Just an FYI: while Instructables isn't mentioned by name, the latest PopSci mag (Feb 2014) has a profile of Carl Bass (Autodesk CEO) and the Pier 9 workshop is mentioned in the article...

In the printed article, there should be a little tiny mention that is off to the side in a text box.

As long as you can get the appropriate visas, I don't see why not.

Why not apply? The worst you will get is a polite refusal.

Dopy question, but, now that this topic has popped up again, are these vacancies still current?

Apart from interns, is there a specific deadline?

If you read the full post;

"For summer 2013, we only have internship positions open for software engineering.  You must currently be in an undergraduate or graduate program to qualify."

I did see that. I was more interested by the opportunities beyond 2013.

"Instructables is seeking interns of all shapes and sizes! We're looking for people who take good pictures, write well, and want to share their knowledge and help us manage the community."

I would totally do this Summer 2013 if I happened to live near Alemeda or Instructables HQ... of course, ya know, labor laws do interfere sometimes. And the fact that I live 800 miles away so commute would be a pain to say the least....

Hello MR. Kiteman!

Is there an age limit for the job? :D We would like to help out for free, just for instructables to be better place! I've been an instructable fan at the age of 10. Me and my friends have some programming capabilities, well we study in a Academics&Technical School. Building projects and programming is our hobby (HTML, CSS, JAVA, JQuery ,C++, Arduino), hope to spend my free time reaching out for some help :)))))

You're 13, right?

I don't know Californian employment law, but in the UK you would be old enough for paid work, like a paper round or helping in a shop, as long as it did not interfere with school work, and as long as your school is satisfied that the work is safe.

So, what you need to do is find out what the legal position is in San Francisco (somebody at school should be able to help with that). Regarding safety, there are no tools at HQ more dangerous than those you'll use in "shop" lessons.

Assuming that goes well, you will then need to a proposal together for Ewihelm, the boss. Say what you could help with, what skills you have, maybe even suggest projects you could do independently.

Words of warning, though:

You need to remember that HQ is not a school or youthclub - the staff there are very friendly, some of the coolest people you'll ever meet, but they have their own jobs to do, and will not be able to monitor you and your safety as closely as you may be used to.

Having said that, good luck.

Actually I'm 14. Thanks for the fast reply though! Oh I forgot to tell you, actually I live in the Philippines, pretty far from the US. I was thinking more of a home job (on the desk), like being the one to manage guide entries (source code improvements), sending some ideas and visual improvements (emailing the HQ codes). It would be fun to work with people in the HQ though.

I just realize that there's a certain section in ibles, I haven't gone into, the forum section! Well I could probably post articles about site improvements :))) I Guess the forum section doesn't get viewers as much as the ible guides.

- Thanks

I doubt they would be able to organise that as official position, but there's nothing stopping you sending suggestions for improvements via the feedback section.

Yeah...

To be fair, Instructables is certainly not the same as it was in those days*, and I am not at all the same person I was back then. :)

*Or perhaps as it was portrayed, I suppose.

It would be unnatural for the site to remain unchanging for so long, but I do believe that the heart & soul of the site are still there, behind the updates.

I'm afraid if there were one internship left and both of you were standing there for the interview, I'd have to give it to....
