The Motley Fool’s mission is “To make the world smarter, happier, and richer.” For more than 25 years, that has meant providing impartial and informed investment recommendations with a healthy dose of personal finance guidance on the side. Ever the insatiable Fools that we are, our coverage continues to expand as we seek to empower everyone with the knowledge, tools, and confidence to attain financial freedom.

Does our name sound familiar? Probably. We’ve been spreading the word to millions of readers each month by publishing hundreds of articles each week at our award-winning site. You know us as your one-stop shop for analyzing the latest earnings reports and finding your portfolio’s next home run stock.

But you may not know that The Motley Fool has launched several new brands to deliver that same high caliber, credible content in areas where misinformation runs rampant and the Fool voice can make a difference. In addition to helping you become an all-star stock market investor, we can also help you:

  • Identify the top providers to find the right credit card, consolidate your student loan debt and open your first brokerage account (The Ascent and MyWalletHero)
  • Cut through the jargon and guide your first foray into commercial real estate investments (Millionacres)
  • Identify the software tools and solutions that will effectively grow your small to medium sized business (The Blueprint)
  • Reach all of your personal finance goals like paying down debt, making extra money on the side, creating a rock-solid budget, travel hacking your way around the world, and retiring early (Soapbox)
  • Find the best pho restaurant within a 50 mile radius (we can dream, right?)
  • These five new Motley Fool brands take high quality, engaging content just as seriously as their counterpart, so each team is seeking a qualified SEO Content Specialist to uphold that high bar and introduce their respective sites to millions of new readers. As your brand develops, you will be expected to grow with it and be a driving force in that change. You’ll be managing and curating our content, while optimizing for organic search, on-site engagement, and partner distribution. Not only will you be expected to learn which topics are most relevant for our target audience, but you will then use that knowledge to publish to the highest value opportunities for our business and constantly monitor performance to inform our overall strategy. The Motley Fool is a well-established brand, and you are a key player in building these new brands into something equally as significant. Do you see the opportunity lying in front of us? Are you ready to get started?
