Fintech Writer – San Francisco, CA

Mercury is building a bank for startups. We launched about a year ago and have grown quite a bit through word of mouth. Thankfully, our customers seem to like what we’ve built so far:

Though our customers tweet about us, we haven’t ourselves written a whole lot about Mercury. That’s why we’re looking for a sharp writer to join our marketing team and help tell our story with authentic and precise words. You’ll work on blog posts, emails, op-eds, landing pages, tea menus, and a lot more to express who we are as a company, teach our users how to succeed, and establish our brand as the bank for startups.

Here are some things you’ll do on the job:

  • Think actively about our content strategy and create quality, creative content for all of our audiences
  • Write blog posts that teach users about our product, design philosophy, culture, and more
  • Become an expert on how successful tech startups and ecommerce companies are run, and then share your knowledge through writing
  • Write catchy copy that compels companies to use Mercury
  • Work on our brand voice and use it consistently across all channels, including social media, one-pagers, ads, decks, tea boxes, our website, and more
  • Write emails to welcome new users and keep them in the know about our products and events
  • Help us rank highly on search results and drive discovery of our content
  • Develop meaningful metrics to track the success and reach of our content

We’re looking for someone that has most of the following skills or qualities, but feel free to apply even if you don’t fit this mold but think you could do a great job. You should:

  • Write with precision, clarity, and authenticity
  • Be able to talk about tech companies, banking, software engineering, and business, while still sounding like a normal human
  • Take pleasure in the nuance of language and have strong opinions on diction
  • Know how to pull a narrative out of every piece of our company, from how we built a date picker to the local restaurants we frequent for lunch
  • Have some experience writing a pretty wide range of things—blog posts, copy, and newsletters are obviously directly applicable, but we’d love if you also sometimes write other things, like magazine articles, fiction, poetry (can be bad), or comic books
  • Understand how to pare an idea down to its simplest form and then express it in as few words as possible
  • Get our existing brand and have a natural feel for what’s on brand
  • Care for aesthetics
  • Think of yourself as being possessed of a certain wild creative flair
  • Use Oxford commas
  • Have a sense of humor
  • Deeply empathize with our customers and be able to think how they think
