Outside is looking for a multitalented fact-checker editor to join the cross-platform editorial team at Outside Magazine and Outside Online.

  • Fact checking print and online features as well as print front-of-book stories.
  • Fact checking occasional online stories

  • Strong writing and editing skills
  • Attention to detail and problem-solving skills
  • Well-organized and ability to manage time and multiple projects
