There are some part time and casual vacancies at the moment. Please contact robyn at armadillosandwich dot com about these positions.


Sysadmin/Devops

Part time position to add, upgrade and maintain services on the Photographic Dictionary sites.

Requires knowledge of the following:

  • NGINX webserver, for both PHP and Ruby on Rails
  • Varnish
  • MySQL
  • General linux administration

Research Assistant

Part time position to populate content in the Photographic Dictionary.

Duties include:

  • Basic research to populate categories and words with unique content
  • Correcting any errors encountered in existing content
  • Finding suitable creative-commons photographs
  • Categorising content for internal searching and sorting
  • High levels of literacy required, native English speaker preferred.

Actors/Models

Seeking people of any size, shape or colour to be models or actors for the Photographic and Videographic dictionaries.

Videos are all around 10-15 seconds long and are generally done in one take outside with a phone rather than inside in a fancy studio. Most filming is happening in Sydney around Newtown, Sydney CBD or UNSW’s Kensington campus.

If you are interested, I am taking people as individuals or groups on an ongoing ad-hoc basis.

You can also film by yourself and send raw videos to me so I can add them to the site YouTube channel. Please get in touch first if you are interested in doing this as there tends to be a list of words that are required rather than accepting unsolicited content.

Paying $1 per video.
