The PyImageSearch blog has grown a lot since I published that first post back in January 2014. It’s been an incredible journey and I have you, the reader, to thank for all the support over the past 2.5 years.
However, due to the whirlwind growth of PyImageSearch, I now receive 100+ emails per day — and it’s gotten to the point where I can’t keep up with them all.
Believe it or not, I have been the only employee of PyImageSearch for the past 2.5 years — and I’ve personally answered each and every email I’ve received during that time.
Interacting with you is honestly one of the highlights of my day.
Have you emailed me a question, no matter how basic or advanced, regarding computer vision?
Yep, I answered it.
Did you email me, asking about Practical Python and OpenCV? Or inquiring regarding the PyImageSearch Gurus course?
I was the one who responded.
Did you need technical support of some kind?
I was there offer assistance.
But due to the volume, it has gotten to the point where I need a correspondence coordinator to come in and help me:
- Prioritize and triage emails and inquiries.
- Answer general questions and comments regarding content on the PyImageSearch blog.
- Point readers in the right direction if they have a question you can answer.
- Categorize more advanced questions/business inquiries that you cannot answer for me to personally respond to.
In short, the primary role of this job consists of two elements:
- Help me answer questions regarding computer vision and OpenCV.
- Categorize incoming emails and questions, so I have a clear, prioritized view when I login to respond.
This will help me serve the PyImageSearch community even more, since I’ll be able to focus on the tasks that specifically need my experience and expertise.
- Part time: 2-4 hours per day, every day Monday-Friday
- Paid on an hourly rate (this is flexible — I will consider a fixed weekly or monthly payment as well)
- Work remotely
- Compensation based on experience ($25-$55 per hour, depending on experience)
Of course, if you’re an exceptional fit for this position, the roles of and responsibilities for this job can grow as well. Think of this as your entry point to working with me.
SKILLS AND REQUIREMENTS
To be successful in this role, you need to have the following skills and qualities:
- You hold yourself to high standards.
- You have STRONG written and verbal communication skills in the ENGLISH language.
- You have previous experience in computer vision (the more experience, the better).
- You have knowledge of the OpenCV library and have used it in previous projects (the more experience, the better).
- You have the ability to write clear, coherent responses to questions involving computer vision, image processing, and OpenCV.
- You enjoy answering questions, providing feedback, offering suggestions, and really helping people.
- You are professional in your responses.
- You can maintain a positive attitude when responding to questions.
- You have basic Python programming skills.
- You have basic Unix experience.
BONUS POINTS IF:
- You are a long-time reader of the PyImageSearch blog.
- You have read through the Practical Python and OpenCV book.
- You have graduated from the PyImageSearch Gurus course.
- You have earned a college-level degree with coursework/final project/thesis involving computer vision, or similar real world experience.
- You have an awesome StackOverflow reputation.
- You have experience with the Raspberry Pi.
AM I RIGHT FOR THIS JOB?
You are the right person for this job if:
- You enjoy computer vision and like helping others.
- You want to work with a successful entrepreneur in a small company — and help shape the future of PyImageSearch.
Taking this job is more than answering questions regarding computer vision, image processing, and OpenCV. It’s a chance to work with me and learn from me. You don’t have to be an entrepreneur yourself to apply for this job, but I would expect that you’re interested (at some level) in startups and small business.
WHEN DOES THIS JOB START?
As soon as possible — I am targeting mid-August as a start date, but I will be flexible if you have circumstances that prevent you from starting then (you have to be the right fit for the job, of course).

I’ll be accepting applications until July 31st at 11:59PM EST, so make sure you get your applications in by then!
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I APPLY?
After you apply, I’ll be personally reviewing your application.
From there, I’ll follow up with you over email, ask any additional questions, and if necessary, set up a formal interview, etc., normally within 3-4 days.
I’ll also be asking you to answer a few sample emails to get a feel for your writing style and computer vision/OpenCV knowledge. Don’t worry, there aren’t any “right” or “wrong” responses to these examples — I just need to get a feeling of how you write and interact with others. If you applied, be sure to keep an eye on your inbox for this next series of emails!

I know I have missed the deadline but please consider this. I am quite a late bloomer when it comes to your website. Unlucky me!
I would like to volunteer and work along with your team in this awesome adventure. Right now, I am doing my MS in United States in Signal Processing. I am a computer vision and machine learning enthusiast. I love python and raspberry pie.
Please consider my application as I really want to volunteer. I need no payment and will work 2-4 hrs a day or as flexible.
Thank you for the chance. I really appreciate it.
