method
Are you interested? Send me an e-mail to jakub[DOT]dolezal[AT]prusa3d[DOT]com. Introduce yourself, describe your experience, share your projects and I will get in touch.

the original post was dated 

Posted : 26/01/2021

Which is over three years ago. 

Jakub has not posted any follow-up requests, which suggests that there is no longer a need for additional technical writers. 

However, if you actually follow the contact request instructions from the original post, Jakub may be able to answer your questions directly

Regards 
Joan

Maybe you should muse on the meaning of the word "Preferably", but that was not the most significant of the questions.

Taking the post down, or amending the post to say that the vacancy was filled would suggest that there is no longer a need.
Leaving it up suggests they are still looking.

However, if you actually follow the contact request instructions from the original post, Jakub may be able to answer your questions directly

Which would likely be a waste of my time and his, whereas a simple question and answer on a public forum would answer it for everybody.

Perhaps your desire for accuracy would be best discussed with the person who wrote the post in the first place, as it is not My responsibility to answer for others. 

I am not able to interpret "Preferably" on behalf of the original poster.   that would be a discussion for you and him. which would be better discussed in a private medium, such as email. I do know from experience that at least one member of the Prusa staff was originally based in the USA and is now based in Prague so Obviously there is some flexibility and job satisfaction within the Prusa employment environment. 

Your second post on this subject could have read something like, 
"Thank you, I Missed the email address  and the preferred location, when I first read the post.  I will contact Jakub and discuss the remaining queries with him" 

Maybe there is still a need for Technical writers, and maybe the "gatekeeper" is the ability to read and understand  the information contained in the invitation.
again, I am a moderator, not a mind reader.

Regards Joan

Maybe, but personally I would prefer to hire someone who asks pertinent questions and takes the best path to the relevant information.

RE:

Hello,

I read the post!

The entire post!

Even the last paragraph!

I think I must be the first to do so!

Do I win a prize?  Free filament?  Free printer?  All-expense paid trip to get a personal tour of PrusaLand buy none other than JP?

I am not really interested in the position, so have not reached out (sent an emai) to Jakob…

But, I do want to get in on all this wonderful dialogue about wanting the position, wondering if the position is still open, asking if one should apply, speculating if “Joan” is Siri or Alexa’s relative and just becoming part of this wonderful drama!
