Video Marketing Strategist

*Note: the following is an opportunity for volunteer, part time, flexible employment. Please DO NOT APPLY if you are only looking for paid work.*

Do you excel at creating marketing and social media strategy around video content? The nonprofit news organization WhoWhatWhy is looking for a volunteer video marketing strategist to help us reach a wider audience with our new pieces of investigative videojournalism. You will be responsible for helping envision how to place and market content through social media platforms and our website.

Who We Are

We are a remarkable news organization and community that is making a difference, setting a new standard, and innovating on every front. A nonprofit that accepts no advertising, WhoWhatWhy is staffed largely with skilled volunteers dedicated to elevating public awareness and fostering a more vigorous democracy.  


You will work remotely and on your own schedule, though we require a minimum commitment of 5-8 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.

To Apply

Please send us a resume and carefully reasoned, customized cover letter that outlines your experience and skillset, and shows that you have studied what we do at WhoWhatWhy. Our mission must resonate deeply with you. We will not review applications that appear to be mass submissions. You must confirm your understanding that this is a volunteer position.

In your cover letter, at the top, write "Mencken."
