GameSkinny Jobs: Associate Editor (Weekends)

Think you're ready to join the GameSkinny editorial crew? Read on for more about our current opening.

Jay Ricciardi, our former Associate Editor in charge of night and weekend coverage went and got himself promoted to Staff Editor and JTP Coordinator here at GameSkinny.

(I know, the nerve of some people.)

That devastating move left our night and weekends hopelessly bereft of editorial coverage, until Amanda Wallace was tapped as our newest Associate Editor in charge of weeknight coverage. Amanda joins our editorial team after participating in many phases of the Journalist Training Program, as well as being invited to join our freelance team and representing GameSkinny at PAX East 2014.

All well and good, but by my count, that means we still need one brave, talented, passionate soul who loves games as much as they love the Oxford Comma to guide writers toward greatness on the weekends.

Search Deep Within Your Soul, and Ask Yourself... Are You That Editor?

The weekend editor works on (wait for it) the weekends editing content on GameSkinny.

Responsibilities

This part-time, hourly position is responsible for:

  • Editing articles on GameSkinny with attention to spelling, grammar, accuracy, entertainment and search quality.
  • Providing helpful, friendly feedback to GameSkinny writers.
  • Acting on a genuine desire to help GameSkinny grow as a community, a destination for gamers, and a great place for writers.
  • Providing guidance to JTP members as needed during coverage hours.

Location - Remote or Local

    Hi there! I was just curious as to how the application process is going. Are you still collecting them and in the process of contacting applicants?

    Hi Brittany, since posting the opening we've gotten a ton of extremely qualified applicants, so right now we're not looking for new applicants for this specific role.

    That said, we always strive to promote from within the GameSkinny community first, so if you're interested in future openings the best way to get our attention is to start writing with GameSkinny and get involved with the community!

    Depending on the situation, it can be a rare, shy beast. Sometimes you have to lure it out. ;)
