Who are Wonderbly?
Wonderbly is a unique, award-winning start-up that lives on the intersection of storytelling, engineering, digital and print. We are building a global personal-publishing business that brings millions of people into our products – as co-creators and audiences We are best known for our first title, Lost My Name, which is read by over 4 million children and their families globally. We are releasing a new title every few months and now have 18 books in our range.
Our focus in the near future is with the children’s book market – creating stunning, uncompromisingly high quality and technically ambitious personalised books for kids.
We’re in the business of sparking kids’ imaginations; inspiring them to read & to learn as well as build confidence and self-belief. May 2019 sees a relaunch of our website and material to back up that positioning.
About the role
Wonderbly is looking for wonderful Dutch-speaking editors/proof-readers, who can work closely with our copywriters to ensure the highest standard content for our international markets.
It’s our editor’s job to ensure that the copy we use across all our comms to customers is on brand, appropriately localised and free of errors.
It’s a chance to help to create humorous, lively and all-around-fun copy for a company that is dedicated to making children more clever, curious and kind (and making them laugh, too).
What you will do
The role is to edit/proof-read content written by our marketing copywriters. The proofing is to ensure there are no errors in the copy but also to feedback on the quality and content of what is written.
Whilst our copywriters generally retain the final call on what is written, our editors offer support in ideas on how to improve the copy and ensure that it is suitable for the audience in that particular market.
We expect our copywriters and editors to work in quite a collaborative way but are flexible in what this means for each language team.
All of the content is for marketing, brand and editorial purposes across our website and digital marketing channels. Therefore having an editor with experience working with e-commerce brands and with an understanding of paid marketing channels such as Facebook and PPC is a huge benefit.
In addition to this, our editors should, of course, know their market extremely well – preferably from the view point of digital marketing.
