Join Barefoot in 2015

Want to do Work That Matters?

The Barefoot Investor is about people. It’s about helping people tread their own path and take the next step to financial freedom.

We’re looking for like-minded, high-quality individuals for the following roles:

Investment Editor

We are one of Australia’s leading financial authorities, and the backbone of our operation is our fast growing financial newsletter business. That’s where you come in: we’re looking for a talented Investment Editor to lead our team.

You don’t need to be a financial analyst – you won’t be making any recommendations – but you do need to have a thorough understanding of financial markets, and investment fundamentals.

You must also have formidable editorial skills, and both the passion and the ability to communicate investment ideas in a simple, yet compelling way.

You’ll be working alongside a small but brilliant team who love coming to work each day. More than that, you’ll be editing a publication that has the most passionate readership of any publication in the country.

We truly believe that great jobs, like this one, come along once in a lifetime. You’ll be proud of the work you do here, and you’ll directly help thousands of Aussies to tread their own path …

Here’s Three Non-Negotiables (we’re deadly serious…)

  • You must have high attention to detail.
  • You must have a passion for financial markets and investing.
  • You must be able to write clearly and concisely, and not be boring.

To throw your hat into the ring for this role, please email jobs@barefootinvestor.com with:

  • Your resume
  • An example of your best writing

Please be sure to include the position title in your email subject line.

Digital Marketer

The Barefoot Investor produces award winning self-help financial content across radio, podcasts, broadcast television, newspapers, blogs, social media, and videos. We also have a thriving paid investment newsletter subscription business.

Here’s the rub…

We’re looking for a gun digital marketer who can optimize digital subscription sales from our 114,000-strong community, and generate new leads via paid traffic.

About you:

You’re highly detail-oriented, analytical, naturally curious, and obsessed with conversion rate optimization. In addition you have:

  • A fanatical preoccupation with data analytics and split testing results.
  • Experience in implementing paid campaigns.
  • A strong work ethic.

You’ll be responsible for:

  • Continually optimising our online marketing strategy to meet our ROI goals. (We currently use Google Analytics, LeadPages, Unbounce, and Infusionsoft).
  • Overseeing our organic traffic (SEO, and podcast promotion).
  • Analysing our customer feedback data for insights on product creation and revenue generation.

One more thing:

You’ll run your own show: we don’t micromanage. If you’re not a leader, and you’re not passionate about being free to run your own area, you won’t fit in here.

To apply:

Along with your resume, please write a cover letter telling us about your most successful campaign in terms of ROI – and how you achieved it.

Send these to jobs@barefootinvestor.com and be sure to include the position title in your email subject line.
