Job Requirements As one of our senior editors, you will work alongside production managers, publishing staff and our wide variety of clients. We are a custom print and online publishing and marketing-communications firm with high standards and expect the best from each member of the company. Every publication, website and collateral project is produced with the greatest care and attention to detail and, of course, always on time and on budget.

As a senior editor, you will be responsible for all assigned content; ensuring the excellence of all publications and assignments while trafficking content for assigned publications; editing the content to conform to each client-specific style guide; content placement in the issue and, when necessary, conferring about layout and changes with the designer and client(s); reviewing multiple proofs of each issue; and corresponding with the client for editorial meetings and regarding changes to the proof. In addition, the position will require you to write articles for client publications (including attending occasional events and taking photos) and assist with in-house projects such as press releases, social media, proposals, meetings, email blasts, website development, and more.

- Find/suggest/develop content for client-specific publications
- Write compelling copy for a variety of media
- Meet deadlines
- Follow client-specific guidelines to the letter
- Accurately research quantifiable data

This is a dynamic position. Rather than focusing only on one or two magazines, the senior editor will be expected to thrive in the perpetual hub of activity that is client-driven and has high standards, deadlines, new challenges, and creative opportunities.

We need you to have:
- Minimum 5 years publishing/agency experience
- Superior writing and strategic thinking skills
- Knowledge of style guides (AP)
- Social media experience
- Proficiency in Microsoft Word and other programs
- Technical proofreading experience is preferable
- Ad agency background, project management, and client contact experience is a plus!
