Technical Writer Manager (Volunteer)


Published on March 24, 2020

Are you excited about the opportunity to work with smart and talented individuals committed to producing great content in the public interest?

Can you commit a minimum of 10 hours a week, working remotely on your own schedule with our far-flung, diverse team?

Check out Who What .

You will quickly see that we are a credible solution to the raging debate over whether the news is 'fake' or not,' with agenda-free research and bracingly fresh analysis.

We have thought long and hard about what limits journalism ability to effect positive change in the public interest, and we see two factors that dominate the landscape: (1) Commercial entities overly concerned with meeting financial goals and filling 'eyeball' quotas -- while keeping up with the rest of the pack, thereby ensuring a sameness and superficiality to the coverage (2) Ideologically driven outfits that cater to a specific mindset and dare not reveal things that would upset their readers -- or force them to reconsider their values.

At Who What Why, we go at each story with an open mind, boundless curiosity, and a willingness to dig deep and ask hard questions -- even when we are told not to. That will play a crucial role in our ability to continue growing and sharing our quality journalism with an ever-expanding, eager audience.
