I’m Hiring a Remote PHP Contractor at Twilio

We’re hiring

You’re probably here because you’ve seen or heard about this tweet:

Joining Twilio last year as the first PHP Developer for Technical Content has given me the awesome opportunity to build something much larger than myself: Twilio’s PHP Community Tutorials program.

This is where we invite members of the PHP community, at all skill levels, to create something with Twilio’s APIs, write a tutorial for others to learn from, and pay them $500 USD for their time. (Yes you can join today and write as many times as you want!)

A Job for Technical Writers

We’re committed to publishing high-quality tutorials that rally and prompt PHP developers to build the future of communications. As a result of that commitment, our tutorials have millions of views per year and developers become more confident using their programming language of choice with Twilio’s APIs.

To make that happen, it takes a lot of hard work to review the tutorials submitted from all over the world. That’s why I could use your help for 15-20 hrs per week in the editorial process.

Who are we hiring?

I am looking to add an experienced PHP Developer as a long-term contractor and technical editor to our team who has:

  • Thorough knowledge of PHP (v7+ is preferred)
  • Proficiency with object-oriented programming
  • The ability to write secure and performant code
  • 2+ years experience working with PHP (or proficiency in a major PHP framework such as Laravel, WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Symfony, ExpressionEngine, etc.)
  • Experience with (and enjoyment of) technical writing

In addition, the best candidate will be expected to be/have:

  • Strong writing skills (as this is a technical writing position)
  • Strong communication skills
  • Fluency in English (our tutorials are all in English)
  • Ability to prioritize workloads and meet deadlines

Are There Any Restrictions?

  • This is a contract position.
  • Contract length and compensation are available upon request.
  • The position is remote but we can hire people in most (but not all) locations in the world. I’m happy to clarify whether we can hire in your specific location.

Become a Twilio Tutorial Author to Apply

My team and I were wondering what’s the best way we can give candidates a taste of the job and it hit us: let you see both sides! Go through writing a high-quality tutorial teaching a PHP concept for our Twilio Community Tutorials program and experience it from a writer’s perspective.

This way, we’re able to see exactly how you’ll fit in a technical writing role at Twilio and you’ll have the opportunity to be a published author on one of the most read technical blogs on the Internet (4.1 Million pageviews last year).

Keep in mind that every post may not be published due to our standards. If you complete and publish a tutorial, we will compensate you $500 for your time. If you’re in a country where we can’t currently hire, we’ll still compensate you for your time in writing and publishing a post (PayPal account required).

If you’re ready to apply, complete the following form to begin the application process. Thank you for your interest and I look forward to meeting you!

NOTE: I will follow up via email to approve your topic. Please don’t begin your article before submitting the application.

Completing this form does not guarantee an interview or employment. $500 USD will only be paid to applicants who complete the interview process of writing and publishing a tutorial for the Twilio PHP Community Tutorials program.  Unpublished tutorials will not be compensated. Twilio has the right to close the application process at any given time without an announcement.

Twilio is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and is an affirmative action employer. We are committed to equal opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, gender, gender identity, parental or pregnancy status, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, or Veteran status and operate in compliance with the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance.

Sure. I always recommend taking a Twilio API you find interesting and merging it with a PHP framework or 3rd Party API that you are familiar with.

Looks cool! Thanks for the opportunity to apply.

I’m not extra heavy on the PHP side. I have worked with it and WordPress a good amount. I always welcome learning more about most programming languages and have successfully done so with several languages by writing about them.

I’ve done a substantial amount of tech editing and authoring for several well known, major publishers.

Thanks for your time and consideration.

lately I have finished preparing my ultimate tutorial:

+++ [Beginner’s Guide] How To Make A Website From Scratch +++

I would really apprecaite your feedback, so I can improve my craft.


If you know someone who may benefit from reading it, I would be really grateful for sharing a link.

Much love from Poland!

Hello ,

I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks really nice!
I’m also interested in this topic + have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
Can you recommend something what works best for you?

Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve:
(Recently I have added a new page about Rockwall Investments and the way how normal people can make money with this company.)

I wanted to subscribe to your newsletter, but I couldn’t find it. Do you have it?

Hope to hear from you soon.

Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

mate your site is really cool, but it has a poor Domain Authority
sad truth is that sites with poor Domain Authority won’t rank high in Google and in result get very little of traffic
I had the same problem in the past and my website didn’t rank high in Google
I searched for a professional who would help me with it; found one guy who really helped me rank higher in Google and increase my Domain Authority to 58! I’m super happy with this score
Contact him: (his prices are very reasonable for the service he provides)

You are well aware that most of us have very great opportunities to change ourselves in such a way that our goals become more achievable.

To do this, you can go to trainings and get an impulse to move towards your goal.

But what to do if there is no financial or other opportunity to participate in trainings?

Is it possible to change yourself to become more efficient?

In addition, the coach may simply not give the changes that you need.

For example, your work is related to sales, but you do not get pleasure from sales. You know everything about sales, but you have no enthusiasm to engage in this activity. Therefore, you sell worse than your colleagues, who sell and enjoy the process.

Can you love the sales process? After all, no one training you do not give such changes.

It turns out that such technology of internal changes and discoveries in the qualities you need is available. It is called Technology Self-Transformation of the Person.

Read about this unique technology in the book Start Your Life Again. 4 steps to a new reality “on the site

The author of the technology has devoted more than 20 years to the research of those internal barriers that prevent us from being effective on the way to our goals. And determined the most correct sequence of independent actions that will allow us to achieve our goals.

No consultants, no trainers, you work on yourself independently. Try it and make sure it works.

I’ve been visiting your website a few times and decided to give you some positive feedback because I find it very useful. Well done.

I was wondering if you as someone with experience of creating a useful website could help me out with my new site by giving some feedback about what I could improve?

You can find my site by searching for “casino gorilla” in Google (it’s the gorilla themed online casino comparison).

I would appreciate if you could check it out quickly and tell me what you think.

Thank you for help and I wish you a great week!


Must say your website looks quite ok. Good job.
However, if you want your website to be really successful, then make sure you use the best tools to optimize your online content.
Otherwise it won’t be on the top of Google search results and no-one will know about it. I’m sure you didn’t create this website to just be online, but to attract new people/customers.

Few months ago my friend convinced me to use tools from below article and I have to say it helped me soo much:

I hope it will help you as well.
Keep up the good work and you will eventually build a big online business.

I want to fuck real pussy! Hook me up with escorts, prostitutes, whores, hookers and call girls! From time to time we all need something new in our lives and to be more precise, we need a fresh woman (or transsexual?) to take us to higher grounds than our girlfriends or wives. Maybe we just want to impress our co-workers and business partners with a luxury companion at a Las Vegas party or do you want to have a sex vacation in Thailand? I recommend traveling to Bangkok, Phuket, and Pattaya for the girlfriend (or ladyboy) experience or for sex tourism!

Great work! This is the type of info that should be shared around the internet. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher! Come on over and visit my website . Thanks =)

After reading your blog post, I browsed your website a bit and noticed you aren’t ranking nearly as well in Google as you could be. I possess a handful of blogs myself, and I think you should take a look at “seowebsitetrafficnettools”, just google it. You’ll find it’s a very lovely SEO tool that can bring you a lot more visitors and improve your ranking. They have more than 30+ tools only 20$. Very cheap right? Keep up the quality posts

Good day to you,
My name is Abogados Belzuz Larruy, a Spanish lawyer. I have previously sent you a message regarding a transaction worth $ 10.5 million left by my late client before his tragic death.
I am contacting you once again because after going through your profile, I strongly believe that you will be in a better position to execute this business transaction with me.
If you are interested, I wish to point out that after the transaction I want 10% of this money to be donated among charity organizations while the remaining 90% will be shared between us thus 45% each.
This transaction is 100% risk free; please respond to me as soon as possible through my private email for more explanations about the transaction.
Yours Faithfully,

Hi, I do believe this is a great web site.

I stumbledupon it 😉 I will revisit yet again since I saved as a favorite it.

rich and continue to help others.
