Description
We are looking for a Spanish editor with a sharp eye for detail and a passion for education to join our team full-time as an Associate Editor in our San Mateo office. You would experience online publishing at its fullest with our Quia Books product. We work in partnership with leading educational publishers to convert printed textbooks and workbooks into online books which are used in hundreds of universities throughout North America. Our online books are more than just mere replicas of printed versions; they are fully interactive and incorporate audio, video, and other forms of digital media.

As an Associate Editor, you would be responsible for reviewing Spanish activities after they’ve been converted to an online format.

It is important that you are comfortable working with computers and have the capacity to learn new software quickly. You should be fluent in Spanish, have prior proofreading or copy-editing experience, and preferably have a background in teaching. By joining the Book Development team, you will be integral in helping the team to release our online books with the utmost quality.

* Evaluate material from an instructional perspective and apply in-house grading guidelines.
* Suggest edits to adapt print activities to an online setting, while ensuring engaging instructional content.
* Develop a familiarity with HTML and CSS and how to apply them to our online books.

Qualifications

* Bachelor’s or Master’s degree; recommended degrees include, but are not limited to: Education, Instructional Technology, Linguistics, Spanish, Comparative Literature.
* Fluency in Spanish (though you need not be a native speaker).
