Do you have unparalleled detail orientation? Do you spot the smallest of errors – and yet can also track and manage a multitude of weekly projects? Do you plan things down to the last detail, but have flexibility and a positive attitude if things don’t go exactly as planned?
Then you might be the superstar we’re looking for!
This is a critical role on our team that requires a unique type of person. We need to be able to trust your discerning, detailed eye, without having to hold your hand too much on a day-to-day basis once you’re trained.
-It cannot be stressed enough: You *must* have an incredible level of attention to detail for this role.
-Excellent, professional written and communication skills across the board (grammar matters!)
-Obsessed with process improvement. When mistakes happen, you say, “Aw, crap, how did that happen? Oops, looks like it was me (if it was). Here’s what we’ll do to get better next time.” And then change the process as needed and help the team follow through.
-Flexibility and adaptability. What we’re doing with email is always subject to change; we test, test, and test again, so you must be able to pivot, try new things, and not get stuck in routine—while maintaining your incredible attention to detail.
-A great attitude with a positive outlook
Pluses but not required (we will train the right person):
-Prior experience as a freelancer
-Experience with Maropost, Infusionsoft, Mail Chimp, or other email or content management system
-Experience as a copy editor, proofreader, or in QA
-Formatting, testing, and scheduling all of our marketing emails in our email management software (Maropost)
-Cold proofreading of marketing emails, double-checking them against originals, and testing links
-Working with two freelance reviewers who are the second and third set of eyes on your work
-Consistent follow-up on problems or questions with other team members on anything that seems incorrect in the emails
-Revamping our email process constantly to make it ever tighter
-Some light editing of our website and product content if that’s in your skill set
-Other projects and growth dependent on who YOU are (our current Email Marketing Assistant is moving within the company to bigger and better things, and she’s the second person to hold this role who’s done so)
WHY JOIN US?
You’ll work remotely with a lot of flexibility and independence. We are 100% remote, with team members based in LA, NY, the UK, South America, Eastern Europe, and throughout Asia. We don’t care where you work from as long as you deliver results.
Make an impact – help women level up in their relationships, self-esteem, and happiness.
Be part of a positive, upbeat team that deals with each other with respect and gratitude.
This position is a long-term part-time freelance role at 25-30 hours per week. Our team is fully remote, but for this role most of the team you’ll be working with is in or near Eastern Time hours, so you’ll need to have consistent availability and overlap with an Eastern Time business day, especially between the hours of 10:30 AM - 3 PM.
You might also end up working the occasional few hours on the weekend. If you consistently deliver great work, there’s opportunity for more hours if desired.
To be considered, please write a cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org as to why you’d be a good fit in the body of your email. DO NOT send a resume or other attachments (your application will not be read). We prioritize culture fit, attention to detail, and quality writing when selecting candidates. Show us how detail oriented you are.

You’ll be first-round screening with our does-it-all Operations & Editorial Strategist, Rachael Mare. Her favorite color is blue, so she’d love it if you put the word blue somewhere in your subject line when sending your letter.
Looking forward to meeting you!
