Digital Editor - Full-Time, Remote


Student Loan Hero combines financial education with easy-to-use tools to help the millions of Americans living with student loan debt to manage their student loans smarter.

Founded in 2012, Student Loan Hero is helping 100,000+ borrowers manage and eliminate over $2 billion dollars in student loan debt. We're on a mission to help 44 million Americans manage their student loans smarter.

For both current and former students who want to manage their loans in line within their own budget, Student Loan Hero offers free loan calculators, unbiased personalized advice, and repayment plans, all with a user-friendly interface and dashboard.

We'd sum up the mission of the Digital Editor this way: take others’ writing and make it awesome.

Our team of writers and content producers create across a variety of platforms—blogs, email marketing, and ebooks, to name a few. We need your help to make their writing shine.

The role of the Digital Editor is crucial to Student Loan Hero’s mission to provide the best educational resources possible for student loan borrowers. Providing value by way of engaging financial content is an essential part of this mission.

We help our readers and users answer important questions about their student loans and their finances in general. This process includes making concepts from the often-confusing world of student loans and personal finance easy to understand so that our readers can take action.

The Digital Editor should also be comfortable writing content, especially related to student loans and topics of personal finance. This aspect of the position includes regularly contributing to the Student Loan Hero blog, writing guest blog posts for other websites, and helping to produce other marketing-related content, such as guides and ebooks.

In addition to hundreds of posts published on the Student Loan Hero blog, we’ve contributed to and been featured in The New York Times, Business Insider, The Huffington Post, Forbes, and Entrepreneur, to name just a few publications.

The ideal candidate for this position should have an entrepreneurial mindset and be ready to take on and initiate new projects as he or she sees the need arise.

Student Loan Hero is a fully remote team. We have team members all over the world in cities including NYC, Austin, Portland, and Santiago.

Since we’re literally all over the map, communication using Slack, Gmail, Basecamp, Google Hangouts, and other tools is key for us. Don't worry—you won't be alone. We communicate regularly (and often with GIPHYs) throughout the day.

Each team member uses highly specialized skills while working on a variety of projects. We enjoy giving our team members autonomy to do the work that interests them. We’re focused on the output of each team member, not putting in long hours.

We’re always open to new ways to create better content and make Student Loan Hero better for student loan borrowers, and we want to hear new ideas from you. A large part of our culture and values is transparency. We believe that team members should collaborate and communicate, not compete or engage in office politics.

At the same time, we like to make work as much fun as possible. We want everyone on our team to grow both personally and professionally, which is why we offer pretty damn awesome benefits and perks like unlimited vacation time and student loan repayment assistance.

Above all, we’re each proud to work on solving meaningful problems and to impact lives every day. Whether it’s authoring a blog post read by thousands of borrowers or answering a one-on-one customer support question, we value that working for Student Loan Hero makes a positive impact.
