Description:

The Fly is a leading digital publisher of real-time financial news. Our mission is simple, but not easy: report and explain the news impacting publicly traded companies. 

We’re looking for a Staff Writer, preferably with experience in financial writing and editing. Prior reporting on publicly traded companies and coverage of analyst research notes will be considered major pluses. The position will be located in either our Summit, NJ or Bayside, NY office. Being able to excel in a fast paced environment is a must.

Successful candidates must be able to quickly read through company press releases, websites, Twitter posts, blog reports, and SEC filings to find pertinent financial information that will immediately be converted into headlines and short summaries for The Fly's live news feed. 

Deep knowledge of the financial markets will be developed over time.

The Fly strongly believes in rewarding performance and has a demonstrated history of rapidly promoting high-performers. 

The ideal candidate:

  • Must have an active interest in stocks and financial markets
  • Has a proven ability to write clear, concise, and compelling content for online audiences
  • Can conduct engaging interviews and build rapport with external contacts in investor relations and executive teams
  • Takes direction for assignments but demonstrates initiative in researching topics
  • Possesses outstanding interpersonal communication skills
  • Thrives in meeting aggressive time goals
  • Must live in New Jersey or New York
