At Stratfor, we're looking for skilled wordsmiths with a knack for navigating complex terrain and decoding intricate ideas; writer-editors who can work with our analysts to present concepts and assessments that will shape the perceptions of global influencers.
Some people are natural content editors, getting deep into the weeds of a written argument to bring clarity and focus. Other folks are natural copy editors, with a meticulous eye for grammatical and factual accuracy. Members of Stratfor's publishing team must be equally adept at both. The nature of the work we do requires mental flexibility, intellectual curiosity and tenacious thinking. You should excel at communicating complex ideas in clear and compelling ways. We need talented professionals who sweat the details, take pride in their work, and don't accept "good enough."
Having a healthy interest in travel, geography, people, international affairs and the global system is a definite advantage, but you don't need a degree in political science to thrive on our team. There's more to this job than meets the eye, and you'll be working with people and subject matter that will keep you sharp. If you're a driven, talented communicator interested in seeing the world in a different way, you might just be the person we're looking for. Stratfor, an equal opportunity employer, measures people by their merits, irrespective of their backgrounds.
Essential Qualities, Desirable Experience
Comfortable and experienced editors of dense, analytic prose of various lengths.
Hungry to learn — even if you don't know all the answers, understand the right questions to ask.
Professional writing experience — we don't always have time to cover the basics.
Experience taking ownership of projects and assignments.
Strong collaborative tendencies and the ability to add value in a small but talented team.
Patience and perseverance — you can't be deterred by the first hiccup.
The ability to graciously give and receive feedback, including constructive criticism.
A character that inspires confidence — you should be proactive in all matters.
Committed to ethical integrity — we're an analysis- and information-based organization, and we can't compromise our standards.
Familiarity with the latest content management systems, SEO practices and social platforms is a definite bonus.
