RideApart.com is Hiring a Freelance Editor for Motorcycle Website

Job Description:

RideApart.com – a news and reviews publication in the Motorcycle vertical – is looking for a talented, driven individual to handle day-to-day management of a diverse publication. Qualified candidates should have a background in editing sharp, well-written copy, on deadline, from a variety of sources. The ability to write authoritatively, and with feeling, about all things motorcycles is a must as well.

This is a freelance role; candidates will work from home, and must possess the kind of discipline and time-management to accommodate a far-flung group of staffers. Candidates should expect to meet regularly (via Skype) with management and editorial teams in the U.S. Eastern Time Zone, and Greenwich Mean Time.

Responsibilities:

  • Proofread, edit, and schedule contributors’ articles, ensuring they adhere to RideApart editorial style. Pre-existing familiarity with Associated Press style will be of benefit
  • Format edited articles in the site’s CMS, scheduling them to publish
  • Coordinate with the Director and News Editor to ensure a set number of articles are published every day (Monday-Friday, with stories scheduled to run over the weekend)
  • Find new or unreported stories from around the web, to pitch to editorial staff
  • Write news stories relevant to the motorcycle sector in a timely, consistent, and accurate manner
  • Use basic journalistic best practices: calling sources, conducting interviews, using proper citations / attributions, etc
  • Work collaboratively with editorial team and contributors to develop new story types, coverage angles, and improve workflow
  • Attend regular meetings with the Director and parent company staff
