Jobs at CreditDonkey


CreditDonkey wants to help young adults save money and make savvy decisions. We're striving to make personal finance fun and so easy a donkey can understand.

Our content is:

  • accessible (clear and concise AKA "donkey proof")
  • engaging (with a unique style and fun branded visuals)
  • insightful (comprehensive and nuanced)

This approach has helped us develop a robust, growing audience (and, admittedly, some hurt feelings within the donkey community).

Now we're looking to experiment with new ways to deliver our message, including email, video, social media, podcast, and events.

If you're a creative, motivated and collaborative individual with STRONG writing skills, we want YOU.

Benefits

The hiring process isn't fun for anyone. So at CreditDonkey we've developed a revolutionary plan we call "Trying to Retain Great Employees." Here's what we offer:

  • Competitive Compensation
  • Medical Insurance
  • Dental Insurance
  • Vision Insurance
  • Paid Vacation and Time Off Package

Located in lovely Old Town Pasadena, near plenty of restaurants and minutes from the Metro Gold Line. Must be able to commute to our Pasadena office.
