About

Company Overview

WhoWhatWhy invites gregarious, values-driven individuals to join our growing pro-bono family, share our story and persuade others to invest in our public-spirited vision of a better media. We’re a radically different news outfit - for a public equally tired of irresponsible "fake news" and of the establishment media’s pack mentality and limited curiosity.

At WhoWhatWhy, we hunt for those narratives that somehow never get told - even by the "hot news brands" that at first blush seem so edgy and bold. We dig deeper, identifying underlying causes of political crises and structural problems that, if addressed, could result in a better world for all.

As a nonprofit that accepts no advertising, WhoWhatWhy operates on a hybrid model comprising a core group of part- and full-time staffers and a larger contingent of talented, enthusiastic volunteers. Most of our seasoned team members started off as volunteers.

To apply, send us your resume and a detailed cover letter that shows you have studied our brand and explains why you are qualified for this position using the link below.
