Full-Time Freelance Editor

We make happier couples.

We do this by making it easier to discover, agree on, and do the things you want to do together. We noticed there was a huge focus on dating apps over the past decade, but not a lot of answers to what happens after. Life after the swipe is totally underrated.

We're starting with date night, and answering the often infuriating question: "What do you want to do tonight?" It's tough to figure out how to spend your hard-earned time and money together. That's why we're here. When you both swipe right on a date idea, it's a match. We’ll handle the rest. You just keep digging each other.

Now, with most of us staying indoors for the time being, our team has quickly enhanced and extended the content in Cobble! Now you and your partner can figure out what to do at home. New categories include: Film & TV, Cooking & Baking, Takeout & Delivery, Activities, Virtual Events, and so much more.

We are excitedly searching for a wonderful Full-Time Freelance Editor to join our close-knit team. We hope that's you!


Overview

Cobble is looking for a thoughtful, dynamic editor to join our fast-growing editorial team. Launching soon in more cities, we are seeking a full-time freelance editor to help edit our growing base of content before launch as well as ongoing weekly assignments. The perfect candidate is a witty and smart wordsmith with a keen sense of what makes a place or activity worthwhile and special. Editors will use a deep understanding of the Cobble tone, style, and language to edit hundreds of cool spots and activities in NYC, Miami, and At-Home. If this sounds like a dream, we wanna hear from you.

Each write-up (what we call a card) follows a simple outline and averages around 2-3 sentences in length. Editors will have access to a style guide, other internal resources, and a team that is always accessible.


What to expect

Our new editor will work directly with the editorial director and our writers to advance content, suggest improvements, and report progress. They should have experience editing multiple freelance writing pieces concurrently, and be able to confidently manage their workload and deadlines. Cobble also publishes other types of content, such as guides on the website and a weekly newsletter -- new content and editing opportunities often pop-up and the flexibility and desire to take on new projects is a must. Other than the editorial team, there’s a lot of cross-department collaboration with the social media and product teams, our ideal candidate is comfortable working with colleagues at all levels of the company.

You will be a crucial part of a tight-knit editorial team at a fast-growing startup! While this is a freelance gig, we'd love to create a consistent, long-term working relationship if everyone is happy!


Salary between $25-$40k based on hours and experience.
