ABOUT US
Simply Wall St transforms the way everyday people around the world invest, through empowering them to understand complicated financial data and make better, non-emotional financial decisions. The average retail investor massively underperforms the market, but they really don’t have to. We have over 2.3 m users and cover over 100,000 stocks in 91 countries.  
 
WHY JOIN?
This is an opportunity to work at a well-funded, profitable, fintech startup. We are solving a very interesting problem in a very underserved space. Investment research is undergoing a huge shift, and we are at the forefront of the technology changing how people monitor, research, and understand their investments and the market.


We provide high-quality, well-written stock analysis, especially on stocks and markets where there is often sparse or no coverage, to millions of retail investors every month. This is all supported by algorithmic and natural language generation, presented in a simple and visual way. Some of the world's biggest finance media brands are already using our content.
