Descripción de la oferta

Life is too short to work for a boring company, so why don’t you join us? We are looking for a dynamic, hands-on English Editor/Writer with at least 3 years’ experience in a similar position, who has a keen eye for detail, understands what makes a news story interesting and can help us create timely, engaging content for our websites.

The ideal candidate will be a native English speaker who is also fluent in Spanish.

He/she must also demonstrate the ability to revise SEO-based content generated by external writers, as well as break stories, spot trends for longer-range coverage, and ultimately be a fast-learner who gets the drift of what we need and how it should be done.

Reporting to the Editor Team Lead, the candidate will be responsible for seeking & writing newsworthy information as well as copyediting and proofreading content related to international affairs, travel and European politics.

If you define yourself as a meticulous content editor and a “newsworm” who enjoys getting things done in a time crunch, we are looking for you.

Other edition tasks include:

  • Outsourcing content pieces and communicating with external collaborators
  • Optimizing and proofreading external collaborators’ texts prior to publication.

The position requires being in close contact with our in-house Content and SEO teams to follow our quality guidelines.


Does that sound like you?
