What are you waiting for?
You are the last line of defense for content that leaves your desk. It's your responsibility to ensure that everything you approve is up to standards, free of errors, and meets the criteria outlined by the client and our client services team.
You will manage a team of writers — and you might even do a little writing yourself.
You should be comfortable working within deadlines. Our clients have editorial calendar and our strategists are carefully planning initiatives that rely on the content your team will produce. You need to enjoy managing a team and meeting deadlines.
You must be able to ensure that content produced by your team is grammatically accurate and meets our clients guidelines for tone, voice, and industry terminology.
Our clients expect us to meet an agreed-upon publishing schedule. This means that we need the content from you by the due dates outlined. If you are even in danger of missing a deadline, you are responsible for communicating that with your team.
You will be responsible for publishing or scheduling content on social media channels, websites, email marketing software, or other marketing channels. If you have writers that you feel are capable of assisting with these tasks, you can train them to assist.
We don't maintain a physical office space and instead we allow our employees to work remotely. You will mostly be able to set your own schedule. There will be regular meetings with other members of your team and with clients that you will be expected to attend, but otherwise, the driving force is high-quality work delivered on time, not a time clock.
You absolutely must be a self-motivated person that enjoys their job and wants to learn more. Our industry is fast-paced, and our clients might be moving even faster.
You must be DRIVEN to succeed.
You will be encouraged and expected to stay on top of trends in your field.
We hire editors on a part time and full time basis. Part time might work as few as 10-12 hours where full time would work around 40 hours per week.
Aside from required meetings, you have the ability to set your own schedule. You will be eligible for benefits like unlimited vacation based on your role as either part or full time.
At Sparkitive, Experience and Motivation are essential. A degree is nice, but we want to know that you can do this job and that you'll love waking up each day to do it. We can train technical ability, but you must come with passion.
99% of our clients are in the professional services industry. They may have customers in the commercial or residential space, but most are commercial. This includes companies in the healthcare, industrial, and construction industries.
In most cases, you will have assignments weeks in advance. There are rare cases where you might need to turn around an assignment or revision request within a day or two, but those are rare and we'll communicate ahead of time to ensure that you're available.
Most of the time you will not work with clients directly. You'll be provided a technical brief and any additional information that you need. However, there are times where it makes sense to have you work with the client closer to avoid miscommunications and delays.
