Join our team.


Ultimo Press is seeking a dynamic editor to join our growing team. Ultimo Press aims to be one of Australia’s most vibrant and exciting publishers, focused on the heart of the market, and home to our most talented and creative storytellers.


As editor you will work closely with our authors to finesse and perfect their text, and provide editorial support to our publishing team to ensure that Ultimo Press maintains the highest editorial standards. We are a small team, so the editor will also be involved in design and production processes, and ensure marketing and publicity material adheres to our house style.


In-house or freelance editorial experience is preferred. The successful candidate will be a team player with a keen eye for detail, the ability to liaise with multiple stakeholders, and exceptional organisational skills. Familiarity with Firebrand or similar bibliographic programs would be a plus.


Ultimo has offices in Melbourne and Sydney, but remote work is an option for the right candidate. The salary will be based on the MEAA Book Industry Award wage for a grade 3.1 editor and commensurate with experience. Ultimo Press is committed to creating a diverse, inclusive and equitable workplace. We welcome job applications from people with diverse backgrounds and experience.


Please email your application with a cover letter and CV to by 5pm Thursday 23 September. Applications that demonstrate an understanding of Ultimo Press and our ambitions will be highly regarded. A full job description can be found here.
