InvestorPlace.com is a fast-growing investing financial web site looking for an Assistant Editor to edit and publish 7 to 10 stories each day in our WordPress-based system.

This is the perfect job for a journalist looking to build their skills and start a career in digital publishing. Your primary duty will be deceptively simple: Stay top of our submissions to get articles up on the site promptly and with no errors. These stories will be “actionable” articles about the stock market, urging investors to take action – so incorrect figures or sloppy copy can lose real people real money.

In short, we want you to edit super fast and super clean. No biggie.

Once you get the hang of our editorial strategy, you’ll then be called on to make assignments to freelancers and write the occasional story under your own byline. There are also opportunities to play with video, podcasts and social media if that’s your thing and you want to pad your resume.

This position has a lot of upside potential -- InvestorPlace Media continues to expand, and there are plenty of opportunities within this company if you succeed.

And on the off chance that you don’t want to work in this building for 100 years, you will have a black belt in digital media skills that will serve you well at any website later in your career.

Recent alumni of college newspapers will feel right at home with our irreverent but demanding work style. Problem-solving skills, self-confidence and a sense of humor are all crucial to avoid a nervous breakdown (micromanagement is decidedly not our thing).

Preference will be given to candidates who have experience with the stock market, business journalism or working an espresso machine.




We are serious about investing in talent, and the right candidate will have no barriers to success. We offer competitive salary and benefits, opportunities for professional development and a decent budget for any software, hardware or additional hires you need to get this job done right.

Please submit a cover letter and resume – indicate Job Code: AE.EH.GR in subject line of your email. Personal relocations only.
