Curiosity and critical thinking skills are very important in this home-based role.

From the company:

“The best person for the job is adept at seeing the big picture within a story, be it one about a new study on the rainforests, a NASA discovery, or why a visual internet meme tickles our brains so much…The ideal editor is also a savvy internet operator who values story packaging, and knows that in order to build a loyal, engaged audience, every story needs to be stunning in its own way — whether it be a clever headline, a compelling header image, or a brilliant union of the two.”
