In addition, you have:
  • Strong editing and writing skills, and a knowledge of AP Style.
  • A deep understanding of the fundamentals of storytelling.
  • A talent for knowing how to speak to your audience.
  • An ability to quickly grasp complex topics and then communicate them clearly to others.
  • A deadline-driven focus and the organizational skills to support it.
  • A willingness to receive constructive criticism so that together we can deliver engaging content.
  • A collaborative nature – you enjoy working with other talented people.
Bonus experience:
  • Interviewing clients for their story.
  • Managing editorial/writing teams and their workflow.
  • Familiarity with the finance and healthcare industries.
  • Bachelor’s degree. English, communication, journalism or similar major preferred. Coursework in technical writing, marketing, computer science or business a plus.
