Part-time Editorial Assistant

Does inconsistent sentence structure send chills down your spine? How about gratuitous exclamation points? Do you compulsively edit signage, news articles, or grandma’s hand-written notes? What are your thoughts on serial commas?

This position is a part-time role and would require 15-20 hours/week and has the possibility of becoming a full-time, benefited position for the right candidate. The right candidate will be a writer first, and a marketer second.

  • Support on-going content marketing initiatives
  • 1-2 years editorial experience
  • BA in English, Communications, or Journalism
  • Meticulous proofreading skills and attention to detail
  • Familiarity with AP style
  • Impeccable grammar, but flexible enough to know when to bend or break the rules
  • Exceptional organizational skills
  • Flexible writing style
  • Passion for travel, cars, and the sharing economy

To apply, please submit your resumé and two relevant writing samples. If selected, you will be asked to do a sample assignment and take a proofreading test.
