We’re Hiring: Be an iFixit Video Host!

Hi, it’s me MJ with iFixit, and today I have an exciting announcement. Have you ever watched our YouTube channel and thought, “I can totally do MJ’s job?” Well, now’s your chance! We’re looking to add another host to our video team, so if you’re into technology, love the DIY repair community, and are super comfortable talking to tons of strangers on camera, we want to hear from you.

We’re looking for someone who is passionate about our mission. Though we’re best-known for our gadget teardowns, why we do what we do extends far beyond that. It’s our mission to empower people to repair everything, and this goal has global ramifications. The repair manuals we publish for free have helped millions of people repair their gadgets—and that saves them tons of money, and slows the cycle of consumption. We love that.

Plus, when people choose repair over throwing something away and buying a new one, they’re extending the usable life of that particular thing, and keeping it from ending up in a landfill in India or Africa, where it leaches toxic chemicals into groundwater, or where children burn away the exterior cases of devices, and inhale toxic fumes in the process. Repair helps fix the world.

Fighting e-waste

So, if you get riled up by unsustainable design and the global impact of consumption, toss your hat in the ring as an advocate, and apply for this position. The position is located in San Luis Obispo, California (that’s where our office and recording studio is). Check out the job posting. If you think you’d be a good fit, shoot a short video introducing yourself to us, and let us know why you want to join our team. When you’re done, send a link to your video and your resume to videohost@ifixit.com.

If we like what we see, we’ll be in touch! I can’t wait to see what you all have to say, and look forward to hopefully working alongside one of you here in our studio.
