They require writing and editing experience in the K-12 educational publishing and e-learning fields and a very good background in the relevant subject.

    Responsibilities

    Senior editors are responsible for the content and quality of all assigned projects, as well as the editors under his or her supervision. The editor or senior editor will edit, revise, and/or rewrite all material, ensuring that the content:

    • You would also ensure, by editing, revising, or even rewriting if needed, that all the content and materials developed for your projects are accurate and age- and audience-appropriate; and that the work meets the standards and criteria required for that project by clients, Victory's own standards for quality, and relevant local, state, or national standards. You would ensure that client deadlines and milestones are met, too, and work with our outstanding team of project coordinators to achieve this.
    • Meetings with clients and stakeholders to coordinate and move projects forward occur regularly, and may require travel to client or company sites on occasion.
    • Senior editors help develop and mentor editorial staff. Senior editors also have the opportunity to further hone their own skills through working with Victory's top-notch editorial directors and supervising editors.
