What you’ll be doing

Copy editing is a critical component of good content, so we need someone who has an eagle eye for language and grammar; someone who can watch the watchers, so to speak. You’ll work with everything from blogs, to technical papers, to videos, to web copy, and more. If it has words on it, you should expect to review it.
Distributing content using a content management system (CMS). This includes formatting material in HTML and/or markdown to ensure everything renders correctly when published.
Maintain the company style guide and ensure it is applied across written content.
Organizing content assets to ensure all materials are accessible and easy to find.
Writing basic copy for items such as emails and newsletters.
Other duties as assigned.
We’d love it if you have:

A degree (or comparable experience) in a writing-intensive discipline (e.g., history, literature, journalism).
Very strong writing and editing skills (submit samples with application).
Strong positions on grammar. You care about commas, correct preposition use, and accurate word choices. If you’re the type of person who likes to reference the Chicago Manual of Style, just in case, this job might be for you.
Experience with HTML.
Experience with a CMS (Contentful is a plus, but WordPress or similar is sufficient).
A “learner” attitude. This is an entry level position.
Flexibility to wear multiple hats.
Strong communication and organizational skills. Ruthless attention to detail.
Strong team player with initiative, a positive attitude, and proven ability to excel in a fast-paced environment.
Bonus points if you have:

Experience in the Wrike project management tool.
Database or IT industry experience.
Previous marketing experience, especially marketing to developers or marketing for a SaaS company preferable.
