Job Description


The main responsibility of a fact checker/copy editor is to be the last line of defense against any errors in our articles. You’re looking for inaccuracies and instilling trust in our readers by ensuring a bulletproof product. You don't have to be an expert of the facts in our stories themselves but you have the tools and know how to verify them.


Fact check and copy edit all content for MagnifyMoney and LendingTree, including video, graphics, special reports, and written stories.


  • Determine what information needs to be fact checked-- from birth dates to quotes to ages and mathematical calculations 
  • Follow-up with sources when necessary to verify personal or professional details about themselves that are cited in our story 
    • ex: Are you Laurie Johnson from Tucson, Arizona and are you currently 30 years old? How do you spell your first and last name? Did you really pay down $25,000 worth of debt?
  • When a writer makes a calculation, double check their math.
  • When the team receives infographics, you will double check the text to be sure it matches the original source
  • Work with writers when necessary to verify facts


  • You’re a grammar hound and you have an eagle's eye for typos and other errors that can affect our credibility with readers.
  • You will copy edit regular articles as well as videos, infographics and basically anything with text that appears on our site

Job Requirements


  • 3+ years of editing and fact checking experience, preferably on a copy edit desk
  • Must have a excellent attention to detail and work with writers to ensure that all information in stories is accurate.
  • At the end of the day, our ability to get it right is how we establish trust with our readers and we need a team player who understands the importance of accuracy
