F/T Copy Editor and Web Producer Job

I ran across this job posting at one of my favorite techie blogs, Ars Technica and figured I’d post it here. Turns out that they list several job openings in the technical field, so if that’s your passion it would be a solid place for finding telecommuting job leads in that arena. It’s a nice, easy list to peruse – so check out jobs.arstechnica.com for those.

The job posting that caught my eye is actually a job opening at Ars Technica. Here’s what they say about the job and the qualifications they’re looking for in a candidate:

You’ll be working for Ars Technica as a Fulltime Copy Editor and Web Producer.
You’ll be working at their Chicago, IL location.

Ars Technica is hiring! We’re looking for a 40 hr/week copy editor/producer with a passion for technology and an eye for detail. The ideal candidate will have a solid grasp of spelling, grammar, and style and be comfortable coordinating a small copyediting team. Previous copyediting experience is strongly preferred.

Candidates should also have a grasp of basic HTML tags and be capable of basic production work—preparing and posting articles, formatting text for the web, resizing, uploading, and inserting pictures, etc. (We can provide training for production work.)

We need a self-starter who requires minimal oversight to produce excellent results, someone with the ability to work in a fast-paced environment.

This is a telecommuting position, though we need someone in the greater Chicago area. Candidates who live outside Chicago will be considered, but (at minimum) quarterly travel to Chicago would be likely be required. All other things being equal, we will choose someone local.

There’s a bit more info and a contact for you at the Ars Technica Job listing!
