My name is Mauricio and I'm currently hiring for a copy editor position at Coffeeness, Germany's biggest website all about coffee. The person would join our team for up to 40 hours hours per week, so pretty much a full time position if you're up for it. Coffeeness is not our only website so you'll likely be responsible for a variety of different topics mostly in B2C markets and we publish a lot of product reviews and roundups.
Unlike most publications, we test and review all products ourselves providing readers unique insights and a fresh perspective.
We have a strong aversion to a marketing style or sales-y tone. We prefer fewer words to many, and dislike the trend of using big words where little ones will do. However, we encourage our writers to have a creative voice, so you’ll need to know when to make edits for clarity and when to keep that special flair intact.
You will be required to provide feedback to writers. This can be tough at times, so you’ll need to be able to communicate well.
- One to five years of professional copy editing experience
- Ability to receive constructive feedback
- Strong communication skills
Desired Qualifications (Not Required):
- WordPress backend system
- Experience working with Google Docs
The selection process works as follows: Fill out the Google Form we’ve linked below. If we like what we see, we’ll get back to you. Feel free to apply in German. We’ll give you a short piece to edit and then do a short video interview.
Perks of working for us
Coffeeness is a fully remote team of freelance writers and editors, which means you can work from anywhere that has a WiFi connection. That’s just one benefit of working on our team.
Others include: a decent, quickly paid salary; a friendly editorial team; and relative freedom to plan your workweek as you see fit.
This is role is perfect for a German expat who's looking to join a creative and passionate team.
We’ll be paying you around $20 per hour, though we’re willing to negotiate upward for people with some solid experience.
