About the Role:
The Huffington Post is looking for accurate, fast news editors to handle line and copy edits site-wide -- reviewing text, videos, graphics and social media content. Ideal candidates will be just as comfortable with breaking news as they are with in-depth features. This position will require editing a broad range of text and visual materials, so editors should have a wide knowledge base and be a quick study. As The Huffington Post's final line of defense, these editors will have impeccable news judgment, high editorial standards, a strong sense for story structure and a firm grasp of grammar and AP style.
* Three or more years of copy editing experience
* A voracious media diet and a strong familiarity with national and international news
* Familiarity with web writing, SEO and AP style
* An ability to work independently and be comfortable doing so at a fast pace
* Superior communication skills
* Willingness to be based in either Sydney, London, New York, Los Angeles or San Francisco
