My name is Mauricio and I’m the CEO of Cloudwards. We’re a software review site looking for a copy editor to join our team for 10 hours per week, though we expect the workload to grow quickly. We’re exclusively hiring a copy editor; we’re not looking to hire an editor who will also write for us.
Cloudwards.net has a calm and clear tone. We have a strong aversion to a marketing style or sales-y tone. We prefer fewer words to many, and dislike the trend of using big words where little ones will do. However, we encourage our writers to have a creative voice, so you’ll need to know when to make edits for clarity and when to keep that special flair intact.
You will be required to provide feedback to writers. This can be tough at times, so you’ll need to be able to communicate well.
One to five years of professional copy editing experience using U.S. English
Knowledge of AP Style
Ability to receive constructive feedback
Strong communication skills
Desired Qualifications (Not Required):
Experience in or knowledge of cloud-based technologies, such as VPNs, cloud storage, etc.
Experience working with Google Docs and SEO tools
The selection process works as follows: Fill out the Google Form we’ve linked below. If we like what we see, we’ll get back to you. We’ll give you a short piece to edit and then do a short video interview.
Perks of Cloudwards.net
Cloudwards.net is a fully remote team of freelance writers and editors, which means you can work from anywhere that has a WiFi connection. That’s just one benefit of working on our team. Others include: a decent, quickly paid salary; a friendly editorial team; and relative freedom to plan your workweek as you see fit.
We’ll be paying you around $20 per hour, though we’re willing to negotiate upward for people with some solid experience.
