As the reader, you’re likely already familiar with our company. Of course we have, but the People Team runs this site – our Culture Blog. Here we’ve posted tons of articles about workplace culture, collaboration, and innovation. As our company grows, hiring the best new Fools has become a top priority. We decided that prospective Fools deserved a site of their own, so a team formed to develop The Motley Fool’s Careers Site …and it’s now live!

We hope this resource will help applicants envision how Fools work individually, cross-departmentally, and as a company to achieve goals.The Culture Blog will stay updated, but one thing that’s moving is our job feed. Going forward, you’ll be able to find all our open positions on the Careers Site!

We’re currently hiring, so there’s no better time to learn what life at The Motley Fool has to offer. Take a look here, and please pass along to anyone that could be a potential Fool!

FoolHQ is Worthy of “Office Envy”

Are we the coolest office in DC? Well, Fools sure think so – but it doesn’t hurt that DC Inno just profiled our Alexandria headquarters as part of their Office Envy series! We take pride in maintaining a dynamic workplace that appeals to many different personalities. These featured photos also show that Fools love board games (we stock a collection on the 4th Floor!); working on the balcony in nice weather rules; couches are used for working (not sleeping!); and wellness really plays a huge part in Foolish productivity.


A big thanks to DC Inno for visiting the Fool. Take a minute to “Step In” and check out our space now!

The Fool Goes To SXSW (With Your Help!)


A premiere launching pad for new creative content, The South by Southwest Conference & Festivals plays host to a variety of media, music, and film features every March. SXSW also presents conference panel discussions as forums for learning and global networking opportunities.

This annual event unites industry leaders with innovative minds in Austin, TX – and we think it’s time to add some Foolishness into the mix! That’s right – we’ve applied through SXSW’s PanelPicker process for our very own Nate McMahon to speak on workplace culture in March 2016.

Nate’s presentation would “show the principles at play behind our award-winning culture including how to: 1) Focus on the analytics that matter, 2) Scale your employee coaching program effectively, and 3) Unleash your people to achieve their highest potential—all while keeping them engaged and fulfilled on the job.” Check out our proposal page, where you can vote in our favor!

More about the Voting Process

Thousands of people submit proposals for speaking at SXSW – it’s competitive, to say the least. Public voting (from readers like you!) accounts for 30% of the total score; 40% comes from Programming Committee voting; and 30% comes from SXSW Staff scoring.

How You Can Help

Our proposal, Unlock the Max Potential of Your Superstars, is up for voting RIGHT NOW! Signing up for an account is easy – we promise! We’d really appreciate your vote before Friday, September 4 (11:59 PM CT). It’s time for more people to know what our culture is all about!

Thanks in advance for your support – and Fool On!
