Job Requirements:

We are looking for a Features Editor who will assist the Features Director in producing five daily articles. This predominantly entails editing "raw" copy for grammar and style, as well as identifying problem areas, in terms of narrative and factual accuracy. The editor will then format copy in our custom CMS so that it conforms to preferred HTML practices and looks visually appealing.
The ideal candidate should have experience editing for grammar, tone, and publication-specific style. Knowledge of HTML, and the ability to quickly master a new CMS, is essential.

The ideal candidate must also have a good sense of narrative; he or she should be able to look at a well-written article and identify how to make it even better, either through additional subheads, flashier headlines, a tighter / sharper focus, etc. The candidate should feel comfortable selecting images that creatively illustrate the feature, and light photo editing may be required.

Other duties include tracking contracts and payments for our small team of freelancers, and liaising with writers to remedy content issues; organizational skills and a professional demeanor are key. Working remotely is possible, but the candidate must be available to work during a 9 am to 6 pm ET schedule.


Please include a cover letter along with your resume when applying for this job.
