      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 to join us as a vice president. The right person will live and breathe supporter engagement, digital fundraising, and advocacy and be eager to help our clients run best-of-breed digital programs in support of their mission. 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. We’re a little biased, sure, but you also won’t find another team like ours: We’re wired to bring together cutting-edge direct response strategy and execution for the most pressing issues of our time.

      In this role, you’d be on the front lines of the client relationship and responsible for designing and implementing cross-channel digital marketing campaigns that deliver stellar results. You will work with many clients with very different types of engagements, but you won't be alone: You’ll be managing a team of associates, strategists, writers, and production staff.


      Successful candidates will be responsible for:
      • Working with nonprofit partners to develop strategies that maximize grassroots fundraising by bringing together breakthrough creative and tech resources, including custom, proprietary solutions;
      • Designing innovative digital fundraising, advocacy, and communications campaigns;
      • Leading cross-functional teams to implement client campaigns over all digital channels, including email, web, social media, and search;
      • Generating relationships with new nonprofit partners (Is there a cause close to your heart or organization you admire? Bring them in!);
      • Assessing client KPIs and ensuring maximum ROI of digital campaigns;
      • Advising clients on industry best practices and emerging strategies;
      • 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;
      • Identify prospective clients in need of the services that we provide and provide an entrée for us to design and pitch engagements; and
      • Providing top-quality customer service to clients, including regular reporting and invoicing.

      Must-have qualifications:
      • 3-7 years of in-house nonprofit or agency experience in digital communications, fundraising, and marketing for nonprofit organizations;
      • Client management experience;
      • Experience managing cross-functional project teams;
      • Ability to juggle multiple projects in a deadline-driven environment;
      • Excellent verbal, written, and presentation skills;
      • Experience working with eCRM platforms such as Salsa, Salesforce, or Convio Luminate;
      • Passion for making our world a better place.


      Salary floor for this role begins at $130,000 per year, depending on experience.
