Who We Are

Ellevest is a fast-growing, venture-backed financial services start-up built by women, for women. Our mission is to get more money in the hands of women, no matter where they’re starting or how far they’ve come. We started by building the only gender-aware online investing platform that takes totally un-ignorable realities (like pay gaps, different salary curves, and women’s longer lifespans) into account. Then we added banking, learning, and money and career coaching services for Ellevest members, plus a full-service private wealth management service that helps high net worth people, families, and institutions align their financial power with their values.

Ellevest was co-founded by Wall Street veteran Sallie Krawcheck after she realized that the financial services industry was built by men, for men, systemically leaving women behind. During her Wall Street days, she served as CEO of Smith Barney, CEO of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, and CFO of Citi. Ellevest has raised over $145MM from investors including Rethink Impact, Pivotal Ventures, Valerie Jarrett, Salesforce Ventures, PayPal Ventures, MasterCard, Khosla Ventures, Morningstar, and Venus Williams. 

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Ellevest is an equal opportunity employer and we value diversity at our company. Data shows that diverse teams are more innovative, make better decisions, and lead to greater employee engagement. When hiring, we look for culture add, not culture fit. That means hiring people who bring new perspectives and different experiences to our team. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

About the position

Ellevest is a financial services company on a mission to get more money into the hands of women. We’re seeking a talented Copywriter to help us craft our brand’s strategies into persuasive copy. You have a proven ability to execute projects from brief-in stage to completion, across a variety of marketing channels, with a deep understanding of how to write within a defined brand voice. You’ll help us communicate the importance that money has in women's lives with engaging copy that encourages positive action. You’ll be working as part of a close-knit creative team with the goal of elevating the Ellevest brand experience. This is a full-time opportunity on our remote team.

Day-to-day you will: 

  • Work in creative partnership with the Brand, Growth, and Coaching teams to generate copy so that it’s best in class: compelling and deeply rewarding
  • Think strategically about how each message communicates an idea, evokes an emotion, and encourages action
  • Write, amend, and revise copy across our marketing website, the Ellevest store, emails, social channels, brand campaigns, presentation decks, and more
  • Regularly audit messaging for freshness, consistency, and performance
  • Keeping up to date with popular culture, trends, and the competitive landscape
  • Collaborate closely with our designers and participate in team meetings

We’re looking for:

  • 3-5+ years of professional copywriting experience at a start-up, agency, or in-house creative team
  • Experience in 360 brand marketing campaigns with the ability to move quickly from strategy to concept to execution
  • Hands-on writing experience in financial services is a huge plus
  • A collaborative mindset and proficiency with the creative iterative process
  • Demonstrated skill turning complex ideas into persuasive, informative copy that drives substantial growth and conversion
  • Proficiency adapting brand voice across various platforms, uses, and audiences
  • Openness to receiving feedback and having your opinions challenged
  • Exceptional grammar, copy editing, proofreading, and verbal communication skills
  • Self-startership in prioritizing projects, communicating progress, and delivering on time
  • Passion for our mission

Ellevest was founded in New York City, but today, our fully remote team is spread across the whole United States. As a member of the team, you can expect to do work that directly impacts our mission and the lives of real women every day.

We’re also dedicated to building a work environment where everyone on our team can grow and thrive, with flexible working hours and time off; remote work policies designed for transparency and effective cross-team collaboration; ongoing team building and professional development; and more.
