About the Role:
This is a position for a quick-witted, strong-voiced personal finance writer who is excited to help other people “live their best lives”— but in a productive and delightful sort of way, rather than as an Oprah mantra. If you’re a financial know-it-all who keeps up with government fiscal policy, has an opinion on cryptocurrencies, and loves to debate "good" versus "bad" financial moves, you'll fit in well with the Lifehacker team.
Have at least 2 years of experience writing about personal finance for a fast-paced online publication;
Be capable of turning around stories ranging from news stories to longer features at a quick pace;
Be comfortable asserting your opinion and substantiating why your financial advice is sound;
Be comfortable working across mediums, including video and podcasts;
Be eager to brainstorm about how to expand Lifehacker's coverage, and to work in a fun, collaborative environment.
G/O Media is deeply committed to fostering a transparently inclusive workplace environment, and people of color, women, people with disabilities, veterans, and LGBTQIA+ candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. Our company-wide mission is to reach very diverse audiences, and so, we are deeply committed to having teams and leaders that reflect this mission.
This position is not remote and will report in office.
This is a position covered under the collective bargaining agreement with the WGA-E.
