Senior Copy Editor

Position Summary

This Senior Copy Editor position is the best of both worlds: You’ll focus your sharply honed eagle eye on our print and digital copy to correct mistakes and style issues. Plus, you’ll have ample time to stretch your creative muscle by writing and editing stories. The team you’ll join creates a consumer-facing magazine and digital content, primarily focused on auto, travel and financial topics. In addition to having 100% responsibility for copyediting, you’ll also own specific stories — from conceptualization to writing and editing (captions, trimming, etc.) to pushing stories through the production process. You’ll be an integral member of the team as both a copy editor and content creator—participating in client calls, brainstorming sessions and more.

  •  Copyedit all copy for magazine and website
  •  Maintain our internal Style Guide and stay abreast of client and AP Style
  •  Write and/or edit a few stories bimonthly for the magazine and website
  •  Attend client calls and develop a deep working knowledge of the brand, its products and services

Job Qualifications

Education: Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism, English, or related field

Experience: Minimum of 5 years in the writing and editing industry or in the content-marketing industry. Some client work is helpful.

Skills:

  •  Exceptional copy editing, proofreading, writing and reporting skills required
  •  Excellent writing skills required, along with samples of previous work
  •  Must have a mastery of the mechanics of English—grammar, syntax, punctuation—and a sharp eye for editing and proofreading copy
  •  Must take pride in doing first-rate work, while understanding that we’re creating our client’s product, not your own
  •  Must have an inherent respect brand guidelines and brand “voice”
