Can you break down complex personal finance topics and help people make smart decisions about their money? Do you understand how to optimize content using SEO best practices? LendingTree is looking for a staff writer who can specialize in personal finance and consumer debt to join our in-house SEO editorial team.
As a staff writer, you will conduct SEO analysis, track article performance, create outlines, review financial products, write new articles and refresh existing content on a wide range of personal finance and debt topics, such as consolidating debt, taking out a mortgage, building up savings or refinancing student loans. The articles and guides you create for LendingTree.com may span several in-house verticals (such as mortgage, personal loans/debt, credit cards, auto loans and more) in order to inform consumers about key financial products and decisions in a clear and digestible way.
Your ultimate mandate will be to create clear, concise content that reaches the first page of Google search results for the most-asked personal finance and consumer debt questions.
LendingTree is the nation’s largest online lending marketplace. That means we connect customers with multiple lenders so they find the best deals on loans, credit cards, savings accounts and insurance. Our goal is to help people save money, and we believe the best way to do that is by giving them a way to shop for loans and compare lenders so they make their best financial choices.
Our CEO Doug Lebda founded the company in 1996 after a frustrating house-hunting experience. In those days, we mostly helped people find good mortgage deals. Now, we help consumers find their best in personal loans, auto loans, business loans, student loans, credit cards, savings accounts, home equity loans and more.
