Hooked is seeking an Assistant Editor to support its Editorial Director (formerly from Hachette and PRH) and Associate Editor (formerly from Curtis Brown). This position combines detail-oriented and creative work. We’re looking for someone who is a talented creative writer and clear communicator. The applicant should also be professional, responsible, and able to work both independently and collaboratively.

Job Responsibilities:
• Serve as a crucial checkpoint in our editorial process by proofreading, formatting and uploading chat fiction stories.
• Become part of the editorial team by organizing and evaluating submissions.
• Act as a liaison with agents and writers by managing contracts, author forms, and payments.
• Write original content to create intellectual property, expand projects, and supplement stories.
• Provide administrative support as needed.

Qualifications/Skills Required:

Our Assistant Editor should embrace popular culture and love to read a wide range of fiction. We’re seeking someone with excellent time management, organizational and communication skills.

Only candidates with a minimum of 1-2 years of experience in some facet of publishing and a bachelor’s degree in a relevant field should apply. Please note that this is not an entry-level position; we are looking for someone who is well-versed in the traditional publishing industry and is fascinated by the challenge of applying their current background to the tech world.

You should be comfortable with remote work as many of our employees are on the West Coast. The editorial staff will have weekly meetings in New York, but most of the time you will need to manage your workload from home or at our co-working space.
