Copy Editor

New York, NY
Editorial
Full-time
Reorg provides breaking news and market-moving intelligence along with cutting-edge technology and data for hedge funds, investment banks and law firms. We are changing the way that professionals access opaque or complex information, and we are always looking for bright minds to join us on that mission.

The U.S. copy editor will perform final edits and publish a high volume of stories from reporters, financial analysts and legal analysts who cover distressed debt and bankruptcy situations. The job is to edit for clarity, grammar and sense, eliminate typos, make complex information as clear as possible and format stories in our content management system. The successful candidate must enjoy working in a fast-paced, dynamic environment under tight deadlines. The role is full time and will likely involve some degree of staggered working hours in light of the fact that we publish from 6 a.m to 7 p.m.

We currently have two copy editors in the New York office and one in London. Copy editors in New York report to the managing editor. U.S. copy editors may be called upon to assist with our European, Asian and M&A coverage. Our New York office is home to 80 employees and the headquarters of our 130-person, and growing, company.
