This is a contract position. 

OVERVIEW
You'll read and review an array of newsletter items, interviews, and reported stories for errors and other considerations across the B2B portfolio—Retail Brew, HR Brew, Marketing Brew, Healthcare Brew, CFO Brew, and Tech Brew, among others. You'll work with the assigning editor to maintain the integrity, accuracy, cohesiveness, and tone of all of our stories.

This job will require you to work cross-functionally with managing and assigning editors, other copy editors and fact-checkers, designers, growth and social leads, and engineers. Being a team player and getting along with peers is essential. You should also be flexible: We’re in high-growth mode at Morning Brew and a game-for-anything attitude is a must.

HERE'S WHAT YOU'LL BE WORKING ON
- Making sure stories adhere to Morning Brew’s style guide and overall tone
- Proofreading text and correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors for Morning Brew’s B2B/Professional verticals
- Verifying factual correctness of information, such as dates and statistics
- Fact-checking original reporting and stories, with experience working with editors and reporters to ensure that stories are as accurate as possible
- Ensuring stories are logically structured
- Working with editors to publish newsletters
- Updating Morning Brew's style guide as needed

QUALIFICATIONS
- 2+ years of experience copy editing and/or fact checking at a news or media publication—but if you don't have quite that experience, we'd still like to hear from you!
- Experience working with reporters and editors, preferably in the B2B space
- A sharp eye for detail, the ability to catch every spelling, grammar, and punctuation mistake
- Ability to manage multiple projects on a tight deadline
- Fluency with online publishing and organizational tools
- Strong written communication skills and the ability to work both independently and as part of a team
- An understanding of the importance of language

COMPENSATION $50-55/hr commensurate with experience.
