We're looking for an experienced copy editor to ensure clarity, eliminate verbosity, and serve as the last line of defense against inaccuracies in our daily business email, which has more than 1 million subscribers.
The ideal candidate will have experience working as a copy editor and fact-checker in an editorial environment. Must be familiar with AP style, have a strong understanding of business and technology issues, and be comfortable working on daily deadlines.
We're looking for someone to work Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday nights, typically between 5 and 8pm ET. A sense of humor, including a deep appreciation for Keanu Reeves, is helpful but not required.
ABOUT THE HUSTLE
We've built our business through three primary services:
The Daily, our witty, no-nonsense weekday email, and The Sunday, our long-form Sunday newsletter, which deliver smart takes on business and tech news to more than 1 million loyal subscribers. We also have a thriving events business that connects an entrepreneurial-minded audience with the world's most successful business founders.
We recently introduced a subscription email service, Trends, that highlights emerging business trends and how entrepreneurs can capitalize on them.
We're also experimenting with other digital products to meet our audience's needs.
