Job Opening: Ouur Editor (Copenhagen, Denmark)
Ouur is opening applications for an experienced Editor to work on new and existing editorial projects within the company. This will include concepting and assisting in the development of new print and digital media projects under Ouur, providing editorial support to the Kinfolk team as well as writing concise, engaging copy for publications and marketing material for all of Ouur’s media projects. We’re looking for someone who loves to write engaging, sophisticated copy, revels in the details, can spot a dangling participle at ten paces and is full of both fresh ideas and the dedication to see them through from genesis to completion.
We’re always on the lookout for creative minds.
The Kinfolk and Ouur teams are composed of exceptionally positive, solid, hard-working people from around the world who have come together in our two offices in Copenhagen, Denmark, and in Portland, Oregon. Although we often don’t have openings or if our current listings don’t suit you, we always enjoy hearing from folks who’d like to get involved. We value resourcefulness, efficiency and humility, and love to work with down-to-earth people who think outside the box.
If that sounds like you, we keep a rolling list of individuals on file who inspire us. Whenever a need arises for more hands on deck, we go through the collected pool of portfolios to see if anyone can help us out. If you’d like to throw your creative hat in the ring to be considered for future projects (either as a freelancer or as a job opportunity), please feel free to fill out the below form.

Create an account through the link below, then submit the form on the following page.
All candidates should submit an application with: 1) a cover letter, 2) their résumé and 3) a portfolio or samples of their work (either as links or PDF).
Internships are available
Kinfolk offers a three-month training and work experience program with a broad scope that will teach you about many elements of working in the publishing industry (administrative, production, editorial, fulfillment, print, etc.). You will experience all aspects of the magazine world, such as being pulled in to help with photo shoots or editorial assistance, but the position will also be heavily clerical—unfortunately emails and Excel documents are part of everyday life here. The tasks and activities are designed to enrich the intern with valuable skills transferable to the intern’s future career.
Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis for any of the terms, but decisions will be made roughly 6–8 weeks prior to term start date.
We’re no longer accepting applications for the summer term.
We’re accepting applications for fall and winter 2015.
