Starting Salary: $75,000
Reports to: Director of Consulting

We offer consulting and technology tools that allow our clients to fight misinformation, keep the public informed, and hold elected leaders accountable.

The News Revenue Hub seeks a dynamic professional to join our team of remote digital news experts. The Hub’s consulting team advises cutting edge newsrooms from across the industry on strategies to expand their audiences, develop products, and build sustainable membership programs. The project manager role is the heart of everything we do.

Working with the Director of Consulting and other project managers, the Project Manager (PM) provides strategic advice to newsroom leaders and executives, consulting advice, and executes projects to help our newsrooms meet their goals. The PM develops trust with newsroom partners and instinctively understands their goals, worries, and hopes, while tactfully addressing their weaknesses and triaging their needs. The PM also works with teammates across the company to take newsrooms’ complex problems, break them down into solvable pieces, and lead internal projects to resolve them. 

Candidates should bring knowledge from the journalism industry and applicable experience in the fields of audience development and/or membership (and ideally, some degree of both). Previous experience working with newsletter strategy, data, and analytics are particularly valuable for this role. Our hire can expect annual performance reviews with merit-based increases and opportunities for advancement in this role.

About You:

You might have been working in the journalism industry for years, or maybe you bring perspective from an adjacent field. You’re incredibly well-organized from Day 1. You’re passionate about public service journalism and have a spirit of collaboration. But you also have a demonstrable independent streak–you’re able to take a task outside of your comfort zone and run with it.  

Concerned that you don’t fit the stated criteria or even that you’re over-qualified? Don’t be. If you have an entrepreneurial spirit and consider yourself a problem solver and a good communicator, we encourage you to apply. Tell us how your experience and passion relate to what we are doing in 200 words or less, and include your resume when you apply.

Ideal Qualifications: 

  • Demonstrated experience working in nonprofit fundraising, audience development, and/or product development strategies.

  • Comfort with data and analytics, ideally in a newsroom environment. You can review a data set—website traffic, revenue, list growth—and not only understand it but see trends and opportunities within and translate those things to others. 
  • Demonstrable experience leading, developing and executing strategy in a professional environment.
  • Excellent interpersonal and problem-solving skills. Ability to adapt to new situations, solve problems on the fly, and communicate with those around you. Teamwork and resourcefulness required, and confidence to ask for advice when needed
  • Empathy, communication, respect, patience, and a willingness to help out, whether it’s the Hub, a member you serve, or someone else!

Your Day to Day Work Will Likely Include:
