Job Description

Insider Inc. is hiring a night copyeditor to help handle edits for a 24-hour newsroom.

Our copyeditors edit all kinds of stories — from breaking news to investigative features — as well as headlines, homepages, social-media posts, push alerts, and more.

They edit for errors of fact, logic, and sense, in addition to grammar, punctuation, spelling, and style. They tighten writing and make it clearer.

The night copyeditor will be responsible for copyediting articles during weekday evenings, most likely 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. Pacific Time. We value creativity, accountability, and diversity of ideas and opinions.

The night copyeditor will report to Insider’s deputy copy chief and will be expected to work largely independently, often consulting with reporters and section editors to improve stories. The ideal candidate will be comfortable reading a wide variety of news stories and quickly identifying issues both stylistic and substantive.

Some other skills that would make a candidate successful in this role:

  • General knowledge of principles and standards of journalism
  • Experience editing, especially at a news website
  • Enthusiasm for learning house style and improving your own work
  • Familiarity with content-management systems
  • A positive, team-first attitude and a sense of humor
  • Awareness of language nuances in diverse subject fields
  • Passion for learning and reading about global news
  • Effective time management and ability to work independently

If this sounds like your dream job, apply here with a single PDF containing your resume/CV and cover letter explaining why you are the perfect fit for this role.

Are you passionate about this opportunity, but worried that you don’t have 100% of the experience we’re looking for? We still want to hear from you! Apply online and let us know why you’d make a great addition to the Insider community.
