Lifehacker is looking for a Senior Finance Writer, which means we’re looking for a particular kind of person: Our finance writers cover specialized topics, but those topics need to be explained in an approachable, down-to-earth way. In other words, you’re not writing for the Financial fucking Times, and you should be able to say things like “fucking” while maintaining your authority on the subjects you care about.
It’s a full-time job with an amazing team of writers who enjoy helping people, and your role within that team would obviously be everything related to financial decisions: Our finance advice spans from basics like budgeting and retirement, to more complicated and niche areas like cryptocurrencies and NFTs. The expertise is important, obviously, but so is the ability to give smart advice for a wide range of readers. That means being opinionated and confident, but also thoughtful and empathetic.
This is a senior role, so prior experience is required. You should basically be smarter than me when it comes to money (and I know a decent amount).
Pitching ideas is often the hardest part; we’ve been writing for so long that it can sometimes feel like we’ve covered everything to death already. But if you’re curious, opinionated, and able to explain complicated financial concepts in a way that others can understand, you’ll enjoy it here. There’s student loans, salary negotiation, airline miles, inflation, taxes, deals, scams, and things I’m too oblivious to know to suggest, so suffice it to say, there’s a lot of advice you can give.
This is also a union job with a minimum $72K salary, per our union contract. You can be in New York, Chicago, or Los Angeles. If you want to apply, here’s the link—just be thoughtful, experienced, kind, and fun. That’s what we strive for, anyway.
