Development Production Manager

*Note: the following is an opportunity for volunteer, part-time, flexible work–with the possibility for compensation as we grow. Please DO NOT APPLY if you are only looking for paid employment.*

Are you at a point in your life where doing something challenging, meaningful and fun is more of an urgent concern for you than compensation? Are you ready to work with smart and talented individuals committed to producing great content in the public interest? Do you have extensive experience running organizations? Join our grand experiment in creating high-quality, insightful news.

The Position

Are you a detail-oriented, results-obsessed development expert? The nonprofit news organization WhoWhatWhy is looking for a Development Production Manager to ensure every detail of the development plan is carried out, supervise team members, and organize efforts for effective and efficient fundraising campaigns. You will be responsible for planning and overseeing production in order to maintain relationships with current donors, identify prospective opportunities, and help WhoWhatWhy continue to grow as an organization.

If you can commit a minimum of 10 or more hours a week, working remotely on your own schedule with our far-flung, diverse team, we’d like to hear from you.

Expectations

You will work remotely and on your own schedule, though we require a minimum commitment of 10 hours a week.  Because our staff is spread throughout the world, we communicate mostly through email. All staff are required to respond to emails on a daily basis.  If you possess a high level of self-motivation, work well independently, strive for excellence, and can commit quality time per week on a regular basis to help achieve team goals, please apply.

To Apply

Please send us a resume and carefully reasoned, customized cover letter that shows that you have studied and thought about what we do at WhoWhatWhy. Our mission must resonate deeply with you. We will not review applications that appear to be mass submissions.
