Are you a meticulous, deadline-driven editorial professional on a crusade to rid the world of clunky copy and fill it with persuasive prose? Do you enjoy working in a collaborative environment to create engaging content that forges lasting relationships between brands and audiences? Are you interested in helping brands increase their reach by telling their stories—not selling their products? Super. Come join our team.
Skyword is seeking an individual with 3+ years of full-time, professional editorial experience to join our Content Services team in support of our clients’ content marketing programs. The ideal candidate must be detail-oriented with exceptional developmental and line editing skills, possess impeccable editorial judgement and an eye for quality, and display strong project management, communication, and collaboration skills. Experience editing content for B2B technology, financial, or medical audiences is preferred but not a requirement.
While writers with relevant experience as mentioned above are welcome to apply, this is not a copywriting position.
By joining Skyword, you will have the opportunity to be an integral part of an industry-leading organization. This role would be connected to our Boston office.
A little bit more about the role
The Editorial Manager is a highly organized and skilled editor with experience working closely with writers and clients to craft exceptional content.

In collaboration with professional services managers and editors, the Editorial Manager owns developmental editing, proofing, and writer coaching, recruitment, and engagement for assigned accounts.
