Can you break down complex personal finance topics and help people make smart decisions about their money? Do you understand how to optimize content using SEO best practices? LendingTree is looking for a staff writer who can specialize in personal finance, with a focus on home loans, to join our in-house SEO editorial team.

As a staff writer, you will conduct SEO analysis, track article performance, create outlines, review financial products, write new articles and refresh existing content on a range of personal finance and debt topics, though your primary focus at the outset will be on home loans and other mortgage-related content. The articles and guides you create for LendingTree.com may span several in-house verticals (such as mortgage, personal loans/debt, credit cards, auto loans and more) in order to inform consumers about key financial products and decisions in a clear and digestible way.

Your ultimate mandate will be to create clear, concise content that reaches the first page of Google search results for the most-asked personal finance and consumer debt questions.


LendingTree is the nations largest online lending marketplace. That means we connect customers with multiple lenders, so they find the best deals on loans, credit cards, savings accounts and insurance. Our goal is to help people save money, and we believe the best way to do that is by giving them a way to shop for loans and compare lenders, so they make their best financial choices.

Our CEO Doug Lebda founded the company in 1996 after a frustrating house-hunting experience. In those days, we mostly helped people find good mortgage deals. Now, we help consumers find their best in personal loans, auto loans, business loans, student loans, credit cards, savings accounts, home equity loans and more.

What else you should know:

  • Were a publicly-traded company (TREE).
  • Weve welcomed several other companies into the LendingTree family to augment our efforts at helping borrowers make their most sensible financial choices.
  • Weve built the LendingTree app and My LendingTree dashboard to give consumers tools to manage and monitor their financial health.


Were a fast-paced company with an entrepreneurial bend. We work hard and test our products often. Were collaborative, ambitious, candid and high-energy. Our teammates are some of the brightest, most talented people youll ever work with. We care more about your smarts than we do about the kinds of clothes you wear (but please, do wear clothes to work!), and were pretty good about rewarding innovation, creativity and the knack for just getting stuff done (we even have an award for employees called the GSD, Get Stuff Done).

Come work with us!
