Proofreader

Creative Seattle, Washington

Quality Control

You have an eye for detail and the steely nerves of a ruthless typo executioner. You sleep with a style guide under your pillow. Punctuation is everything.

POP seeks a part-time freelance Proofreader/Copy Editor to help with a variety of projects. We are looking for someone who is an attentive creative professional and produces flawless work. They are both flexible and open-minded about protecting the creative spirit of a given piece. The proofreader must ensure that all materials leaving the agency are clear, consistent, complete and credible. Their work is grammatically correct, and aligned with brand standards.
