Investment Blogger/Editor (Freelance)

Wyatt Investment Research, a Vermont-based investment research company and online content publisher, seeks to hire an Investment Blogger.

The Investment Blogger will be responsible for researching and writing short-format breaking news articles related to the financial markets and individual stocks for our web site.

We seek an Investment Blogger who can quickly digest the day-to-day events affecting financial markets, and interpret this news for our audience of over 400,000 individual investors. The right candidate will be able to interpret the current events in the context of our firm’s investment research, and be able to write articles that relate to our paid subscription publications.

Specifically, we are looking for unique web / audio / video articles related to:

  • Major news that is affecting the financial markets and individual stocks
  • Individual stocks that are rising or falling dramatically in price
  • Summary of sectors and stocks that are in the news
  • Stock screens based on specific investment criteria

We are seeking a prolific writer who is comfortable working in a fast-paced work environment. Experience with present ideas in audio or video is preferable as well. Our expectations are that this Investment Blogger will file between four and eight stories per day in a variety of media formats (written, audio, video).

The right candidate for this position will have personal and / or professional experience with both investments and journalism / publishing. A passion for the financial markets and an understanding of the topics that are on the mind of individual investors is required.

We expect that the Investment Blogger will be a motivated self-starter who is prepared to generate article ideas and pitch those to our Managing Editor. Additionally, the right candidate must be a strong writer whose writing needs little copy-editing.

This is a full-time salaried position in our Richmond, Vermont office. We offer our employee’s competitive salaries, a 401k-retirement account, health insurance, dental insurance, cash bonuses, profit sharing, and a wellness stipend among other benefits.

Interested candidates should email a cover letter explaining why they are perfect for this job along with a resume. Applications without a cover letter will not be considered. Please no phone calls. Instead, email your cover letter and resume to [email protected].
