COPY EDITOR

The Cedar Rapids Gazette is looking for a talented copy editor with a love of language, good grammar skills and some experience with design software. Working in an evolving, fast-paced newsroom, the ideal candidate will be versatile, attentive to detail and cool under pressure. The job consists of editing journalism for style, context and accuracy, writing headlines and laying out news pages. Our ideal candidate will have advanced understanding of editing for context and maximum audience impact. This position requires a confident decision maker who is highly organized and works well under tight deadlines. The job requires editing of national and international wire news, so attention to major current events is essential.

Our organization:

Our news operation is converged and combines digital, print and broadcast for The Gazette, TheGazette.com, KCRG-TV9, kcrg.com, as well as several niche sites. Our company has a strong tradition of being independent and is employee-owned. The majority of our news team is focused on enterprise reporting and we have a strong spirit of collaboration with other news outlets. While we’re focused on Cedar Rapids -- Iowa’s second-largest city – we have bureaus in Des Moines, Dubuque and Iowa City. The region is rich with things to do outside of work hours.

Qualifications & Requirements:

The ideal candidate will be a self-motivated problem solver who works well on a team and has excellent communication skills. Candidate must be highly organized, a confident decision maker and committed to ongoing improvement and coaching. The successful candidate will have strong editing skills and sound news judgment.  This position requires a degree in journalism or related field and at least two years of related experience. A pre-employment drug screen is required.
