We welcome candidates who bring a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences to join us in working toward MSF’s common mission.



Our dynamic Development Department is responsible for raising over $350 million annually in funds in order to meet the financial needs of our organization which allows MSF to carry out its mission effectively and efficiently.

The Marketing Team is responsible for executing integrated marketing efforts, including prospect, renewal and cultivation campaigns and activities via all communication channels in order to maximize the revenue and increase awareness of MSF’s activities and concerns, expertise and values.



The Senior Digital Marketing Manager role is an opportunity for a brilliant, driven, and creative digital strategist and tactician to help us take our digital fundraising to the next level. Your priority will be to grow our digital reach, acquire valuable new donors and increase donor retention and lifetime value—with an aim of growing digital revenue by at least 10% each year.


In collaboration with the Marketing Director, Director of Development and the Communications team, you will lead the development—and execution—of a unified multi-year strategy for digital growth.

You’re an expert digital marketer with your ear to the ground of innovation and industry trends. You use real-time analytics and data-driven decision making to raise big funds. You like to win, and have a proven ability to get results. You live and breathe A/B creative testing, segmentation, reporting, SEM, SEO, UX, CRM, CTA, conversion rate optimization, media buying, audience targeting, user testing, heat mapping, data, visualization and rapid experimentation.

You believe in, and will champion, an integrated omnichannel marketing approach centered around the donor experience. You will use immersive storytelling and data-driven strategy to bring our work to life for our audiences. You will work to create online community engagement and have a conversation with our donors, and not at them, in order to drive loyalty.

You’re a collaborative team player with vision, determination, curiosity, and creativity. You practice brilliant execution—on quality, on brand, on time, and on budget. You will play a pivotal role on an energetic, innovative, and growing team dedicated to taking our digital marketing to the next level.
