Are you an experienced copy editor with at least three years of professional experience? Do you know the difference between AP and Chicago copy editing? Are you looking for part-time freelance work that you can do from anywhere? Do you like reading about cloud-based technology? If so, then this might be the role for you!
Who We Are
Cloudwards.net is a leading online publication providing information, news, articles and interviews for cloud-based software. We reach over 1,000,000 visitors monthly and continue to grow month after month.
We're looking to strengthen our editorial team by hiring another part-time copy editor who is ready to dive into the nitty-gritty edits of our articles. Our articles range from 1,000 words to (occasionally) 5,000 words, averaging around 2,500 words. They focus on cloud-based technology, including backup, storage, project management and VPNs.
About the Role
Cloudwards.net is looking to hire a part-time freelance copy editor to assist our current copy editor. The role would offer about 10-15 hours per week, with the potential to expand in the future. Our articles are edited based on AP style, with some adjustments for Cloudwards style.
Articles within the editorial flow will require prompt copy editing within 24 hours to make sure articles can be published on time.
Copy editors will go through a training period so they understand their responsibilities, Cloudwards’ style and how to interact with a fully remote editorial team.
- At least three years of professional copy editing experience, preferably with AP style.
- Must be able to adjust copy editing style to match Cloudwards’ style guides.
- Must be able to work independently but be able to communicate with the editorial team.
- Can work within Trello, Slack and Google Docs with the editorial team.
- Must be able to work in a timely manner so that editorial articles can be published on schedule.
Ideally should have an interest in cloud-based technology, like VPNs, cloud storage and project management.
