We Don't Cover the News, We Uncover the Truth

Email Marketing Manager (Volunteer)

*Note: The following is an opportunity for flexible, part-time, volunteer work. Please DO NOT APPLY if you are only looking for paid employment. All positions are remote/work-from-home.

Are you experienced in email marketing? Are you passionate about making a difference? Would you find it exciting to work with smart and talented individuals committed to producing great journalism that is in the public’s interest? Can you commit 10 hours a week to our mission, working remotely on your own schedule with our far-flung, diverse team?

WhoWhatWhy is seeking an experienced Email Marketing Manager to join our Digital Marketing team. As an email marketing manager , you will be responsible for planning and developing our overall email marketing strategy. You will be responsible for ensuring alignment with our email campaign framework and overseeing the campaign process while working with multiple, internal teams.

This is an opportunity to build and advance our email communication strategy while working with smart and talented individuals who are committed to producing great journalism.

WhoWhatWhy.org is a nonpartisan, agenda-free, news organization. We are not left wing, not right wing, and not consensus-seeking; we report the truth, whatever it is. We approach each story with an open mind, boundless curiosity, and a willingness to dig deep beneath the surface - and we do not back away in the face of pressure from powerful institutions or groupthink.

We are a nonprofit. We are not funded by a zillionaire. We do not accept corporate ads. As such, we seek skilled volunteers to fill out our growing organizational infrastructure.

We value all experience levels. We have among us young students, vibrant retirees, and everything in between, from all walks of life.
