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