About Semrush

Online visibility management SaaS platform that has been used by over 10,000,000 marketers worldwide 🔥

Hi there! We are Semrush, a global IT company developing our own product — a platform for digital marketers.And we’re looking for talented Freelance Blog Editors who can maintain and even elevate the quality of our blog content so we become the ultimate resource for learning about SEO and digital marketing.

Tasks in the role:

  • Review content to ensure it is factually accurate, well-structured, engaging, and actionable
  • Proofread and edit content produced by your teammates and external writers
  • Apply Associated Press (AP) and in-house style to all content
  • Serve as a gatekeeper of content quality, ensuring that nothing reaches the live blog without living up to our new, high standards
  • Deliver detailed, actionable feedback to writers for every piece you edit
  • Refine our definition of content quality and apply new quality and style directives as needed
  • Stay up-to-date with trends and developments in SEO, web content, and digital marketing in general
  • Report editing trends, challenges, and opportunities to a Senior Blog Editor on a regular basis

Who we are looking for:

  • Strong substantive and line editing skills (4+ years of experience)
  • Hands-on experience in SEO and content marketing
  • In-depth knowledge of SEO and other digital marketing topics
  • Proven experience delivering detailed and actionable feedback in order to improve writers’ work
  • Strong project management and organization skills
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced, demanding environment, with multiple and sometimes shifting priorities
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team
  • A passion for and a strong understanding of the industry
  • Native-level English

They say there are no perfect candidates, but that might well be you, if you have:

  • Editorial experience in one or more internet marketing topics: SEO, paid search, social media marketing, content marketing
  • Experience using Semrush tools
  • Experience using project management tools

A bit about the team:

You’ll work with people who care a LOT about publishing great work. We’re on a mission to dramatically improve the quality of our blog content. With the goal of making the Semrush blog the best place in the world to learn SEO.

That makes this an opportunity to sharpen your skills. If you aren’t interested in growing as an editor, this role probably won’t be a good fit for you. It also won’t be a good fit if you don’t already have excellent editing skills. As a freelancer working with Semrush, you’ll be encouraged to focus on quality. But we are a business with goals to meet. Finding a balance between quality and output will be a key to success in this freelance role.

Finally, a little more about our company:

We’ve been developing our product for 14 years and have been awarded G2’s Top 100 Software Products, Global and US Search Awards 2021, Great Place to Work Certification, Deloitte Technology Fast 500 and many more. In March 2021 Semrush went public and started trading on the NYSE with the SEMR ticker.
