WittyPen is committed to building an inclusive, supportive place for you to do the best and most rewarding work of your career.

About the job

As a content editor, you will be part of any new project from Day 1. But the actual work starts when you receive content from writers for the given project, where you edit the content for factual, grammatical, and plagiarism issues. You will also be consistently sharing qualitative feedbacks with the writers so they improve content quality which saves you time in the long run.

On a day to day basis you will be involved in following tasks:

  1. Be part of project kickoff meeting to understand the expectations
  2. Review content for project guidelines, grammatical issues, and plagiarism
  3. Revert content pieces to writers on the platform and track for timely delivery
  4. Edit content pieces for final deliveries
  5. Work with Content Manager to further improve briefs, project checklists, and writer allocation

About You

Since you will be mostly dealing with content editing, being a voracious reader will give you an edge. Another key aspect is to consistently work towards improving your work efficiency. Below are the skills/requirements which would make you a good fit for this job.

  • English Proficiency - Writing
  • Education in BA/MA English Literature, Mass Communications or previous experience in Content
  • Knowledge of Project Management and using tools like Basecamp, Trello etc.
  • Knowledge of Content & Digital Marketing is a plus

Pay and benefits

This is a hybrid-role, full-time (40-hour per week) position. Since it is a hybrid role, we are flexible with office visits and try to build a good balance with our team

The salary for this position is between ₹300,000 - ₹420,000 INR based on experience and expertise. We will also pay for necessary equipment, if needed.

We believe in working asynchronously and don't believe in you being online for a fixed time period every day. We don't track work hours either. What we only expect is that the work allocated to you should be completed before deadlines. We are stringent with deadlines.
