Tech Specialist

Who you are

Your ability to solve technical problems and build out email automations is outstanding. Your tech support and testing skills are superb and your experience with ConvertKit, EasyWebinar, Deadline Funnel, Zapier or similar automation tools is unrivaled. You know how to form a “Bonnie and Clyde” level partnership with an amazing website developer and create a smooth sailing website experience with the responsive website updates you create. While you’re not a marketing strategist, you do find the tech side of funnel and automations fun, and love keeping up with the latest trends and tools the platforms are rolling out. You’re a self-starter who loves bringing new energy and fresh ideas to the team.

You’re also passionate about startups, female entrepreneurship, and technology. You’re subscribed to the best blogs and newsletters to constantly stay up to date on what’s new with the tech tools you use for your work.

This role is a good fit for someone looking to embed themselves and expand their skill set within one or a handful of companies, rather than juggling dozens of clients at once. If you’ve tried running your own agency or larger business and prefer the simpler pace of going deep with one or two clients rather than spreading yourself thin with loads of clients, this might be perfect for you. 

Who you’ll work with

The Tech Specialist is a part-time contractor role, starting at 60 hours per month, with opportunity to grow the role and hours based on how your first 90-day contract progresses. You’ll report directly to our Marketing Director and our Operations Director, and collaborate consistently with our Website Developer, Marketing, and Customer Support team members. At this time, we are only accepting applications from candidates eligible to work within the United States.

You will work remotely, and should be experienced doing so, possessing a quiet workspace that includes a reliable internet connection, cell phone, and computer. You should be available during the window of 9am-5pm EST Mon-Fri for your duties as assigned (see the job profile for details). The Tech Specialist will be required to attend our once-weekly Team Meeting and once-monthly 1:1 meetings at a minimum.
