Expertise is a Seattle-based company that is changing the way people connect with local professionals. We are building a product that finds and features some of the best professionals throughout the United States, from lawyers to veterinarians to tutors.

The Role
We are looking for a remote freelance editor to join our team.

You'll be lightly editing short business descriptions for companies across the US. This involves reading through each assignment (list of 10+ business descriptions) and correcting grammar and formatting as well as editing lightly for tone and brand voice.

Your work will need to adhere to a simple style guide and content spec to match our style and voice. Attention to detail is important to ensure the business descriptions remain error-free and have no need for additional editing.

Qualifications
  • Native English speaker
  • Strong understanding of grammar, spelling, and punctuation
  • An eye for detail: ability to quickly pick out errors
  • Ability to read text for voice, tone, and logical flow
Compensation
As a contractor, you'll be paid $6 per assignment (one assignment is between 1200-1400 words). Most of our team spends 15-20 minutes per assignment, and compensation averages $15.00 - $20.00 / hr depending on how quickly you work.

If you're interested in the role, please send your resume and a three paragraph cover letter.
