The New Yorker is seeking an experienced copy editor and Web producer to join its digital operation. The hired applicant will regularly work some evening or weekend shifts. Ideal candidates have a demonstrated enthusiasm for copy editing and an interest in making copy editing a focus of their career. The position may begin remotely if necessary because of the current coronavirus crisis but will permanently transition to on-site work in our Manhattan office.
This role is primarily to copy-edit posts on a wide variety of topics for newyorker.com and may include occasional work on magazine pieces. The selected applicant will write digital headlines and other display copy, assemble the necessary components to prepare each article for publication, update the site’s home page and section pages, and occasionally be involved in newsletter production and social-media promotion. A good candidate is a thorough reader who can quickly catch and fix mistakes of spelling, punctuation, grammar, and syntax. We are looking for someone who has a finely tuned ear for language and is able to gracefully recast sentences for clarity and concision when necessary.
We strongly encourage candidates from underrepresented backgrounds to apply.
