Revenue Manager

Empowering Colorado is a nonprofit journalism organization dedicated to providing independent, unbiased news coverage of all facets of energy development.

We’re looking for a jack-of-all trades team member who can help us grow and refine our news publication and advance our revenue goals. This fun and interesting freelance opportunity will give you a first-hand look at the evolving media landscape. You’ll network with a range of established professionals and weigh-in on discussions about how local news is funded and supported in today’s media environment.  

The Revenue Manager will work with the Publisher/Executive Director to develop strategic partnerships, events, advertising and other content-driven revenue opportunities necessary to fund news coverage of energy development in Colorado. You’ll also develop and implement marketing and communications strategies in line with Empowering Colorado’s Strategic Plan. You’ll work cooperatively with our editorial team and the established professionals and community leaders who make up our Board of Advisors.

The ideal candidate will possess excellent interpersonal, writing, and technical skills and have a passion for fact-based journalism and creative entrepreneurship.
