Careers At Proofed

Our Mission

At Proofed, we strive to provide the highest-quality proofreading and editing services in the world. To do this, we’ve built a community of highly qualified freelance editors who work alongside our in-house team to deliver outstanding results for customers around the globe. 

However, we’re always looking for dedicated, intelligent people to join our team. So, if you think you would fit the role, we’d love to hear from you.


Our talented editors are the lifeblood of our company. And while our team includes individuals from all sorts of backgrounds, we are united by a love of writing and editing.

So, if you’re passionate about language and love helping people enhance their written work, you’d fit right in at Proofed! Find out more about the benefits of working with us below.

What We Offer

Amazing Work–Life Balance

We believe that a great work–life balance is crucial to health and happiness, so we let our proofreaders choose their own hours and workload. This means you can work when you want and where you want, designing a schedule that fits around your lifestyle. 


A Team-Oriented Culture

We want our editors to thrive. So, even though you’ll work remotely, we have a dedicated support team on hand to guide you through our training, editing processes, and guidelines. We’ll also provide helpful feedback, so you can keep on honing your editing skills.

Fast, Transparent Payment

Our per-project payment makes it easy to decide which jobs you want to take on. We also show you how much you’ll be paid for all documents before you accept them, and you’ll receive your payments promptly, making this a reassuringly simple process.

What We Look For

The Ideal Candidate

Our perfect editor is meticulous, passionate, able to work to deadlines, and a first-class communicator. Ideally, you will hold a PhD or master’s degree and have at least three years’ experience in proofreading, editing, or writing. You must also have excellent English skills and be able to follow written instructions, work independently, and adapt to different writing styles.

We require all of our editors to be proficient in the major applications used for preparing and presenting written documents (e.g. Adobe Acrobat and Microsoft Word). In addition, you must have access to a high-speed internet connection and Microsoft Word 2016+.

Experienced candidates can apply directly by uploading a resume and cover letter.

If you do not have enough experience, or you’re looking to brush up on your skills and become a proofreading expert, you can enroll in our 5-star-reviewed proofreading course via Proofreading Academy. We developed this as the gold standard for all Proofed editors. Graduates with a score of 80% or higher will be offered the opportunity to undertake a trial as a freelance proofreader with Proofed.


We actively encourage equal opportunity employment and enjoy working with people from diverse backgrounds and cultures. We also seek to hire editors with expertise in a wide range of subjects, so if you have a unique area of interest, let us know in your application.
