We’re looking for an Associate to join one of the best firms in the do-gooder business in our Digital Fundraising and Advocacy Practice Area. When you come work for us, here’s what you’ll find: Work that is awesome. We only work with clients who are changing the world. And, we say no to clients if we don’t believe in their cause or if we can’t help them. Colleagues you can count on. Kind, dedicated, passionate people who bring the smarts, get things done, and help you to do your best, too. So that’s us.

Now about the work… We run digital fundraising, membership, and advocacy programs for our clients. Lots of politically progressive groups like Planned Parenthood, League of Conservation Voters, and PETA. Cultural organizations we love, like the American Museum of Natural History. And many causes that are working in the most dire situations in the world such as the American Red Cross and Oxfam America. Day-to-day, we’re figuring out how to find, recruit, and retain supporters in order to raise revenue, win campaigns, and build brand recognition and loyalty for our clients.

Here’s what you’ll be doing in this role:

  • Work in a team to create and implement effective digital campaigns for clients.
  • Manage eCRM technology such as EveryAction and Luminate to code email communications in HTML and run queries to launch emails.
  • Execute A/B testing plans to optimize emails and webforms.
  • Pull and analyze data email messaging, fundraising performance, advocacy engagement, and more.
  • Help draft action alerts, social media copy, and other creative materials.
  • Project management: Keep task lists, meetings agendas, and communications calendars across your clients. Wrangle colleagues at all levels to keep your teams working effectively. Do your part to help us run smoothly – including carefully tracking all of your client hours as well as pitching in with small office management responsibilities.


Skills and experiences required for this role:

  • 1-3 years of full-time digital marketing experience, or at least 6 months of exclusive, full-time email marketing experience.
  • Demonstrated ability to use and learn digital marketing tools and technologies (e.g. coding basic HTML by hand, peer-to-peer texting programs like ThruText, eCRMs like EveryAction and Luminate, database management).
  • Capability to crunch numbers in Excel and draw insights from the results.


Skills and experiences we expect of all M+R employees:

  • Acute attention to detail.
  • Ability to prioritize your time to meet deadlines for multiple projects.

  • Capability to tackle big projects by breaking them down into smaller pieces.
  • Ability to see a problem and propose a solution.
  • Unrelenting drive to seek what can be improved and offer ways to fix any potential roadblocks.
  • Understanding of how your words and actions affect others.
  • Kindness and consideration for others.
  • Experience bringing a lens of inclusivity to all of your interactions with colleagues.
  • Passion for the role that your work plays in creating change in the world.
  • Drive to work collaboratively – soliciting ideas, seeing each other\’s perspectives, and always doing what you say you will do.
  • Comfort admitting what you don’t know and recognizing that seeking and receiving feedback is part of the learning process.


Skills and experiences that are preferred, but not required:
