Freelance Investing Writer/Analyst - Canada

Contract/Freelance Freelance/Contract, United States


The Motley Fool Canada is looking for a skilled freelance writer to contribute their writing talent and subject matter expertise to our community of Foolish investors. We are hoping for around 20 articles per month at this point. 

Though this is a 100% remote contract opportunity with flexible hours, candidates must reside in Canada to be considered. 

Who are we?

We are The Motley Fool, a purpose-driven financial information and services firm with nearly 30 years of experience focused on making the world smarter, happier, and richer. But what does that even mean?! It means we’re helping Fools (always with a capital “F”) demystify the world of finance, beat the stock market, and achieve personal wealth and happiness through our products and services.

The Motley Fool is firmly committed to diversity, inclusion, and equity. We are a motley group of overachievers that have built a culture of trust founded on Foolishness, fun, and a commitment to making the world smarter, happier and richer.  However you identify or whatever winding road has led you to us, please don't hesitate to apply if the description above leaves you thinking, "Hey! I could do that!"

Though The Motley Fool is US-based, we have a thriving Global unit that serves countries around the world from nearby Canada, to far-flung Australia. This contractor would be supporting our team in Canada. And though the role is 100% remote, the contractor must be local to Canada. 

About This Role: 

The Motley Fool Canada freelance team has two goals:

  1. To share your sharp analysis and compelling writing with thousands of individual investors.
  2. To help you develop your analysis and writing to become a regular contributor.

Our Freelancers are encouraged to build a partnership with our editors, analysts, and fellow authors and to hone their expertise in financial analysis, storytelling, and the Foolish writing style that has served as the foundation of our company's success. 

We offer a pay structure that is clear, transparent, and, we hope, generous. If you write an article that is thoughtful, well-written, and makes specific and relevant mention of publicly traded companies and their tickers, we’ll publish it and pay you $75 per article.

As many of our successful freelancers can attest, that might just be a starting point for your relationship with the Fool. There will likely be additional incentives for top performing writers. And we keep an eye on the best writers and analysts -- those who truly work with us as partners. And that can lead to even bigger things.

Required Experience: 

  • Demonstrated understanding of the Canadian stock market
  • Strong writing skills and the ability to match our Foolish brand voice. 
  • Passion for investing education
  • Firm grasp of Foolish investing principles
  • Proficiency in English
  • Applicants must reside in Canada.
