Job Description

Insider Inc. is hiring a full-time associate editor to work with freelance writers covering credit building and monitoring on our Personal Finance Insider team.

Personal Finance Insider (PFI) produces service journalism about money. We help our readers choose the right bank accounts, save more for retirement, pay off their student loans, buy their first homes, and more. We value creativity, accountability, and diversity of ideas and opinions.

The editor will oversee PFI’s credit coverage, including:

  • reviews of credit-building and monitoring products from debit cards to identity theft monitoring
  • explanations and breakdowns of how credit works and why it matters
  • answers to common credit questions 

Although this person will work closely with the credit cards editor to ensure coverage is inclusive and intersectional, this role will not specifically focus on credit cards. 

This is a more junior role for someone who wants to keep learning about editing. The ideal candidate will be organized, full of ideas, and enthusiastic about working with freelancers. This person is flexible and able to adapt quickly in a fast-paced newsroom. They are a team player who is excited about working in an inclusive environment and getting better every day. 

Some other skills that would make a candidate successful in this role:

  • General knowledge of principles and standards of journalism 
  • Some knowledge of or interest in learning about credit
  • Drive to help readers make sense of complicated financial products and concepts
  • Experience writing and editing
  • Commitment to fair and inclusive storytelling 
  • Commitment to listening to and learning from the freelance writers and Insider colleagues you work with

Salary - $60-65,000

Compensation for the role will depend on a number of factors, including a candidate’s qualifications, skills, competencies and experience and may fall outside of the range shown.

Insider offers a competitive total rewards package, which includes a 401k match, healthcare coverage and a broad range of other benefits.
