Morning Brew seeks an energetic and enthusiastic editor for our personal finance newsletter Money Scoop newsletter, which uses wit and smarts to help 250,000+ subscribers get the most out of their money.
Money Scoop was founded on the belief that millennials don’t actually spend money all that differently than the generations before them; they just have less of it. Which means they want more tips and tricks to make money work for them beyond the basics. Money Scoop offers accessible, judgment-free guidance on how to evaluate, then decisively take, those next steps.
If you’re interested in Wall Street scoops and financial scandals, this isn’t the job for you. But if investing, taxes, jobs reports, budgeting, credit cards, and retirement savings excite you, this is where it’s at.
This role will be instrumental in the development and execution of stories, series, and editorial packages both within and beyond the newsletter.
The ideal candidate is passionate about how financial markets and economic systems affect the every person’s wallet. You should be able to look at copy about head-spinning topics and make that complexity accessible to our readers. You’ll work with our writers to encourage precision, clarity, accuracy, and a strong, memorable voice. We aim to never be boring or stuffy—no small task for a topic like this.
This job will require you to work cross-functionally with copy editors, fact-checkers, designers, growth and social leads, and engineers. Being a team player and getting along with peers is essential. You should also be flexible: We’re in high-growth mode at Morning Brew and a game-for-anything attitude is a must.
Candidates with at least three years of experience editing personal finance content are strongly preferred. Have you worked as a financial advisor or hold a CFP, CPA, CFA, or master’s degree in a business field such as finance, accounting, economics, statistics? Even better.
Morning Brew is based in New York City but this role is remote-friendly for all candidates.
Character and integrity rank pretty high on the list. Our team is guided by our core values:
While being surrounded by a bunch of cool people who look great in crewnecks is its own reward, we have plenty more to offer.
Morning Brew is committed to building a diverse and inclusive team that’s representative of our audience.
