Are you a meticulous, deadline-driven editor on a crusade to transform clunky copy into persuasive prose? Do you enjoy working in a collaborative environment to create engaging content for a range of audiences and industries? Are you interested in helping brands increase their reach by telling their stories—not selling their products? Awesome. Come join our team.
Skyword is seeking an individual with 1–3 years of full-time, professional editing experience to join our Content Services team in support of our clients’ content marketing programs. The ideal candidate must be detail-oriented with exceptional line and copy editing skills, strong research skills, and the ability to edit B2B and B2C topics for a variety of clients using both Chicago and AP styles.
Note, while writers with relevant experience as mentioned above are welcomed to apply, this is not a copywriting position.
By joining Skyword, you will have the opportunity to be an integral part of a fast-growing organization with significant opportunity for advancement. This role would be connected to our Boston Office.
