Scribendi is looking for freelance editors with expertise in science, technology, engineering and/or mathematics. When we find the best editors, as we've been doing for over two decades, we provide them with a streamlined process, allowing them to focus on what they do best: editing.
As one of our talented freelance editors, you'll have the ability to work from home while choosing the types of assignments that interest you and editing completely on your own schedule. Our transparent, per-order pricing shows you how much a job is worth before you accept it. You can interact with both in-house staff and other freelancers through our online forums, and you'll also receive incentives that can be redeemed through online retailers. You won't have any of the hassles of bidding or pitching to clients, and you will be paid promptly.

You need to be comfortable downloading and uploading files, saving and finding files on your computer, transferring files, renaming files, and using a website interface. You should have a good working knowledge of the major document file formats and their associated software programs. Some ability to troubleshoot technical problems is also helpful.
