We’ve helped public radio and television organizations raise tens of millions of dollars — support for the news and culture that makes communities richer and more connected.

As Marketing Manager, you are the key link between content creators, makers, and our users. You use analytics, intuition, and direct communication with our members to improve their experience on our digital properties. You run a sophisticated, niche email marketing program that gets our content into the hands of our members.

You also manage the Greater Public brand and the brand of public media’s largest annual professional event, the Public Media Development and Marketing Conference (PMDMC), using your refined eye for design and creativity to make us sparkle across all platforms.
