Overview

http://www.hyperbiotics.com/If you love natural and alternative health and are brilliant with words, this is an amazing opportunity to make a big impact with a growing, innovative health company.

This person will be a key member of the marketing and communications team focused on crafting empowering and informational copy primarily for the alternative health space. This role will become ongoing freelance or full-time for the right candidate.

This is a 50/50 split of Copywriting and Copy Editing, so we are looking for a special person who has skills in both.

Here’s a breakdown of the day-to-day:

Content Development

  • Research and evaluate scientific and medical literature to support content efforts
  • Develop natural health-related content primarily for an alternative, health-conscious audience (from articles and newsletters to landing pages and email sequences)
  • Ensure all content is FDA compliant, on-brand, consistent in terms of style, quality and tone of voice, and optimized for social promotion

Copy Editing

  • Proofread and review all print and electronic content for accurate use of grammar and style, content integrity, and consistency
  • Serve as a fact checker for all materials including web links, names, titles, scientific support, copyright information, etc.
  • Help the team establish and update editorial policies and procedures
  • Use advanced functions of many software and web applications, particularly Google applications, MicrosoftOffice suite, and Adobe Acrobat, for the quality review and electronic formatting, compiling, and publishing of deliverables

And a little about us…

We are virtual team of very high performing and overachieving individuals who love what we do. We are making a difference in people’s lives and are looking for the top 3% to join us – someone who can juggle many things (without dropping one of them) and who loves creating and building things, takes initiative, works well within a team and wants to excel. We need someone who is thorough, Type A, self-managed and who thrives on output, results, organization and excellence.

Our ideal fit is both creative and technical and…

  • Is a grammar whiz and has a background in journalism or marketing
  • Has 3-5 years of experience as a professional proofreader or copy editor
  • Loves to work independently in a fast-paced environment
  • Embraces scientific and medical research and can synthesize it into practical and relevant content for a progressive and health-savvy audience
  • Has prior experience editing both technical and informational communications with keen attention to detail
