Experienced Editorial Assistant

Quality Nonsense Ltd

We are looking for an editorial assistant to join the Quality Nonsense team. You will be helping our editors create content for our portfolio of websites. Currently, we cover streaming and personal finance, with other projects in the works in new sectors.

This role involves researching topics and writing and editing blog posts. Researching and making recommendations to the editor. Editing blog articles and providing feedback to writers. Assisting with any other ad-hoc tasks assigned by the editor.

This position involves editing inside the WordPress CMS so knowledge of it is essential. We are looking for someone with Editor level experience. This is not a coding position, so you will need to be very comfortable with WordPress as an editor, not as a developer.

Example Tasks

  • Auditing pages
  • Fact checking
  • Fixing errors and out of date information
  • Correcting grammar
  • Adding CTAs
  • Replacing images
  • Optimizing pages for SEO using industry best practices
  • Writing briefs for writers

About us

We manage different websites.

One of them, reviews online commodities brokers, teaches beginning traders about commodities, and provides other basic trading information. You don’t need trading experience, but you will need to become familiar with the pages on this site.

The other one, provides information for cord-cutters — people who are abandoning cable and satellite TV. Most of our content deals with streaming services like Disney+, Netflix and Sling TV. But we also discuss antennas and related technologies. And we write a lot about what is on TV — especially sports.

You will have the opportunity to join a team working remotely for more than 10 years, across 8 different countries. Over the last decade working remotely, we’ve developed unique processes, systems, and ways of working that help us get things done (both on time and at the quality we expect of ourselves).

The Tools We Use

We use a few popular tools you may have used before:-

  • Slack, for teamwork and day-to-day chat
  • Google Docs/Google Sheets for collaborative documents
  • WordPress to power our sites
  • Trello to keep organized and meet deadlines

Requirements for this Role

  • Native English speaker, bilingual, or C2 level English (we work in US English, but you can be based anywhere).
  • Beginner to intermediate understanding of SEO (eg, keyword research, Ahrefs)
  • WordPress knowledge – you will be editing directly on WordPress
  • Google site search and other online research & fact-checking skills
  • Google Sheets – filtering, sorting, basic formulas, creating reports
  • Accurate data entry / fact checking – detail is everything in our work

Requirements for All Team Members

  • Excellent communicator (remote work is otherwise impossible)
  • Willing to follow instructions and receptive to constructive feedback (eg, how to invoice correctly)
  • Happy working solo (ie, without micromanaging or nagging)
  • Well organized (ie, deadlines get met, without excuses or exceptions)
  • Rock steady reliable – your word is your bond
  • Will work our way – it will differ from your experience
  • Introverts will thrive in our team (we do have the odd extrovert too)

Pay & Workload

We pay well/fast, and presently have as much work as you can handle.

Rates vary in line with your commitment. You will get paid monthly in US dollars (by wire transfer).

We are looking for a full-time commitment. There are no set hours, and you can work when you choose in any time zone and in any location – provided you meet deadlines. Did we mention how important it is to meet deadlines…?

We don’t micromanage; you will be expected to meet deadlines without exception, and without us hassling you.

Sound like a good fit?

We’d love to hear from you!

We’ve set up a quick Typeform survey to collect your details and resume – it should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
