Do you have a black belt in salary negotiation? Are you in possession of more airline miles than everyone you know combined? Would your opinions on student loan payoff plans be considered “fascinating dinner party conversation”? Could you retire next year but would prefer instead to work in a very cool job explaining the finer points of personal finance to an audience of millions?

Then we want to hear from you.

Lifehacker has an immediate opening for a staff writer specializing in personal finance. This is full-time position with competitive salary and good benefits, working out of Gizmodo Media’s New York City mothership or remotely. You’ll pitch and write stories, star in videos, go on adventures, and bring our audience of tens of millions best-in-class service journalism.

We’re looking for someone with a minimum of two years writing about personal finance for a consumer-focused outlet.

Sound good? Apply!
