Description:

NerdWallet is looking for an experienced writer who is passionate about helping readers make smart choices as they decide to buy or refinance a home, save for a down payment, explore homebuyer assistance programs, and compare mortgages, mortgage rates, and lenders.

Telling compelling and significant stories is only part of your job. Ultimately you own a piece of the NerdWallet library and have a goal to create the internet's best answers for the readers you represent.

You will spend a significant amount of time researching and refining the advice we provide, then dig even deeper into consumer pain points to figure out the best next step. You will learn and use the best practices for search optimization to ensure that those who need help can easily find it. You will find ways to measure your success and build on it, to lead the way for an entire team when you’ve found something new and to learn from others as they do the same.

Your day may involve writing a feature for syndication, updating a search answer, gathering data for lender ratings, building the case for a new category of content, testing a calculator or quiz, editing a colleague’s work, pitching in on a presentation for the content team, or working closely with one of our cross-vertical partners on the product or marketing teams.

You will also want to help build a business and contribute to a positive working environment. You're comfortable with change and taking constructive criticism. You work with equal enthusiasm whether you’re a project leader or team member.

That's what it takes to thrive at NerdWallet. Our content team is 80+ strong and includes writers and editors with experience from Bloomberg, Dow Jones, the Los Angeles Times, MSN, Reuters, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post.

What we have in common: We take initiative. We think strategically. We problem solve effectively. We're adaptable. We're highly collaborative.
