You're a strong writer who wants to keep improving and learning new skills.

That's what it takes to thrive at NerdWallet. We've been around since 2009, helping consumers make smart financial decisions. We cover consumer finance -- banking, credit cards, education, health care, insurance, investing, mortgages, personal loans, shopping, small business -- you name it.

We have a content team of 50+ and we're growing.

Our staff writers and editors have worked at outlets such as ABC, Bloomberg, CNN, Dow Jones, ESPN, the LA Times, MarketWatch, MSN, MSN Money, Reuters, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post. We also have staff writers who spent years as successful freelancers. What we have in common: We take initiative. We think strategically. We problem solve effectively. We're adaptable.

  • The ability to work well on your own, as well as in a team setting
  • The ability to juggle multiple projects
  • Strong work samples in hard news or complex topics. Our work involves understanding complex topics and explaining them conversationally. We will not consider applicants whose experience is concentrated in sports or features unless you've also covered hard news and provide such work samples. Please include links to your work samples along with your cover letter and resume.

Principles of Increase

Aja McClanahan, principal contributor and I’m an urban dweller living in the heart of the inner city and all that the phrase implies. Beyond that I am a mom, wife, business owner, and Jesus lover who happens to like where my family is at in life right now. We’ve managed to pay off debt completely, begin saving and wealth building in what is supposed to be a place where no one prospers and no one succeeds. We are beating the odds through faith, persistence and a little creativity. I’d like to continue sharing our story,  hoping it encourages and inspires people to envision and execute the impossible!

Reluctantlandlord

I am a real estate investor who own 7 houses and self-manages 10 all over the United States. My goal is to grow our empire into 10 houses in the next 12 months and to 15 in the next 30 months. We are on track to close on 2 more houses by the end of the year.

After realizing that there were very little resources for the average or reluctant landlord, my site www.reluctantlandlord.com was born. I started the website to teach others how to be successful in all aspects of real estate especially the self-management aspect and the ability to finance an empire. On reluctantlandlord I discuss landlording, self-managing, purchasing, taxes, mortgages, and most importantly, frugal living. It is the frugal living that is the source of our down payments and seed money.  

Over the years I have found that I truly love writing and talking business matters. It is the perfect combination of my MBA and Finance/Accounting background, mixed with my growing Real Estate business. 

I am looking for freelance business writing, podcasts and other positions. At this time I am simply looking for different opportunities to share my love of business to everyone no matter one's background or level of understanding. Nothing make me smile than more when I see the realization as business subjects go from Greek to plain English.
