Seeking a Driven and Exacting Content Editor for Telecommute Position - writing / editing / translation - job employment

City: Portland
Date: 04 Aug 2017
Category: Writing / Editing

We're a marketing company that provides Search Engine Optimization and Thought Leadership services for companies nationwide, producing high-level content of genuine value for the public. We are seeking an experienced editor to join our team.

Our most successful editors are highly organized, deadline-driven, and creative individuals. Working remotely requires someone who is a self-starter, but not afraid to reach out for help when needed. The ideal candidate will be a meticulous individual who can communicate clearly, stay on top of many moving parts, and balance workflow and relationships between writers, clients, and management during all parts of the editorial process.

As an editor you will be responsible for the flow of content from start to finish, on several accounts. You will work with writers in developing topics and content in accordance with the requirements of the clients and campaigns. You will edit every piece of content that comes across your desk with an exacting eye, carefully applying your knowledge and company best practices. You will communicate with the account executives regularly. You will be responsible for the organization and maintenance of editorial calendars, regular deliverables, and special projects. You will work in WordPress or other content management systems as needed, uploading and creating pages. Your days will be busy and varied, and you will need to constantly reprioritize tasks to meet deadlines across multiple accounts.

If you have the energy and the know-how to do this each and every day, read on!


• A degree in English or practical experience in editing.
• Punctuality, professionalism, and excellent time management skills.
• A sharp eye that can spot errors and inconsistencies while also balancing the specific SEO needs of the accounts.
• Exceptional communication skills. You must be able to communicate professionally and regularly with writers, clients, account executives, management, and other members of the content team.
• A reliable internet connection and computer. All our work is done with online platforms, so you must be comfortable working on a computer all day.
• A positive and energetic attitude.
• Experience in WordPress or another CMS is preferred, but not required.

Depending upon your skillset, experience, and availability, this can be a part-time or full-time telecommute position. We strive to be the best at what we do and have a culture of learning and excellence--but also a little bit of fun. We offer competitive pay, and for full-time employees, we also offer two weeks of paid time off, one week of sick time, standard company holidays, and 401K.

To apply, please send a resume and a cover email explaining why your personality, professional strengths, and prior experience make you a good potential match for our firm. Please direct your message to the Managing Editor.

Our process:

We respond to all applicants with an e-mail pre-screen and request for references. Qualified candidates will proceed to a phone interview with our Managing Editor. Those asked to continue will then be given an editing test and participate in a second interview.

Thank you!
