|An award-winning independent illustrated book publisher located in San Rafael, CA, is looking for a skilled Project Editor to join the editorial team. We operate with an extremely collaborative and creative mentality focusing on superlatively designed and produced volumes on film, music, photography, gaming, art, and other aspects of popular culture.|
The Project Editor conceptualizes, acquires, and manages new projects for our publishing program and develops these titles as they make their way through the manuscript, design, production, and marketing processes, championing each project from start to finish and taking responsibility for the editorial quality and integrity of each work.
This position is designed to be independent and innovative, requiring an individual who is experienced, ambitious, flexible, self-motivated, detail-oriented, and able to work with and coordinate teams.
