Are you an up-and-coming digital marketer who wants to make a difference protecting and restoring the abundance of the oceans? Come join a dedicated team of professionals who are working to protect our oceans, which play a critical role in reducing the impacts of climate change, feeding a growing global population, and supporting the livelihoods of fishers, their families, and their communities.


Oceana is the world’s largest nonprofit organization focused solely on restoring the resilience and abundance of the ocean. Since being founded in 2001, we have won more than 225 policy victories and protected nearly 4 million square miles of ocean.


We achieve measurable change by conducting specific, science-based campaigns with fixed deadlines and articulated goals. Our campaigns focus on getting policy changes in countries that, govern nearly one-third of the world’s wild-caught fish, including Belize, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Peru, the Philippines, the United States, Canada and the European Union.


Oceana is seeking a digital marketing specialist to work as a member of the digital marketing team within the International Marketing and Communications department to help plan, create and execute strategies to raise funds, grow our grassroots activist base, and win policy campaigns. The Specialist must have proven digital marketing prowess, especially in pursuit of nonprofit fundraising goals. Our grassroots donors and activist are the key to Oceana’s success, and the Specialist will interface with supporters on a daily basis answering questions, addressing concerns and performing general supporter service. To succeed in this role, the Specialist must demonstrate analytic and creative ability as well as strong communication and people skills. The Specialist will work on many different projects or needs on any given day and should be comfortable meeting tight deadlines and managing requests from diverse stakeholders.


The ideal candidate recognizes the need to be flexible and act differently in different situations, especially when managing staff and working with internal stakeholders – bringing empathy in times of stress and change, firm direction in times of uncertainty, or diplomacy in times of conflict. That flexibility should extend to the candidate’s work product as well, capable of quickly adapting to new situations and to draw on past successes and failures to solve current problems. They can see the big picture and acts today in a way that leads to achieving future objectives.
