Description

 

Why we’re a great company to work for?

  • We have a mission. Seeking Alpha is about more than helping people make money. People who invest are 24% happier, 19% less stressed, and report a 36% increase in their sense of well-being (source). By helping investors to succeed, we help them to send children to college, achieve life goals, afford healthcare, and provide themselves with a secure retirement.
  • We’re profitable and growing fast. We fuel our growth investments with our own capital, leading to greater stability for employees, and an inspiring growth-focused environment. All employees receive equity grants in-line with their cash compensation.
  • You’ll work with great people. We work in small, tight-knit groups of smart, engaged people who bring everything to the table every day.
  • We have fun. We love to get together at company events, which include Alphas who work from home. “Seeking Alpha doesn’t feed me well,” said no one ever.
  • You’ll impact the lives of many people. We have 15 million unique monthly visitors, and 500,000 unique users visit Seeking Alpha every business day.

 

What you need to excel

Further down you’ll find the specifics of the job. The following traits describe the characteristics we look for in all positions.

  1. Hard-working. Delivering great experiences requires time and painstaking dedication. There are no shortcuts. Be ready to crush it every day.
  2. Precise. It is easy to fudge things. We look for people who love being given concrete definitions of success and utilize their talents and work ethic to exceed them.
  3. Flexible. We ask questions more than we assert answers, and we are always open to criticism and changing our views in the face of evidence.
  4. Lean. We pride ourselves in getting stuff done efficiently. When we ask, “How can I solve this challenge,” the first answer is never, “Hire someone.”
  5. Team player. We look for people who are intellectually stimulating, bring a positive attitude to work, and are fun to be around.
