Careers - Associate Editor

About Us

Crowdability is the world’s first and largest online research firm focused on start-up investing.

Thanks to a new set of laws called the JOBS Act, for the first time in 83 years, ordinary individuals can now invest in private start-ups.

This is an exciting development—but if investors don’t know what they’re doing, they could lose their shirts.

Crowdability’s mission is to help inform, protect and guide these investors.

Backed by top venture capitalists, Crowdability has quickly become a leader in this emerging sector, serving more than 100,000 free and paid subscribers.

About The Job

Crowdability is always looking for talented, driven people to help us fulfill our mission.

We’re currently seeking a full-time Associate Editor to help us grow the quantity and quality of our content.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a team dedicated to defining the future of investing.

Your role is to create new content — from daily articles about new technology trends and start-ups, to deep research reports on emerging sectors and specific investment opportunities.

This content will be published to our website and sent to our 100,000+ email subscribers.

Reporting to one of the company’s founders, the Associate Editor will be based in New York City. (For the right candidate, there might be flexibility with respect to geography.)

We offer a competitive market salary, benefits, bonus/incentive compensation and the ability to earn equity.

We’ll also aim to help you develop your skills and enable you to have an interesting and challenging career.

Your Key Responsibilities

  • Create and edit articles for our daily newsletter.
  • Edit data-driven research reports that analyze the merits of various start-ups.
  • Research and write detailed reports (from 3 to 30 pages) spanning topics relevant to technology, start-ups and sometimes, the financial markets.
  • Bring intellectual curiosity and creativity to all your deliverables.
  • Stay current on the latest technology and start-up news, and keep the team and our subscribers up-to-date on what you discover.

Required Experience and Skills

  • At least 2 years of writing and editing experience is a must.
  • Your experience can be from journalism, market research, equity research, investment banking or consulting.
  • Must be passionate (and ideally, knowledgeable) about technology and related disciplines such as start-ups, venture capital and M&A.
  • To be clear, while experience with financial services and financial markets is preferred, is it not required.
  • Ability to multi-task and be detail-oriented while keeping an eye on the big picture.
  • BA/BS required; relevant graduate degrees a plus.

We offer a flexible work schedule, flexible holiday policy, and most of all, the ability to learn alongside one of the smartest start-up teams on the planet.

We’re based in New York City, in a big, fun office with great light and snacks.
