About The Fool

Our History

The Motley Fool was founded in 1993 by brothers David and Tom Gardner. Our name derives from Shakespeare's play "As You Like It," where only the court jester - the "Fool" - could tell the King the truth without getting his head lopped off.

If you haven’t yet noticed, we lovingly call our employees Fools - with a capital “F.” Our global band of Fools helps millions of people attain financial freedom through our website, podcasts, books, radio show, mutual funds, and premium investing services. We're dedicated to educating, amusing, and enriching individuals in search of the truth.

Life at The Fool

What We Do

Without teamwork, The Fool can’t sustain its mission of helping the world invest better. As a project-based organization, we work together on anything from short-term to long-term initiatives. Instead of focusing on building an organizational hierarchy, we encourage employees to collaborate across the business. We love to watch new friendships grow outside of traditional departments, plus creating a community in our workplace helps us work harder – and have some fun, too.

Perks and Benefits


Working at the Fool will be the best job you’ll ever have. With flexible work schedules, company-wide bonuses, amazing benefits, and awesome team members, we provide one of the best “professional” environments you’ll find anywhere. Business is thriving, growing, and evolving, so you’ll meet new challenges every day. If you want to spend your career making the world a better place by contributing to an investment revolution, The Motley Fool may be the place for you.

What It Means to be a Fool

It Means A Lot.

We believe that people should have the freedom to follow their passions and love what they do every day. Our tech-based business is rapidly advancing, so it’s important that employees evolve just as progressively in their roles. Successful Fools must adapt quickly, welcome change with open arms, and always be willing to jump in on mission-driven projects. We become better Fools when we take different approaches and innovate beyond the norm.

Fools love each other, our company, and our customers. If you’re looking to educate, amuse, and enrich the world, come join us in our journey!
