CLOSED - Secret City Trails is looking for a Content Editor (part-time, freelance)

About us:
Our mission is to preserve the authenticity of cities through the power of play. Secret City Trails takes travellers and locals on urban adventures - or city discovery games. During the games you solve a trail of riddles via our web app. Using a web app means no downloads are needed, just a little data. As you solve the riddles you explore a city's hidden gems and unlock stories about the sights and area you are in, as well as (secret) recommendations to wonderful cafes and bars. The trails are a playful, off-the-beaten-track and self-guided way of discovering a city.

We work with local game builders to develop the games, (anyone can sign up on our platform to bring a game to their city!) and our aim is to have a community of over 300 game builders. This means we're on the hunt for a detail oriented editor to help review game content & marketing content.

About the role:
As our content editor, you focus on helping us launch high-quality experiences across all the cities in Europe. Copy editing the content (riddles & stories) of the games developed by local builders will be the priority. Occasionally, you’ll also help copy write or - edit marketing content.


Your day-to-day tasks include

  • Proofreading and copy-editing spelling, grammar and syntax of our city discovery games

  • Ensuring that game content matches the structure of our riddles and follows our tone of voice and style

  • Organising, modifying and updating existing game content

  • Verifying content and information

Your skills

  • Excellent command of the English language (native English preferred) - we use UK English

  • Experience with writing, copy editing and proofreading

  • Incredible attention to detail

  • Good communication skills

  • Highly organised

Your attitude

  • you have a burning desire to get *shit* done

  • you propose new ideas beyond your daily role; you help us build a great company!

  • you enjoy challenges and an unstructured environment

Why join?

We're a small team with a lot of space for growth. You get out what you put int. We're in a sunny office downtown Lisbon. We are part of a growing and international startup community at Startup Lisboa. We have flexible working culture. This role will be for 1-2 days per week and can be done remotely. Payment per day is 80-150 euros/ depending on experience.
