Mr. Hiring Manager
We are looking for an intern or entry-level candidate – preferably residing in NYC -- available 10 hours per week for a minimum of six months (following an initial trial period). You should have a strong analytical mindset and an interest in making things work efficiently.

Pay is above minimum wage but modest, commensurate with our status as a new, early-stage startup with no outside funding. Hours may increase over time. Join us and help build something special.


Startups are crazy; help us tame the beast and keep things running smoothly. Responsibilities vary widely and are mainly operational and administrative – handling lots of details. We plan to divide duties among several individuals based on their strengths.

Examples of responsibilities include:

-Help assign (“match”) new client projects to suitable freelance writers
-Facilitate key milestones in the editorial process (e.g., submissions, revisions); ensure deadlines are met
-Keep diligent records in Salesforce, following step-by-step processes
-Edit and proofread materials
-Invoice clients and track payments
-Manage database of writing samples
-Interact with clients and writers (via email and phone)

Also note: As we do not yet have office space, you would be expected to work some of the hours out of a home office on Bleecker Street (near NYU); the other portion may be spent working remotely.


Since most tasks revolve around account/project management, you should be highly organized and meticulous about details.

Ideally, you should also be a strong writer and editor.
