Job Description

Join the Media Platform for the Global Development Community

You: an ambitious and organized digital marketing professional who wants to make a difference in the world and can smoothly juggle multiple projects while sweating all the details.

Us: a buzzed-about social enterprise committed to changing the world through our audience of one million aid workers and development professionals. An international organization founded at the Harvard Kennedy School, Devex is headquartered in Washington, DC, and has offices in Barcelona and Manila and reporters around the world.

Our diverse global team includes 100 web-savvy journalists, analysts, developers, designers, and marketers. We cover the most important issues in the world, from eradicating malaria and polio to fighting climate change to ending poverty in our time, and professionals at NGOs like Save the Children, CARE, ONE, and the Gates Foundation rely on us to be in-the-know.

You will have an opportunity to grow and learn from sharp, committed colleagues, and be part of an innovative culture that’s low on bureaucracy and high on impact (and fun). Get to know us better by checking out our tumblr page.

Why this position is great for you:

  • You’ll get to learn about all the great things we cover, the most important issues in the world, from eradicating malaria and polio to fighting climate change to ending poverty in our time
  • You’ll get to support digital communications campaigns that convene and engage some of the most inspiring leaders in the world, from celebrities to philanthropists to aid workers making a difference on the ground
  • You’ll have a chance to hone your skills on leading industry e-commerce platforms. We use Marketo, SalesForce and other tools to connect over one million individuals across the international development community every day.
  • You’ll get to work directly with professionals at NGOs like Save the Children, CARE, ONE, Gates Foundation and more who rely on us to be in-the-know
  • We’re a young, dynamic company that’s growing fast and that has an open, collaborative culture
  • There’s no bureaucracy here. You’ll get to own your work with the support you need
  • Want to get ahead? We’re filled with stories of people who joined Devex and moved up, and up, and up. And that’s exactly what we’re looking for from you.

What we need from you:

The Digital Marketing Associate will sit within the Partnerships team. The responsibilities include:

  • Engineering marketing campaigns for the Devex Partnerships teams. This includes everything from writing snappy and engaging marketing emails to building email lists and logic, to testing messages, to leveraging Google AdWords campaigns, to reporting on what worked and what could be improved.
  • Collaborating with web designers and developers to create unique and user-friendly websites for online campaigns and other special projects that will help build the brand of Devex and our partners, increase engagement with the Devex community, and raise awareness about pressing global development issues.
  • Tracking project-related data and analytics including creating performance reports for engagement and compiling information for wrap-up reports for clients.


To fit well in this role you must be sharp, organized, know how to see a project through from start to finish, and have the writing and creative skills to know a great website or ad when you see it. And - this really matters - you need the communications skills that attract colleagues to want to work with you. You also must have…

  • A bachelor’s degree in a related field (Communications, Marketing, etc.)
  • 1-2 years experience leading design projects for sites, digital ads and other digital marketing
  • Familiarity with Google Analytics and Google AdWords
  • Basic understanding of HTML code
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Excel
  • The ability to write great marketing copy in English
  • US work authorization

Preferred Qualifications:

  • 2-4 years’ experience in digital marketing
  • Familiarity with digital marketing platforms, particularly Marketo, Salesforce, Webex or ReadyTalk
  • You haven’t just heard of the World Bank and the Gates Foundation; you actually know what they do and how they work
