What You’ll Do:

  • Edit articles at a high volume in a way that’s accurate, big-picture and micro-detail oriented and compliant.  
  • Use in-house data and analytics to assess content performance and work with the managing editor to apply these learnings.
  • Manage and lead new content initiatives.
  • Manage multiple projects with strict (sometimes shifting) deadlines. 
  • Cut the jargon! Find ways to make credit and finance easier to understand.
  • Discover, establish and manage brand-appropriate content partnerships.
  • Work with the editorial team to create content to reach personas that’s in line with business objectives.
  • Work with our legal team to ensure content is compliant and in line with our editorial policy.  
  • Work with our SEO manager to create content-forward SEO strategy.
  • Mentor junior members of the team.
  • Collaborate with our social and community team to maximize content promotion.
  • Learn the ins and outs of our in-house CMS and publish stories / refresh existing content

What’s Great About It:

  • You’ll get to work with a bunch of different teams and have your hand in a lot of different projects.
  • You’ll have a key part in shaping editorial content strategy and goals.
  • You’ll produce stories that have the potential to reach a wide audience either through social, syndication or content partnerships.
  • Your stories will break down complex financial topics and news and make them accessible to millions of members.
  • You’ll be on an awesome team of grammar nerds and word lovers.
  • And, of course, all those awesome company perks that you probably already read about.

What We Expect:

  • 5-7 years of editing, writing and copy editing experience in a fast-paced environment (extra points if you’ve worked in financial services)
  • A bachelor’s degree that in some way relates to writing, editing or journalism (a master’s degree in one of these areas is a plus).
  • Familiarity with the tenets of SEO
  • Familiarity with an analytics platform (such as Google Analytics) is a plus
  • An excellent grasp of English grammar that’s balanced by an even stronger grasp of how people actually talk (experience with AP a plus)
  • The ability to prioritize and then reprioritize as needs change
