Do you love staying up to date on financial news? Do you have a knack for sourcing media contacts and drafting tailored pitches? Do you want to work at a company that helps people understand financial concepts and grow their wealth? Then we want to hear from you!
We are looking for an enthusiastic, media savvy, self-starter with experience placing stories and building reporter relationships. You will report directly to Elly Stolnitz, Director of Consumer Communications, and work closely with Kate Wauck, Wealthfront’s Chief Communications Officer. You will also collaborate with our editorial, social media, and product marketing teams.
About the Communications team
The Communications team drives buzz and deepens brand affinity via owned and earned channels. We keep Wealthfront top of mind among an audience that ranges from clients to the press. We’re responsible for driving positive conversation and buzz about Wealthfront via media relations, social media, and editorial content.
We’re a remote-friendly team and open to candidates across the US.

This role will involve:

  • Building relationships with personal finance and investing reporters and proactively communicating the Wealthfront story.
  • Developing creative and timely pitches to secure coverage highlighting Wealthfront’s product suite.
  • Working cross functionally with product marketing teams to support product announcements throughout the year.

  • Working closely with the data science and consumer insights teams to build and place stories that highlight Wealthfront’s data and show interesting trends among our clients.
  • Monitoring the media landscape and recommending new media opportunities.

Responsibilities

  • Build your own network of personal finance and investing reporters, podcast hosts, and newsletter writers, and write creative pitches to keep them engaged with Wealthfront.
  • Develop interesting story angles and secure articles that show trends among our clients and showcase our data.
  • Develop pitches, press releases, briefings, media lists, and other materials to support product and PR launches.
  • Keep the team up to speed on industry related news and flag opportunities to insert Wealthfront into the conversation.
  • Field inbound media requests and vet accordingly.

Benefits include medical, vision, dental, 401K plan, generous time off, parental leave, wellness reimbursements, professional development, employee investing discount, and more!
About Wealthfront
Wealthfront started with the ambition to transform the investment advisory business, with the goal to unlock access to high quality investment advice for millions who were underserved by the traditional institutions. We built one of the first automated investment products that allows you to invest in a personalized portfolio of thousands of companies in seconds for a remarkably low fee. We then expanded. We now work with partner banks to offer exceptional banking features through a Wealthfront Brokerage Cash Account, which makes it remarkably easy for people to automate their finances end-to-end and eliminated the hassle of money management, all of which resulted in attracting more than $50 billion of our client’s hard earned money, pioneering the robo-advisor category and transforming the broader industry. And yet, we have a long way to go to achieve our mission to build a financial system that favors people, not institutions.
Wealthfront’s vision is to make it delightfully easy to build long-term wealth on your own terms. This vision is more relevant than ever because millions more people are getting into the market early and investing their hard earned savings in a handful of stocks. While this is a great way to start, it is inconsistent with building long-term wealth. We want to empower young investors to expand their horizon, and easily explore and execute on a wider range of investing strategies, make informed investment decisions that are consistent with their values and beliefs while also making it effortless to grow and compound their savings exponentially in a way that’s transformational to their lives and their long-term future.
