About The Hustle

The Hustle is a fast-growing, San Francisco-based media company best known for its witty, no-nonsense newsletters that have educated and entertained readers since 2015. At the center of our success is our talented editorial team.

We've built our business through two primary services: Our weekday and Sunday emails, which deliver smart takes on business, technology, and culture news to more than 1 million loyal subscribers, and a thriving events business that connects an entrepreneurial-minded audience with some of the world's most successful business founders.

This June, we're launching a subscription email service that highlights emerging business trends and how entrepreneurs can capitalize on them.

The ideal candidate will have experience scraping websites, analyzing public filings, and surfacing accurate financial information, as well as expertise in creating proprietary databases and producing compelling data visualizations.

Must be an adaptable self-starter capable of thinking critically about solving problems for an entrepreneurial-minded audience.

This role can be based in our San Francisco office, but we're also open to remote workers.

 - An understanding of, and interest in, entrepreneurship and how to grow a business

- Experience in a fast-paced newsroom or startup environment, where priorities can shift as the audience's needs evolve

 - A consumer-first perspective and adaptable, can-do spirit

 - Minimum 3 years of professional research and writing experience

 - Medical, dental, and vision insurance

 - 401(k) plan

 - Flexible Spending Account
