TMG, the quality leader in custom media, seeks an on-site copy editor with at least six (6) years’ experience copyediting magazine and web content for its long-tenured, award-winning staff. The successful candidate must be a meticulous, well-rounded editorial professional and will be based in our Washington, D.C., headquarters.

The TMG copy editor reviews periodical, digital and collateral content for grammar, style, tone and factual accuracy, and may provide markup via handwritten proofreader’s/editor’s marks, digital tracking, PDF commenting and/or CMS versioning.

A successful candidate will be well-versed in grammatical, editorial, digital content and typographic conventions; be conversant with major style guides such as AP, Chicago and AMA; and be a demonstrably skilled collaborator with managing editors, project managers, writers, copywriters and clients.

The ability to perform editorial proofreading, substantive editing and production/design proofreading is a strong plus.
