We are looking for motivated and professional creatives passionate about Japan to join our growing team of producing editors.

You will work closely with other team members on a variety of tourism-related content projects covering the boozy backstreets of Shinjuku to the rugged wilderness of northern Hokkaido.

The role:

Producing editors are involved in every stage of content production from legacy content auditing and planning through to production and delivery. You will have full ownership of the production projects assigned to you and will need to communicate closely with other internal teams to ensure their successful completion.

  • Writing, editing and proofreading English content with an unwavering emphasis on quality
  • Translating Japanese source texts and evaluating translated English texts
  • Sourcing, evaluating and working closely with freelance writers, editors and translators

  • Developing and managing glossaries, style guides and other resources to ensure consistency across projects

What we value in our producing editors:

  • Teamwork—highly-refined communication skills and a positive team-player attitude
  • Linguistic prowess—an impeccable command of the English language, and fluency in Japanese (strongly desired)
  • Proven track record—extensive experience writing, translating, proofreading and editing Japan-related content for the web and/or printed media
  • Adaptability—able to adjust quickly and easily to different projects and varying client needs
  • Creativity—an ability to question the status quo and come up with new and exciting ways of doing things
  • Passion—a keen interest in travel, nature and the outdoors, and all things JAPAN
