Responsibilities

You’re fluent in both AP Style and Chicago Style (or MLA if you’re especially adventurous) and can argue their virtues. Editing and proofreading are not just 9-to-5 responsibilities for you they are a way of life. Confidence in your editorial ability radiates from your ruthless red pen. At a glance, you can tell the difference between a single space and a double space (the horror!), no matter the font. Your editorial antennae are well-tuned, and no margin or punctuation mark gets past your inspection. Your communication skills verbal, written, interpretative dance-related are unparalleled.

At Bishop Fox, you’ll be a trusted member of our growing and exciting editorial team. You will be tasked with inspecting our deliverables and collateral for quality content and formatting. Each day, you’ll work independently and steadfastly to meet stringent deadlines. Of course, these aren’t just any mundane reports or presentations. These deliverables encompass some of the coolest hacks in the industry; this is the sort of content you may have only otherwise encountered in headlines. As you proofread, you’ll learn about cybersecurity in a way most people will never experience. And, as the last set of eyes on deliverables before they go to our clients, you will play a crucial role in conveying our findings to some of the most important businesses in the world.

Requirements

  • At least two years of editorial, proofreading, writing, or communications experience
  • A preference for technical editing experience, particularly security
  • An uncanny attention to detail
  • A degree in English, Journalism, Foreign Languages, or a related field
  • Extensive experience with Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel
  • Trustworthiness and a respect for confidentiality
  • Top-notch time management skills; you respect deadlines
  • Outstanding prioritization skills
  • Flexibility and a willingness to sometimes work unusual hours
  • An outgoing and amicable personality
  • A team-player mindset and skin as thick as your favorite leather-bound book
  • A calm demeanor (you are an anchor in the storm)
  • Lots of self-motivation
