SKILLS 
You're an awesome writer; an even better editor
You can self-edit your work and take unnecessary words away until it hurts. 

You can edit someone else’s work and polish it up
Your attention to detail is a point of envy amongst friends.

You care about the little things
You're always watching for typos, and this sentence almost killed you.

You can express your opinion confidently
You’re not scared to speak up when you disagree, or when you think something needs improvement, and you do it with confidence and respect for others.

You're a self-starter
You don’t wait for permission to go and do something. You see something broken, and you fix it. You have a great idea, and you make it happen.

You're a team player
You don’t care who has the idea, as long as it’s good. You care more about the end result than about personal recognition.

LOCATION
This opportunity is for those located in (or willing to relocate to) the NYC area only.
