Earlier this year AltFi launched its first US newsletter called The Finsight, a weekly breakdown of the ins and outs of America's burgeoning fintech sector (see the latest edition here).

Now we're looking for a new freelance journalist or writer with an advanced understanding of the US financial technology landscape who can join us to help independently write this 800-1,200 word newsletter.

They should be well versed in companies like Stripe, Square, Plaid, Robinhood and Brex, aware of broad financial industry trends, like how open banking is challenging the card payment networks, and able to write with humour and analytical thinking.

Successful applicants will be able to demonstrate strong experience in newsletter writing, with their own ideas to bring to the table for the mini-features, interviews and leader article topics which will form the base of the newsletter.

AltFi runs an entrepreneurial newsroom in the heart of London, but this role would be based remotely in the US.

For the right candidate, our US Newsletter Writer could become a full-time role.

Journalism training or media law training is a plus, but not essential.

We’re looking to pay between $250-$350 per newsletter for the right candidate.

Job Spec

  • Write content for our fortnightly US newsletter (c.800-1,200 words per newsletter) ✍️
  • Use humour, analytical writing and specific insights to unpack the US fintech landscape 🏦
  • Come up with ideas for the mini-features, interviews and leader article themes that will form the newsletter 🤔
  • Work remotely and independently, with the support of our UK editorial team 💪
  • Possibly working alongside other freelance Newsletter Writers 🕵️

Our interview process for shortlisted candidates will involve a video interview and a writing test.

To apply please email jobs@altfi.com explaining why you’re applying and why you'd be a good fit for this role. Please attach a CV and also include two examples of articles/newsletters you've written.
