Job Description & How to Apply Below
Scribendi is looking for the best freelance editors. When we find the best editors, as we’ve been doing for over two decades, we provide a streamlined process that allows editors to focus on what they do best: editing.
As one of our talented freelance editors, you'll have the ability to work from home while choosing the types of assignments that interest you and editing completely on your own schedule. Our transparent, per-order pricing shows you how much a job is worth before you accept it. You can interact with both in-house staff and other freelancers  forums, and you'll also receive incentives that can be redeemed through online retailers. You won't have any of the hassles of bidding or pitching to clients, and you will be paid promptly.
Working with Scribendi requires a moderate level of computer and Internet knowledge. You need to be comfortable downloading and uploading files, saving and finding files on your computer, transferring files, renaming files, and using a website interface. You should have a good working knowledge of the major document file formats and their associated software programs. Some ability to troubleshoot technical problems is also helpful.

• A university degree in a relevant field
• At least three years of experience in editing, writing, document production, or language teaching
• Native-level English ability
• Excellent reading comprehension skills and the ability to follow written instructions and work independently
• Be absolutely fanatical about meeting deadlines
• An average editing/proofreading speed of 1,000–1,500 words per hour
• Microsoft Word 2010 or later
• You need to have a secure internet connection. This includes the following requirements:
o a private network (i.e., no public WiFi can be used)
o password protection
o WP2/WP3 encryption
o anti-virus/anti-spyware software (installed and regularly updated, preferably daily)
o firewall (enabled Windows Defender or other firewall software)
• Broadband/high-speed Internet access
• The ability to accept payments in US dollars
• Must not reside in the US States of California, Colorado, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, South Dakota, Washington DC, West Virginia, or Wyoming.
• A graduate degree in a relevant field
• Access to additional word processing/document production software (e.g., Open Office, LaTeX, Acrobat, Final Draft, Publisher, PageMaker)
• In-depth knowledge of one or more style guides (e.g., Chicago Manual of Style, Turabian, APA)
