About Your Role:
As a contract Copy Editor for Brides, MyDomaine, and Byrdie, you will join our Quality Team to improve the work of our remote editors and fact-checkers, who update existing articles to enhance the reader experience. You will review the work of remote editors, ensuring all articles meet quality standards, follow project instructions, and adhere to brand guidelines. You will also offer new and veteran editors feedback and revisions to improve the overall editing process.
This is a full-time, contract position. The successful applicant must live in the New York City metro area and be available to make weekly visits to our Midtown Manhattan offices.
About Your Contributions:
- You will review and edit updated articles, ensuring that the editor’s update work follows the specific project instructions, the brand’s and Dotdash’s guidelines, and puts the reader first—all while meeting Dotdash’s standard for quality content.
- You will coach newly hired editors throughout their first few projects, providing them feedback on each article they update and notes for revisions, when necessary.
- You will spot check veteran editors’ work to ensure it still meets Dotdash standards, and provide them with feedback.

- You’re able to easily adopt an established brand voice, and you adhere to strict brand and style guidelines like a pro.

- You’re comfortable working in a content management system and can work quickly, independently, and accurately.
- You are an excellent communicator and are comfortable giving feedback, whether positive or negative, to a team member.
- Local or able to make weekly visits to our Manhattan offices
