Role Overview

Cointelegraph is looking for an experienced copy editor to contribute to the clarity, consistency and accuracy of our content on a freelance basis. Our journalists are competent and astute, but no one is perfect — especially when writing on a deadline. Our copy editors have a keen eye for errors and a strong grasp on modern language, delivering both a concise text and an enjoyable reading experience. 

This position will work alongside our writers and content editors to edit articles as they are published during the Asia-Pacific news shift.


  • Correcting grammar, punctuation and word choice to enhance clarity and remove ambiguity
  • Verifying source material — i.e., making sure that quotes are accurate, the numbers add up, names are spelled correctly, etc.
  • Working with the copy desk team to improve upon and implement our style guide
  • Elevating the quality of the text while maintaining the writer’s voice


  • At least 1–2 years of experience as a copy editor
  • Knowledge of the crypto and blockchain space
  • A degree in English, journalism or a research/writing-focused discipline
  • Ability to edit at a rate of 1,000 words per hour
  • Available during the hours of 10:00 pm GMT – 2:00 am GMT


  • A working knowledge of AP style (while we do not follow AP exactly, the foundation of our style is based on it)
  • An interest in expanding their knowledge of Web3 and the blockchain industry
  • A desire to help standardize and develop the crypto news industry

Culture & Perks

  • Competitive rates
  • The ability to work remotely
  • The opportunity to expand your knowledge of a growing industry
