Superior Blue Strategies

compensation: $30 per piece
employment type: contract
job title: Proofreader

Superior Blue Strategies, a progressive mail and digital voter contact firm based in Washington, DC and Duluth, MN is seeking FREELANCE PROOFREADERS to join our team of professionals who provide direct mail, collateral, targeting and digital services for a diverse slate of progressive clients across the country.

Our Proofreaders are a critical and essential position at Superior Blue, by helping ensure that our deliverables aren’t just creative and correct, but also free of typos and grammar errors that can distract readers and muddle our message.

You’ll work closely with senior staff, partners, and the Production Team to help create and deliver timely, accurate, and creative mail programs for our clients with a comprehensive review of every piece that goes out the door to voters for fact checking, spelling, grammar, sentence structure and punctuation.

The ideal candidate for this position will be strongly self-motivated, highly organized, have terrific attention to detail, excellent grasp of AP Rules of Style, a spelling bee champion who is ready to be part of the progressive movement this summer and fall in a fast-paced, occasionally chaotic team environment. A bachelor’s degree in English, Journalism, Marketing, or humanities preferred (or equivalent experience in an editorial capacity).

· Outstanding grammar skills and knowledge of AP style
· Strong written and verbal communication skills, including responsiveness
· Excellent spelling skills
· Very high attention to detail
· Proficiency with Adobe Acrobat and Gmail
· An appreciation for graphic design and visual communication

And even if you don’t match every requirement, apply anyway – we love meeting new folks and finding ways to get people involved.

We are looking to hire this position Spring 2024 and seeking freelance candidates to work remotely with us on a project basis through the end of October 2024 (and potentially beyond). Depending on the workload of the team, the Proofreader may have the opportunity to work more than 40 hours in a week (busier times are usually seen August thru October).

The position also requires a positive attitude, a flexible schedule to accommodate the vagaries of political campaigns. That said - we work with *YOUR* availability, and only schedule you if/when you're available.

Superior Blue Strategies is an equal opportunity employer committed to building a diverse, inclusive staff, because we know it makes us a stronger company and better partner for our clients. We're committed to hiring people of all races, ethnicities, ages, sex, genders, sexual orientation or gender identities, marital status, religions, and disabilities. Women, people of color, LGBTQ individuals, and members of other minority or marginalized groups are strongly encouraged to apply. We offer a competitive compensation package that may include bonus opportunities and more.

Email us at jobs@superior.blue, put the word PROOFREADER in the subject line, and tell us a little about yourself: include a cover letter, resume, and what you want to be when you grow up and any proofreading issues you see in this ad. This position pay begins at $30 per piece.

Due to the high volume of responses, only candidates selected for interviews will be contacted. Thank you for your understanding.
