Write for Ambassador Labs
We want to empower developers everywhere to code, ship, and run apps for Kubernetes faster and easier than ever. We do this by providing Kubernetes tools to support developers and by sharing knowledge through educational, hands-on & opinionated content. But we can’t accomplish our mission alone – we need your help!
By creating content with us, you will be helping thousands of cloud native developers excel in their jobs while also improving your writing skills. Want to join us? 👇
Here's how the process works:
Submit this form to indicate interest in participating in our guest author program. We will review your application and contact you to discuss the next steps.
You will be expected to write the first draft of your article (up to 1,500 words) on Dropbox paper and submit it to us. The material must be original i.e. you can’t simply take an article you’ve already published and send it to us.
Get professional editing and feedback from our editorial team. You’d be expected to implement the editor’s feedback before we publish your article.
Your article will be published on our blog and publicized on our social channels.
5. Get Paid
Once your article has been published, you will be paid $300.
What can you write about?
We expect these tutorials to help readers understand how to use existing or new open source cloud native technologies.
Do you have a strong opinion on something in the cloud native industry and the research to back it up? Pitch it to us; we’d love to publish it on our blog.
Longer articles that deeply explain a subject (tool, language, framework). This type of content serves as a reference point that people will come back to from time to time.
If you or your company learned something insightful from a particular open source cloud native technology that you think would benefit others in our industry, pitch this to us.
Perks and what to expect
Sharing knowledge is incredible. But you know what’s even more incredible? Getting paid while sharing knowledge 😉 As a guest author, you will be offered up to $300 per article.
