    INVESTOR PLACE LOGO

     

    InvestorPlace.com, a fast-growing site with 3mm+ monthly readers, is searching for a passionate Web Editor to join our team!

     

    We’re looking for editors who enjoy deconstructing complex arguments as much they enjoy devouring quarterly reports and driving users to articles. But we will “settle” for editors who love working a newsroom and clearing stacks of copy.

     

    If your knowledge of financial markets begins and ends with Billions (and who doesn’t love Damian Lewis??) don’t fret -- we will give you the education you need to succeed.

     

    Responsibilities

    • Act as the last line last line of defense in thwarting logical fallacies, cleaning up rough grammar and ensuring complete factual accuracy.
    • Responsible for single-page stories and galleries, checking facts, cleaning up grammar and optimizing for organic traffic.
    • Work with content to collaborate with freelance writers to publish their best work possible.
    • Edit between eight to 10 articles in our WordPress CMS, with most pieces running about 750 words in length. This involves editing heavily for clarity and accuracy and spend a lot of energy tweaking headlines to resonate with our audience and ensure our content tops Google’s first page.
    • Monitor the homepage, post to our social media feeds, create training videos, brand-building through outside bylines and media opportunities, among many other tasks off the beaten path.
    • Assist with additional strategic design projects utilizing Photoshop and Dreamweaver

     

    Qualifications

    • 0-3 years of experience in financial media or digital experience preferred
    • Knowledge in the stock market and investment strategies preferred but not required
    • A four-year degree in Journalism/English preferred but not required
    • Past experience working with WordPress or similar CMS is a plus
    • Strong interest in the news
