Managing Strategist



United States · Remote
Posted on Saturday, September 9, 2023
At MissionWired, we help our partners create revolutionary fundraising strategies that advance their mission, change our country, and have a positive impact on the world.
MissionWired is the only wholly integrated direct marketing agency for nonprofits and Democratic organizations. We help our partners tell big, ambitious stories that invite their supporters into communities to raise mission-changing revenue. Our results are unrivaled, having converted more than $3.1 billion in donations to the world’s most trusted philanthropies and groundbreaking campaigns. We do it over email and SMS, in the mail, across social media, everywhere. We don’t think in terms of channels; we’re single-minded in pursuit of your success.
We’re innovative, progress-obsessed, do-gooders who care deeply about social change and continuing to push the limits on what we can accomplish together. We’ve brought strategies to life for nonprofit organizations working around the world, including Sandy Hook Promise, Human Rights Watch, The Humane Society of the U.S., Save the Children, and Friends of the Earth, as well as progressive political organizations, campaigns and candidates like President Biden’s re-election campaign and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC). Each cycle is an opportunity for us to support organizations across the country and elect Democrats to legislative bodies up and down the ballot.
We’re an equal-opportunity employer and take seriously our commitment to equality and equity. Our efforts to be inclusive and create opportunity don’t end when someone joins us – they begin.
We’ve set our sights on changing the world through our work and with our clients, and representation is at the foundation of what we do. We know that diversity of thought and background makes us stronger. That’s why we’re committed to building and maintaining a diverse community.
Every new team member broadens our perspective and allows us to think bigger. We’ll be at our best when people from underrepresented communities and people with a range of perspectives and lived experiences want to come, stay, and push the boundaries of what’s possible.
Overview: MissionWired is looking for a direct-response marketer with experience optimizing digital programs for nonprofit organizations and/or political campaigns to join us as a Managing Strategist.

There’s nowhere else you can make a life-changing impact on causes as urgent and varied as empowering communities the world over with top international aid organizations, promoting equity in education, and combating the scourge of gun violence.

  • Maintaining client satisfaction including managing relationships, delivering industry-leading results, and providing exceptional customer service;
  • Advising clients on industry best practices and emerging strategies;
  • Leading the process of providing clients with strategic marketing planning, including revenue forecasting and budgeting;
  • Working with client teams, including technology and creative, to assist in managing resources and timelines on projects; and

  • Ability to juggle multiple projects in a deadline-driven environment;
  • Excellent verbal, analytical, written, and presentation skills;
  • Experience working with eCRM platforms such as Salsa, Salesforce, or Luminate;
