A Job for You at The Big Money

Slate's business site is looking for a part-time copy editor.

Slate sister site The Big Money has an immediate need for a part-time copy editor in its New York office for 20 hours a week (preferably five days per week, hours flexible). The copy editor will be responsible for applying Associated Press and house style to articles and blog entries (for several very active blogs) as well as doing some fact-checking and correcting grammatical, usage, and typographical errors on tight daily deadlines in a Drupal publishing system. (You don't need to know Drupal to apply.) The position demands quick and accurate copy-editing; familiarity with AP style; and excellent grammar, usage, and spelling skills. Two years of editing experience in an online or print environment under daily deadline pressure is preferred. Candidates must also be flexible and able to work independently, keep an even keel during busy times, balance many projects at once, prioritize tasks in order to meet deadlines, be at ease with technology, and be able to manage and respond to a large quantity of daily e-mail. A four-year degree in journalism, English, technical communications, or a related field is preferred. An interest in business journalism would be ideal. For the right candidate, there may also be some writing, blogging, and/or editing opportunities. The Slate Group is an equal-opportunity employer and offers a competitive hourly rate. To apply, please send a cover letter and résumé to slatecejob@gmail.com  by July 31, 2010.
