Articulate is looking for an experienced, mature editor to help us develop compelling, instructive, and well-researched content. As Content Editor, you’ll edit content focused on various business topics, ensuring the quality of all content produced by our content writers, and mentoring writers to achieve even greater mastery of their craft. You’ll be responsible for ensuring content integrity, conceptualizing content topics, and ensuring efficient flow through the content pipeline.
You may be our person if you’re a kind human being with a high EQ who can help writers develop their craft through collaboration and constructive, growth-oriented feedback. If you’re a thoughtful, trustworthy doer who loves learning, possesses a high sense of responsibility for your work, and is a proactive self-starter, we’d love to hear from you.

What You'll Do:

  • Edit the work of a team of talented writers who strive to create highly relevant, engaging, and actionable content
  • Positively and collaboratively mentor content writers as they push their craft to new heights
  • Bring a seasoned eye to assure relevancy of content to the target audience
  • Ensure the proper use of grammar, syntax, and use of the Articulate voice
  • Be a hands-on editor, personally taking on content writing and related tasks to hit critical deadlines
  • Support the director of content in managing the production process and workflows for content development
  • Work with the director of content to develop the content pipeline by analyzing data on the performance of existing content
  • Engage with necessary resources (e.g., subject matter experts, legal counsel) to ensure content is accurately described in a compliant manner and an audience-relevant voice
  • Work to develop your knowledge of both instructional and visual design principles

What We're Looking For:

  • Bachelor’s degree in English, communications, journalism, or a related field
  • 7+ years’ progressive experience editing general business or industry topics in a deadline-driven environment such as a national news organization or a similar combination of skills and experiences
  • Experience in business that has allowed for the development of a deep understanding of common business dynamics and challenges 
  • A successful history of mentoring and developing teams of highly skilled writers
  • Exceptional research, writing, and editing skills, with a knack for producing clear and concise copy
  • Strong project management skills, with love for the tiniest of details
  • Demonstrated ability to adapt quickly within a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment
  • A love of technology and the ability to learn new tools quickly as they are added to the team’s tech stack
  • High levels of empathy and tactfulness
  • Bonus points if you have experience writing copy for on-screen talent
