Are you an experienced writer who’s comfortable with all kinds of tech? Interested in a full-time job working from home?
What We’re Looking For
We’re looking for a developmental technical content editor to work with a group of freelance writers. Someone who can mentor other writers and shepherd articles from assignment through the idea generation and draft phases. You’d be assigning articles, helping writers find the right angle, helping flesh out outlines, reviewing the drafts of those articles, and guiding writers through the revisions you need.
While this is an editorial position, you won’t be responsible for copy editing the article, so you don’t need to be particularly experienced with line editing or proofreading. Instead, you’ll be working a bit earlier in the process and looking at whether the articles are accurate, well-organized, match what was actually assigned, and answers any questions they raise.
We’re really looking for a geek’s geek. You should have experience working with and writing about various platforms (Windows, macOS, Android, iPhone), applications (Microsoft Office, Chrome, etc.), and be able to keep up with new developments on those technologies.
Demonstrable experience writing on various technologies
Practical experience working with major operating systems (desktop and mobile) and applications, as well as a solid grasp of general technology
Ability to dive into new technology subjects and learn them quickly
Ability to work one-on-one with writers on shaping their articles, serving as part subject matter expert and part writing mentor
Experience working in WordPress preferable
Ability to work in a fast-paced environment
Detail oriented and deadline focused, with a get-things-done attitude
Strong attention to detail with emphasis on accuracy and quality
Ability to prioritize work to balance multiple projects and deadlines
Ability to work both independently and collaboratively as part of a team
Self-motivated with a positive attitude
Excellent verbal and written communication skills
Basic working knowledge of SEO principles is a plus
Assign articles to writers from a list we maintain
Generate new article ideas based on your own experience
Field writer pitches for article ideas
Help writers decide on the best angle for articles
