Want to work at the forefront of a fast-growing and award winning fintech company? With an incredible team and partners looking for innovative results, we’ve doubled in size our first year and doubled the asset classes we serve in our second. As a cloud-based company, we transitioned seamlessly into a socially-distanced workforce in recent months, and with a pace that hasn’t slowed, we’re still hiring and are currently on the lookout for smart and collaborative talent to join our remotely connected team.

Job Description

Strong candidates must be bright, energetic, highly disciplined, flexible to the growing needs of a startup, and excited to work in a fast-paced, achievement-oriented, entrepreneurial environment.

  • Build and maintain effective editorial schedules and build on process to track cross-team content production
  • Maintain schedules and budgets efficiently to ensure on-time completion of all jobs within budget constraints
  • Multi-task across simultaneous projects and deadlines, collaborating with appropriate team members
  • Facilitate brainstorms - towing the line between creative expression and brand realities
  • Demonstrate creative thought leadership, keeping ahead of trends and providing proactive inspiration and recommendations that give SIMON a competitive edge in a rapidly evolving FinTech industry

Minimum Qualifications

  • 3-5+ years of editorial and digital experience at an agency, studio, or in-house
  • Bachelor’s degree in advertising, journalism, communications, strategic marketing, or related field
  • Digitally savvy and experienced: familiar with popular and emerging social platforms and channels, strong awareness of trends in culture, finance, technology, and communications, and a demonstrated comfort level working with data, metrics, and emerging technologies
  • Superior conceptual, verbal, and written storytelling skills; an expressive range in voice and tone
  • Familiarity with AP style/editorial best practices and excellent grammar and proofreading skills
  • Excellent attention to detail, project management, and time-management skills
  • Individual contributor with ability to cultivate strong relationships with colleagues and key stakeholders in person and via email, slack, and other forms of communications
  • Honest, high level of work ethic and integrity, assertive, and possesses a strong desire to succeed
  • Portfolio showing strong strategic and conceptual campaign thinking applied across a range of deliverables
  • MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint skills
