Search Engine Optimization Manager (Part Time Volunteer)

*Note: The following is an opportunity for flexible, part-time, volunteer work. Please DO NOT APPLY if you are only looking for paid employment. All positions are remote/ work-from-home.

Are you an experienced SEO Manager who is passionate about making a difference? Would you find it exciting to work with smart and talented individuals committed to producing great journalism in the public interest? Can you commit 10 hours a week to our mission, working remotely on your own schedule with our far-flung, diverse team? 

WhoWhatWhy is seeking an SEO Manager eager to build and strengthen our strategy for SEO optimization across our organization. This person will be fundamental in working with various internal teams to increase quality traffic, improve search rankings, and website performance. 

WhoWhatWhy is a nonpartisan, agenda-free news organization. Not left-wing, not right-wing, not consensus-seeking, we report the truth, whatever it is. We approach each story with an open mind, boundless curiosity, and a willingness to dig deep beneath the surface — and don’t back away in the face of pressure from powerful institutions and groupthink. 

We are a nonprofit. We are not funded by a zillionaire. We do not accept corporate ads. As such, we are only currently able to pay a small core team, as well as experienced professional freelancers — and rely primarily on skilled volunteers to fill out our growing organizational infrastructure. 

Age does not matter. We have among us young students, vibrant retirees, and everything in between, from all walks of life.

Join us!

  • Collaborate with organization leaders to build and execute a strategic plan to improve and expand our online presence
  • Determine weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly success metrics and generate reports for the team

You will be expected to attend your department’s recurring meetings. Beyond this, you will work on your own schedule. We kindly ask for a minimum commitment of 6 months for at least 10 hours a week. Because our team is spread throughout the world, we rely on a combination of Slack, email, and conference calls, and expect everyone to be responsive in a timely manner.
