Detail-Oriented Fact-Checker Wanted [CLOSED]

Part Time 8.00 USD Type: Hourly

Are You a Fact-Checker Who Obsesses Over Little Details and Information Accuracy?

Are you looking for part-time freelance work that you can do from anywhere? This might be the role for you!

But This Isn’t Your Typical Freelance Fact-Checking Job...

Cloudwards.net is a leading online publication providing information, news, articles and interviews for cloud-based software. We reach over 1,200,000 visitors monthly and continue to grow month after month.

We're looking to strengthen our editorial team with another part-time fact-checking editor who is ready to dive into the nitty-gritty details of cloud-based technology (with a focus on backup, storage, project management and VPNs). If that sounds like a good fit for you, keep reading to see what we offer and what we expect.

5 Reasons to Join Cloudwards as a Fact-Checker

Help Support Journalistic Integrity

Fact-checking is an integral part of journalism to make sure the information we communicate is accurate. This role will help ensure the integrity of our content! We value honesty and transparency, and we never sacrifice quality for quantity.

Strong Editorial Guidance & Training

Fact-checkers will go through a training period so they understand their responsibilities.

Remote Work

We are a fully remote team with workers all over the world, from California and Mexico to Kenya and Cyprus. As long as you are fluent in English and you have a consistent WiFi connection, where you live is up to you.

Set Your Own Hours

Great people don’t necessarily do their best work by staring at a monitor for 8 hours straight every day. So at Cloudwards, you’ll have the flexibility to design a schedule that allows you to do your best work from anywhere in the world. We require that you can keep pace with the editorial needs and to attend one meeting each week.

Grow With Us

We’re a fast-growing company, which means lots of growth opportunities for our high performers. If you prove to be reliable, your role could be extended or expanded to include other responsibilities.

About the Role

Cloudwards.net is looking to hire a part-time fact-checking editor. This will be a contractor role with around 10-20 hours of commitment each week.

The average time per article for fact-checking is about two to three hours. We currently publish 15-20 articles each week, but we aim to publish 20-25 within the next few months. We have one current fact-checking editor, and we are looking to hire another person to split the fact-checking responsibilities.

Most of the articles will be within the editorial flow and will require prompt fact-checking to make sure articles can be published on time. However, there will be some other articles that need fact-checking that are already published.

Cloudwards often promotes from within its team, so there is a chance for career growth from this position.

Required Skills:

  • Must be able to work independently but be able to communicate with the editorial team.
  • Must be a fluent or native English speaker.
  • Be able to communicate clearly in a professional, friendly manner.
  • Able to work with our project management tool (currently Trello), communication tool (Zulip), Google Docs.
  • Must be able to work in a timely manner so that editorial articles can be published on schedule.
  • Ideally should have an interest in cloud-based technology, like VPNs, cloud storage and project management.

What Fact-Checking Looks Like:

  • Read through an article to determine which facts need to be checked, using a color-coding system.
  • Use online research skills to verify facts in articles and determine how to make the information in articles more accurate.
  • If some part of the article seems to be inaccurate, add comments or questions to the article documents for the writers’ review.
  • Double check links in articles to make sure they include the information sourced in the article.
  • When necessary, reach out to a service’s customer support to get the answer to a question.

If you’re interested in this position, please apply through the application form link. The position pay starts at USD $8 per hour, depending on experience. If we think you could be a good fit, we will have you progress through our evaluation process, which includes an unpaid fact-checking trial and a video interview.
