Operations & Marketing Manager 

Two years after humble beginnings, this little but mighty travel brand is itching to grow.
For the right person, this is a dream job. You can be a smart generalist and have your hands in everything while you help build a growing travel ecommerce brand. You'll get to experiment and see ideas through at jet-speeds. 
Help build a machine! Help make our mission shine through everything!
We want to inspire thoughtful travel and encourage Americans to explore the world.
We are creating beautiful educational material, connecting travel bloggers, and designing stuff people love. 

Your role

You'll start off by working on special operations and ecommerce projects, and making your way to taking over all business activities of the company. 
Your job number 1 will be:
1) To learn the ins and outs and keep the business running smoothly
2) Grow the ecommerce and distribution channels sending us to new nooks of the world.

We'll brainstorm up new ideas together, and you'll bring them to life, handling the logistics and getting to see the results.
 

What you will be doing the next 3 months

You'll hit the ground running helping with logistics. We will draw this out like a treasure map for you to dig towards week by week. 
 
  • Find new printing partners, and evaluate the idea of building out a local print operation
  • Help hire an associate to manage a campus rep program
  • Manage and learn from our operations assistant 
  • Learn and add to our company wiki
  • Give feedback on product development and help plan logistics around new production runs
  • Strategize and execute new marketing activities 
Secondary

    Skills

    You MUST have some experience with either Ecommerce or Printing
    Although you'll learn a lot on the job, we need you to have professional experience with another online store or in the printing world. There is simply too much to learn if you don't have experience with either of these
    You like people and enjoy connecting online
         This is a people based role where you'll be interacting with contractors and customers regularly. You should be able to keep others motivated and provide feedback. When doing outreach, people should be pumped to get your email in their inbox and enjoy corresponding with you. 
    Systems-minded
         You're going to be building a machine. You're analytical and don't have excel-o-phobia. You're comfortable creating a process for everything you do daily. And creating processes for those who could be reporting with you in the future. 
    Spectacularly engaging writing skills
         You're thinking to yourself "I could rewrite this job post and make it a zillion times better"
    Bonus
    • A love for getting organized on Asana
    • Tight visual taste and basic image editing skills
    • Some playtime with paid advertising

    Terms

    • This isn't a coasting job. It's a learning-oriented role for someone excited to see the ins-and-outs of a growing ecommerce brand. 
    • You'll be expected to hit deadlines and work through weekly sprints. You'll need a get-it-done attitude. If you don't know something, you'll learn it and ask help if you're stuck. 
    • You'll work mostly on your own. Which means you'll have to be organized and self-motivated to hit deadlines. Initially, there will be co-working and collaboration with the founder.  
    • The first 2-months will be seen as a trial period and you're guaranteed to learn. Don't treat this as temp job though. The goal is that you can run the operations of the company and maneuver yourself into a linchpin position.
     

    What's in it for you? 

    • Austin based job but with the freedom to take stints working abroad
    • A basic starting rate while you ramp up 
    • A high growth role that can put you in an important position quickly with a profit share
    • Lots of learning and a laboratory for short feedback-loop experimentation
