Capital & Main, an award-winning state and national investigative news publication based in Los Angeles, is building one of the country’s only newsrooms committed to coverage of inequality. Our stories are frequently co-published by Newsweek, the Guardian, Fast Company and the American Prospect, among others, and our advisory board includes Robert Reich, Jared Bernstein and Barbara Ehrenreich.
In our first five years we have succeeded in reaching a small audience of influential leaders. We are now seeking to grow our audience to reach a wider group of concerned people who care about the critical challenges facing this country.
We know that in a digital world, people won’t find us – we have to find them. To do this, we are looking for a talented, passionate digital marketer and audience growth specialist with some experience in news and media. Top candidates will have demonstrated success in attracting and engaging audiences via email, search, social, live events, partnerships, and more, with knowledge of Facebook Business Manager, Google Search Console and email lead generation techniques.
This freelance position will initially be 20-25 hours a week and could develop into a full-time staff position. Pay for this position will be competitive. Women and people of color strongly encouraged to apply. Residence in Los Angeles preferred but not required.
