The PanAm Post has an immediate opening for an editor and translator, with a focus on translations from English to Spanish and copyediting of Spanish. With more than a dozen columnists and an even greater number of bloggers — evenly split between Spanish and English — this individual would facilitate the swift processing and release of this growing supply of content in both languages.
Reporting to the editor and chief, the individual would work remotely, from 7:00 am to 4:00 p.m. EST/EDT during the week. While the location is flexible and the outlet’s base is in Miami, an ideal candidate would be in a major urban center in Latin America.
