Managing Editor Role

Editing and proofreading will be among your daily responsibilities. Being an advanced editor, you will check various kinds of content: from simple blog posts and business letters to complicated academic papers.

Some of your responsibilities will be similar to the ones of a senior editor: you will have to provide feedback to every writer in your team to help them improve certain aspects of writing. Moreover, you will help your writers resolve work-related issues and motivate them to achieve higher goals.

This job is a perfect opportunity to acquire/develop your editorial and managerial skills. You will gain experience, which will help you to be promoted to an editorial coordinator or even an editor-in-chief in the future. Ready to become a part of our team? Send us your CV.
