About You

You’re an excellent editor. You’re an expert in spelling, grammar, voice, and tone. You never miss a typo, and you have a strong attention to detail as well as significant experience in substantive/developmental editing, copyediting, and proofreading.

The audience comes first. You’re good at turning confusing, messy concepts and/or copy into delightful moments for users, always considering the engagement experience.

You know content marketing. You have 3-5 years of experience editing a wide variety of marketing assets (landing pages, emails, webinar decks, etc.) and long-form content (blog posts, white papers, etc.), preferably for a B2B SaaS company.

Feedback comes naturally. You champion writers and give clear, actionable feedback on drafts. You’re comfortable delivering critical and positive feedback early and often to inspire growth and ensure success.

You can juggle multiple projects. You maintain focus on project goals throughout many stages of execution and have problem-solving instincts that work toward resolution by default. Working on many projects that involve different stakeholders, goals, and target audiences sounds like fun to you.

You’re a team player. You’re comfortable working cross-functionally and can collaborate with multiple departments and stakeholders. You’re comfortable editing work from varying levels of writing backgrounds, from cross-functional stakeholders to seasoned in-house writers. You thrive on receiving constructive feedback, and you realize that the work you do contributes to the company’s goals and mission of making automation work for everyone.

Efficiency is important. Zapier is all about finding ways to work better, whether through automation, simplification, or prioritization. You’re great at setting up systems and processes that will help you focus on the most important work.

Things You’ll Do

In this role, you’ll get experience with a little bit of everything. That said, here are some things you’ll do:

  • Edit all content for product marketing and Zapier partner initiatives, including product launches, case studies, webinars, blog posts, emails, and more
  • Ensure grammatical accuracy and maintain editorial brand standards across all produced content
  • Work with and provide consistent feedback to a dedicated in-house writer, including in-draft edits and big-picture trends, to support their long-term career growth
  • Provide editing and proofreading services to various cross-functional teams, customizing feedback to level of writer expertise
  • Serve as a liaison between product marketing, partnerships marketing, and content marketing teams, championing content strategy goals and bringing a collaborative mindset
  • Help with project management and capacity planning for content production
  • Collaborate cross-functionally with multiple departments and external stakeholders to produce effective content, and develop new and better cross-functional systems

After you apply, you are going to hear back from us—even if we don’t see an immediate fit with our team. In fact, throughout the process, we strive to never go more than seven days without letting you know the status of your application. We know we’ll make mistakes from time to time, so if you ever have questions about where you stand or about the process, just ask your recruiter!
