El Paso Matters is seeking a revenue development director to support our mission of providing in-depth and investigative journalism to enhance civic engagement in a dynamic multi-cultural, binational community.
The revenue development director will help build a relationship-driven membership and sponsorship program to sustain and expand our crucial journalistic mission. The director also will work with the CEO in identifying grant and large gift opportunities. Ideal candidates have successful experience in digital marketing and audience development, as well as a track record of planning campaigns, strategic initiatives and events.
Our revenue development director will be a key member of a vibrant and innovative team, with a passion for the U.S.-Mexico border region. Prior media experience is a plus but not a must. We’re looking for a development director with a zeal for the necessity of a free and independent media to democracy and local communities. Flexibility and collaboration skills for working within a fast-paced startup environment are crucial.
