Job description

What you will be doing as our Personal Finance Writer & Editor

  • Write high-quality stories about various personal finance topics (international money transfers, currency exchange, digital banking etc…) with a strong consumer-first orientation
  • Work on Monito’s editorial calendar from ideas to publication in collaboration with our SEO team, identifying topics and producing content pieces that Monito’s users will find, enjoy reading, and share.
  • Monito’s ambitions are global, so is our audience. You will write briefs and coordinate freelance writers and translators to produce content in more than 8 languages.
  • Words are powerful and you know it. You master the art of creative writing and you will be in charge of developing Monito’s voice. Including defining a tone, Monito’s key messages, and slogans.
  • Contribute ideas that strengthen Monito’s approach to service reviews and comparisons

What we have to offer:

  • Your writings will be read by millions and have the chance to directly impact their financial well-being. Our users have saved $8m in excessive money transfer fees in the past 12 months!
  • Take a ride aboard one of Switzerland’s hottest and most rapidly growing web startups with global ambitions
  • Collaborate with super talented and motivated people in a relaxed but hard-working atmosphere
  • We have an empathetic, kind and compassionate culture and attach great importance to the wellbeing of each and every team member
  • Enjoy flexible working conditions that match your own rhythm (we’re also a remote-friendly company if you like to work from home from time to time)
  • Annual salary range of 60,000 CHF - 80,000 and 25 days of holidays

Preferred experience

  • Experience creating and editing engaging and lively digital content with the ability to tailor your style, tone and message to a specific audience.

  • An analytical mindset: you care about measuring content performance and letting data guide what content to publish next, and are able to work with numbers to support your stories.
  • You are able to translate complex financial information — like currency exchange rate margins, credit card APR, Dynamic Currency Conversion — into a conversational copy that engages our audience.
  • You are not afraid to investigate PayPal’s user agreement or a PDF containing a bank’s fee schedule.
  • A start-up is a fast-paced and dynamic environment, we are looking for someone with a proactive attitude, self-responsible, with a willingness to learn and adapt.

Must-haves:

  • Exceptional English writing and editing skills.
  • Experience writing about personal finance topics
  • If you do not have Swiss citizenship or work permit, you need to have the citizenship of a European (EU-28) country
