Financial Writer

Do you straddle the world between eloquent prose and algorithmic trading? Can you speak with a portfolio manager in his lingo and then translate it into plain-English marketing copy? If so, consider a senior position at Thinkso.

We are seeking a senior writer who has both institutional financial services expertise and creative agency experience. We will supply a very collaborative and supportive environment; you will deliver premium creative work to our financial services clients. 

To qualify, you must:

  • Have a deep knowledge of institutional financial services and sophisticated individual investors. (Topics could include algorithmic trading, market structure, market making, complex structured products, and more.)

  • Write in clear plain English, and know when to use industry jargon—and, most importantly, when not to.

  • Be able to develop or adopt unique brand voices.

  • Be a stickler for the details (grammar, spelling, consistency, etc.).

  • Love a variety of project types and have experience writing across media—print and digital, long form and short.

  • Want to break new ground in financial services marketing.

  • Be comfortable taking a project and running with it, but also enjoy collaborating with the team.

  • Be honest, sincere, and open.

  • Enjoy weekly happy hours and team lunches in our indoor meadow.

Salary and title commensurate with skills and experience. Interested candidates, please submit a cover letter, resume, and samples of your work to jobs@thinkso.com.
