StockStory is looking for a founding equity analyst to join our team and help us build a new generation of stock investment advice, democratizing access to analytical methods, data and technology that was until now only reserved for top hedge funds.
Retail investing is going through a massive boom and retail focused investment research is a big market, but technologically about 20 years behind the rest of the industry. It is still mainly email newsletters and Wordpress sites. It is manual, slow, expensive and often poor quality.
Do you feel passionate about changing that? Read on!
At StockStory we algorithmically generate articles that provide high quality, fact-based, data-driven investment advice at scale. Our purpose is to make profitable long-term investing easier for as many individual investors as possible and we do it by giving them exactly the answers they need, not some figure-it-out-yourself research tools.
We have a distribution partnership with Apple and our analysis is now by default present in every iPhone in the US through the native Stocks app, alongside companies like Reuters, CNBC or The Street. The response has been overwhelmingly great.
You can get a small taste of what is coming by following our earnings coverage of the tech sector. We built a proprietary AI technology to provide investors with the fastest analysis of earnings results on the market. You will know what decision to make faster than almost any other investor, including professional fund managers.
To see few early examples check out our recent articles or our Apple News channel.
But that is just a beginning.
We have a lot of really interesting problems to solve and need somebody who is as excited about them as we are. Is that you? Come and join us.

About the role:
This is an opportunity to join an early stage, VC funded startup as the first analyst hire and have a massive impact on the product and the company itself. We are currently still only a small team of three, you will have a very meaningful equity in the company and there is an opportunity for you to become a late co-founder in the company.
We prefer excited fast learners with less experience over decades of experience and no drive. You will be working with a team that has previously built successful AI products in the finance and cybersecurity space.

This role will be a great fit for you if:
  • You have a passion for long-term, growth-oriented investing
  • You enjoy working with data, finding analytical insights in them and can at least build a quantitative analysis model in a spreadsheet
  • You have a strong knowledge of financial statements, and understand different valuation techniques
  • You are deeply interested in the US tech sector, we are currently focusing on covering public software companies (you will get to learn about a lot of them)
  • You love telling captivating stories, you enjoy writing for the general investing public and do it well
  • You have the ability to communicate complex ideas in an easy to understand way and synthesize financial and business aspects of a company

What we would like to see from you:
  • A private or public investing track record that proves you are a good investor
  • 2+ years of experience in equity research (can be self-published), investment banking, VC or a related field
  • At least basic ability to work with data (spreadsheet modeling or SQL) and write very simple code (Python, R, JS or any other programming language)
  • A university degree in Economics, Finance, MBA or CFA a plus, but not necessary

Location:
Ideally US Eastern timezone (New York) or Western/Central European time zones. Due to Covid we are currently fully remote with team members based in Sydney, Australia and Prague, Czech Republic.

How to apply:
Send us a 500 word research pitch for a stock that you believe we should invest in today, CV and a cover letter to adam (at) stockstory.org
I will personally review every application and answer to everybody.
Adam,
CEO & Founder

View company profile

We are a financial technology startup with the purpose of making profitable stock investing easier for individual investors. We do it by giving you the answers you need, not some figure-it-out-yourself tools.

We started StockStory because we love the stock market but we saw that stock investing these days is often rigged in favour of the large institutions. Funds and banks are spending massive amounts of resources to get any information advantage, employing thousands of engineers and data scientists in order to find insights in data.

We are on a mission to democratize access to analytical methods, data and technology that was until now only reserved for top-tier hedge funds. We leverage them to produce insights that are easy to use and understand for everybody.
