About the job
As a content editor, you will be part of any new project from Day 1. But the actual work starts when you receive content from writers for the given project, where you edit the content for factual, grammatical, and plagiarism issues. You will also be consistently sharing qualitative feedbacks with the writers so they improve content quality which saves you time in the long run. On a day to day basis you will be involved in following tasks:
- Be part of project kickoff meeting to understand the expectations
- Review content for project guidelines, grammatical issues, and plagiarism
- Revert content pieces to writers on the platform and track for timely delivery
- Edit content pieces for final deliveries
- Work with Content Manager to further improve briefs, project checklists, and writer allocation
Since you will be mostly dealing with content editing, being a voracious reader will give you an edge. Another key aspect is to consistently work towards improving your work efficiency. Below are the skills/requirements which would make you a good fit for this job.
- English Proficiency - Writing
- Education in BA/MA English Literature, Mass Communications or previous experience in Content
- Knowledge of Project Management and using tools like Basecamp, Trello etc.
- Knowledge of Content & Digital Marketing is a plus
Pay and benefits
This is a fully remote, full-time (40-hour per week) position and you can choose your own work hours during the day. You can also choose to work from our office in Pune, once it re-opens (after the pandemic is under control). All we ask is for you to be available when there are team activities, which are usually scheduled on Wednesdays every week.
The salary for this position is between ₹300,000 - ₹420,000 INR based on experience and expertise. We will also pay for necessary equipment, if needed.
We believe in working asynchronously and don't believe in you being online for a fixed time period every day. We don't track work hours either. What we only expect is that the work allocated to you should be completed before deadlines. We are stringent with deadlines.
We are planning to onboard immediately but the hiring cycle will be open till April 20th, 2021 (11 PM) IST. During this time you will hear back from us and there will be 2-3 rounds of interview on Google Meet. You will also go through a test to vet your marketing and English language skills.
How to apply
To apply, you have to fill up a simple form in the link. Note that this is the only way we accept applications for any role.
In the application, tell us not just how you can help us build WittyPen, but also how WittyPen can help you grow. Let us know if you've seen our work and like what we do. Do write about your past experience into content writing/management. Be honest about yourself and tell us if you don't know something. If you write things like "I will do anything to make your company a big success", you will be straightaway rejected.
Keep it sharp, short, and mention things that matters to you. We value great writers, so take your time with the application. We’re giving you our full attention.
And honestly, we are not really interested in resumes. But that doesn't mean we're not interested in what you've worked on in the past, we're just leaving it up to you to tell your own story the way you want to tell it.
Can't wait to hear from you!
