About Concern Worldwide
Concern Worldwide is an international humanitarian organization committed to the relief, assistance and advancement of the poorest people in the least developed countries of the world. Founded in Ireland in 1968, Concern Worldwide has over 4,700 personnel working in 25 countries across the globe. Concern believes in a world where no one lives in fear; where all have access to a decent standard of living and the opportunities essential to a long, healthy and creative life. Our mission is to help people living in absolute poverty achieve major improvements in their lives, improvements that are sustainable without ongoing support from Concern.
We believe in creating a culture of inclusion where everyone feels empowered to bring their full, authentic selves to the workplace. Building a diverse and inclusive team is an absolute necessity to deliver the solutions needed to achieve our core mission, because without promoting justice and equality, we cannot eliminate extreme poverty.
Concern Worldwide US (CUS) is an independent affiliate of Concern Worldwide, with offices in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. CUS advances the Concern Worldwide mission through mobilizing financial and human resources, as well as influencing and activating networks in the US to elevate programs globally.

Information about the Marketing Technology Fellowship:
The Marketing Technology Fellow will have the opportunity to impact the organization by developing a triggered email campaign. The Fellow will begin the project by matching a high-performing recent marketing campaign where current revenue has dropped with web assets that address the program area(s) addressed by the campaign. Then, the Fellow will use the marketing automation platform to ensure that the matched web assets are properly tracked so that subscriber views are recorded and scored. Finally, the Fellow will develop both the messaging and technical parameters and ultimately launch a campaign triggered by subscriber actions on matched web pages.
This is a unique opportunity to learn from our Marketing Technology Manager whose experience spans marketing automation, email and web development, analysis, and journalism.
