WallStreetZen is fast growing fintech startup that builds high quality stock analysis tools for the part-time investor, and we’re scaling up our content marketing.
This is a great opportunity for the right writer(s).
As a former freelance writer myself, I’ve been in your shoes. This is the role I dreamed of.
We have a constant pipeline of work with competitive comp. No more unpaid time hunting for gigs!
There’s also an opportunity to progress to senior writer or editor (if that’s what you want), and dive deep into content marketing and stock investing.
What’s the catch?
Like with investing, there’s no free lunch.
We offer unlimited work and competitive pay, with flexibility over your schedule.
But we care deeply about quality. We want every piece we write to be the best resource in Google.
So we seek out writers who obsess over their craft.
If you’re just looking to pad word count and crank out remixed Google research papers – this isn’t the right gig for you.
What will you be writing?
Informational content teaching users about stock investing (we’ll help you with this).
Writing objective, in-depth comparisons of different investing related products (including comparing our product with competitors – see example here)
Writing in-depth reviews of stock investing products
Showing users how to use features on our platform (like our stock screener)
You can review our blog and knowledge base for more examples.
You’re a natural-born writer! You probably spent a lot of time perfecting your craft, you have a strong grasp of grammar, and you enjoy the creative aspect of writing.
You’re organized and independent, but you love working in a collaborative and positive team environment
Able to respond intelligently to editing and feedback. We always provide constructive criticism, so you can expect a lot of editing back and forth at first.
We’ve found that the most successful writers have an eagerness to continually improve and get better at their craft
You want to grow in the role and give us the honor to grow your career with us
Ideally, you have some personal experience with investing (or at least a strong interest)
We pay competitive rates based on experience and performance. Please state your rate in your cover letter.
Please mention in your cover letter how you found this job post (i.e. Reddit)
We will pay additional incentive-based bonuses based on quality (and quantity if you can write more)
We offer a path toward advancement to senior writer and editing roles (if desired)
Our team is 100% remote, and we’re lucky to be supported by team members around the globe. Our users also come from around the world, but most are in the U.S and at the moment we focus on the U.S. stock market.
