UPDATE: Thank you for the hundreds of inquries! This part-time position has been filled. But the good news is, we’re going to be looking for a fulltime editor in the near future. That job will only be open to Bay Area locals, though.
Dogster.com, one of the best and biggest pet publications on the Web, is looking for a part-time editor. We want an editorial jack-of-all-trades — an experienced Web journalist who has no trouble adapting to a new CMS; someone who can whip copy into shape and write killer click-worthy headlines. If you are completely anal when it comes to making deadlines and know a sprinkling of SEO, you could be our person.
The strongest candidates will be masters of the written word and also have an eye for selecting and editing art for our stories in Photoshop or a similar program. If you love dogs and have a knack for ridiculous, borderline-hideous puns, we want to hear from you.
Working hours: 20 hours/week as detailed below:
This editor will copy edit (AP Style), lay out and schedule our next-day stories from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. PST. He or she will also be expected to edit and publish the news stories our writers churn out between 7:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. PST on weekdays. This person may also be asked to update Dogster’s Facebook page with the first stories of the day.
This is a telecommute position. The chosen candidate will report to Dogster’s Managing Editor, primarily over e-mail and IM.
To apply, send a cover letter and resume to [deleted].
We also ask that you visit Dogster’s homepage and send us alternative headlines for three of the published stories.
