Email Broadcast Careers

Welcome to Email Broadcast – We’re Hiring!

We’re thrilled that you’re considering an opportunity with us, whether it’s a full-time, part-time or contractor role. Each member of our team is extremely important to our success and we love to work with star talent. Our company may be a little different from your typical corporate atmosphere and you should know that coming in. Be sure to look around and get to know us.

Current Positions:

Project Manager - Contractor

Email Broadcast needs your help. We’re looking for a part-time, long-term Project Manager to help keep us on track as we grow our business. If you thrive on deadlines and problem solving, this could be the job for you.

This job is a permanent, remote contractor role within our company. You’ll have plenty of flexibility to get your work done, but that comes with accountability. You should be generally available from 10 to 4, Monday through Thursday (yes, you read that right—we take Fridays off.). This is when client meetings, team meetings, communication, and collaboration happen. If you have other commitments during this time, this isn’t a good fit.

As a project manager, you’ll be responsible for making sure projects are completed on time, anticipating and solving any logistical hiccups, helping streamline any inefficient processes, and updating documentation on your improvements. You’ll also pitch in on tasks within your skill set and attend weekly team meetings and occasional client calls, where you’ll share your ideas and contribute to discussions.

To be successful, you need a blend of some specific skills:
———————————————————————–
Strategic Thinking
Can you look at the desired end result of a project and work backwards, mapping out what needs to happen to get there? A lot of our projects come with road maps, but some of them don’t. The Project Manager is key in strategizing projects from start to finish.

Organization
When managing multiple projects with many tasks and dependant timelines at once, organization is key. You’re not just keeping track of what needs to be done, by when. You’re also keeping track of who it needs to be done by, and what their current workload can support.

Proactivity
Working ahead and addressing potential problems before they happen is key to finishing projects on time (or early!). If you look at a check-list and immediately want to check off everything you possibly can…you might be the person we’re looking for.

Still interested? See if the following describes you:
=====================================

WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR

12-20 hours per week of work. That’s about how much you’ll be working with a typical project load. Want more? Once you prove your ability to deliver on your deadlines, there are plenty of tasks to apply your skills to that will increase your hours. This job can grow into what you make it, but those 12-20 hours will be your primary priority. If what you really need is a full-time job to pay the bills (or if you’re looking for another part-time job to add to your other part-time jobs), that’s cool, but this isn’t the right role for you.

A long-term role. To be clear: This isn’t a freelance opportunity. If you’re used to piecing together one-off projects and short-term gigs, we’re not a good fit. The Project Manager is a permanent contractor role within our company.

To be part of a team. Yes, you’ll do a lot of work on your own. But lone wolves need not apply. Each month you’ll be working with me, her, him, and them.

Decent Pay. Your hourly rate will be between $18 and $22 per hour depending on your experience. There is also a year-end bonus, and bonuses for the early completion of certain projects.

YOUR SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE

2+ years experience in a project management setting
2+ years experience in a leadership role
An AA degree or higher
Proven ability to meet and beat deadlines.
Organization and planning
Efficiency
Clear Communication
Work ethic
Research capabilities

Familiarity with email platforms (MailChimp, Constant Contact, etc.)

WHAT IS IT LIKE TO WORK FOR EMAIL BROADCAST?
============================================

Working for Email Broadcast as an independent contractor—yes, work from my home—score!

So I had this need… typical stay-at-home-mom that needed to make some additional money to pay for the extras that come with kids: shoes, toys, never-ending school fundraisers, and maybe even braces at some point. My husband works full time, but with the high cost of living it just wasn’t quite enough to cover those “extras.” It was simple: I wanted a part-time job, wielding my copywriting and client wrangling skills, and yet I didn’t want to shell out for daycare while I toiled away in some corporate office.

Enter Email Broadcast… the perfect solution that met these very exact needs. I seriously love my job with an amazing set of badass peeps, great clients, and I can even work in my pj’s if I so wish while I suck down as much coffee as I can take in.

–Dara Gibbs, Account Coordinator Team Lead

Sales and Marketing Assistant - PT Employee

We’re looking for a Sales and Marketing Assistant to help us grow.

This is a remote (or local at our office), part-time employee role working 10 am to 4 pm (Pacific) Monday – Thursday, with occasional overtime needed depending on workload. Yes, we take three day weekends EVERY week.

With an hour for lunch, that’s 20 scheduled hours with potentially another 0-5 when it gets crazeballs, so that’s how we get to 20-25 hours per week.

Most people need a full-time gig to make ends meet and we get that. If you’re looking for a full-time role, or hoping this will grow into one, or want to match this with your other part-time gig, or want to work on this while you grow your company after hours, or want to do this job while continuing to serve your freelance clients—this role is not for you. We’re looking for someone that would be extremely happy with a part-time role only for the long-term (like… years). Still with us? Read on!

What would you do? I’m so glad you asked.

The overall mission of this role is to help us meet our sales goals and you would have a variety of tasks in helping us get there. Many of these tasks will require your competence in various Internet-related applications, which you will either bring to the table or be able to quickly master. If you’re not extremely all-things-Internet savvy, this role is not for you. If you’re not familiar with most of these applications below, but are a “quick learner,” this role is not for you.

Your Top 10 tasks would include:

1. Creating new sales proposals quickly and accurately using Prezi.
2. Updating sales agreements (Word doc) with client’s info and service level and posting to HelloSign for signatures.
3. Cold calling partner prospects (web development, SEO firms) posing as an admin to set up a business meeting between their CEO and ours.
4. Working inside of Basecamp on assigned tasks, and thoroughly documenting your progress according to our best practices. If you’re more of a pen and paper type person, this probably isn’t for you. We’re more Basecamp and Google Docs people.
4. Updating our WordPress website with new content.
5. Optimizing content on our website and YouTube channel for SEO.
6. Fielding customer/sales inquiries from our website “Can we help you?” popup.
7. Researching tradeshow and speaking opportunities for our CEO.
8. Reaching out to journalists pitching story ideas relevant to our field.
9. Researching and applying for various industry awards.
10. Handling occasional admin tasks when CEO is overwhelmed.

If you have high energy and attention to detail that you can focus on a task until completion, that will serve you well. If you have past experience with most of the applications listed above, that will give you a leg up.

If your relationship with time is somewhat “flexible,” this will be a painful position for you. We eat our Wheaties, show up early, and come to work ready to kick ass for a short, but intense period of time so we can enjoy three day weekends. If you’re used to stretching 4 hours of work into an 8-hour day, you will not be happy here. If you need to set an alarm to get to work by 10 am Pacific, this will not work out. Go-getters only need apply.

Wow. Still here? Awesome.

Next Steps:

1. Send an email to sandmasst2018[at]emailbroadcast.com with the exact subject line: Your 2018 Sales and Marketing Assistant (do not get creative here—this is how we auto-sort the incoming mail).

2. Include a couple of paragraphs or a cover letter (PDF) on why you’re the perfect fit for this role.

3. Your cover letter should explain why part-time work is enough for you and what you like to do with your spare time as a human. We like humans.

4. Attach a copy of your current resume. This also should be a PDF—not just for us, but for anyone you send it to. If you don’t know how to convert a Word doc to a PDF, you are disqualified from this role.

5. Look for an email back from us with next steps. You should hear back within 15 minutes or less. Oh yeah, we’re that good.

Compensation:

$15-20 per hour DOE.
20-25 hours per week
3-day weekends
Unpaid holiday for the week of 4th of July
Unpaid holiday for two weeks at end of year
Year-end bonus

Account Coordinator - Contractor

What if you could control your own schedule, work from home, participate in strategic and creative marketing campaigns, and be a valued member of a kick-ass remotely connected team? Oh—you’ll also never be expected to work on Fridays. Yep. That’s right. Three-day weekends, every weekend.

Sound like a dream? Pinch yourself.

Email Broadcast is looking to hire a part-time, long-term Account Coordinator (and general marketing rockstar). Our Account Coordinators play a vital role here. They’re the connection between us and our clients; they’re in charge of keeping those clients happy; they’re the makers of amazing monthly email campaigns.

This job is a permanent contractor role within our company. You’ll have plenty of flexibility to get your work done, but that comes with accountability. You should be generally available from 10 to 4, Monday through Thursday. This is when client meetings, team meetings, communication, and collaboration happen. If you have other commitments during this time, this isn’t a good fit.

As an Account Coordinator, you’re going to be responsible for a handful of diverse clients (i.e., your accounts could include a high-end dermatology office or a remote fishing lodge). You’ll work on creating a monthly email campaign for them from start to send. This includes coming up with creative concepts, writing compelling copy, coordinating graphic requirements with our designer, A/B testing, requesting and tracking client approval, scheduling, reporting, and everything else in between. You’ll also attend weekly team meetings and occasional client calls, where you’ll share your ideas and contribute to discussions. To be successful, you need a blend of some specific skills:

  • Client wrangling. Whether you’re getting buy-in on a content idea, or tracking someone down for an approval; you should be a perfect balance of persuasive, professional, persistent, and personable.
  • Project tracking. I.e., Can you juggle? More importantly: Can you focus? You’ll be working on several email campaigns for different clients all at the same time. You have to be able to transition from one project to the next without dropping the ball but disciplined enough to focus on each task and ensure high-quality completion.
  • Marketing wizardry. You have experience and know-how to hook an audience with a headline, dazzle them with compelling copy, and persuade them to click, buy, sign up, stay tuned, or whatever else your campaign calls for!

WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR

Copy Editor & Writer - Contractor

Do you love what words can do?

Are you a fellow card-carrying member of the Grammar Police?

Can you share your enthusiasm with others in a constructive way?

Awesomesauce. We want you on our kick-ass team. We’re looking for a copy editor who cannot only edit the em dash out of our copy, but can also teach the craft of storytelling and copywriting to our other writers.

In addition to copyediting, you may be asked to (gasp) write copy of your own—for clients and/or for us. But before you get too excited, our requirements may rule you out.

Here’s some requirements:

* You must be available between 10 am and 4 pm Pacific time M-TH. This is when we do business, meet with each other and clients, and get work done.

* To be clear, you’re a contractor in control of your own schedule, so if 3-5 am is your zone of genius, good on ya. But the rest of us expect to be able to regularly reach you and schedule meetings with you during our work hours, as needed.

* You’ll need to be perfectly comfortable working only 5-10 hours per week indefinitely.

* You must have first-rate grammar skills and be able to prove it by passing our grueling grammar exam (verbal and written) under a scorching bare lightbulb.

* You’ll need to turn around copy editing assignments in 24 hours (M-TH), even if you get 5 or 6 in the same day.

* We want you to not only practice your copy editing craft, but teach it as well so our writers become better writers. You should shed tears of joy when one of your pupils wins the Pulitzer.

Here’s who we’re not looking for:

* If you don’t know what a style-guide is, you can stop reading now. Seriously… looking it up is not going to help. Unless words have been your thing professionally, this is not a fit.

* If you have a day job, and you’re looking to pick up some extra work, this is not the right gig for you. See requirement number 1.

* If you have another part-time job during these hours, or any other regular commitments, this is not right for you. See requirement number 1.

* If you are a freelancer with a bunch of other clients, this is not right for you. We need all of your attention for when things get crazeballs.

Basically, the only people that will be right for this long-term contracting gig are ones that don’t need it. We get that. Are you our needle? Maybe your significant other is the main breadwinner and you need something to do. Maybe you’re independently wealthy and just love words. Maybe you’re the AI device that Elon has been warning us about.

Next Steps:

What? You’re still here? Yay!

1. Send a cover letter and your resume to CE2018[at]emailbroadcast.com. Make sure your cover letter is boring and full of typos and run-on sentences. OOH – and make sure you mix up their and there. Lastly, be sure each paragraph has multiple and vague thoughts.

2. Be sure to tell us WHY a part-time contracting gig works for you long term. Like, we look forward to meeting your grandchildren.

3. Prepare yourself for pure silence as we are awestruck by your perfection. Seriously, it may take us a while to get back to you.

Compensation:

$20-25 per hour DOE

Graphic Designer - Contractor

Imagine if you could secure a long-term gig where every day you got to express your creativity with different ideas and completely different designs. Through us you can work with a bunch of different clients and have a wide variety of assignments tapping into ALL of your design skills. Instead of pounding out the same old stuff every day, you’ll get creative reign to exceed our clients wildest dreams.

You’ll also have the warm and fuzzy feeling of running your own show, setting your own schedule, and having your own life – but still get the enjoyment of being part of a kick-ass team.

Role Description

The role of graphic designer is an important one at Email Broadcast. The images in an email are as important (if not more important) than the copy. Many of our clients have formerly produced their own email campaigns and are paying Email Broadcast as a means to significantly step up their branding – that’s where you come in.

Our graphic designers need to have a wide range and a lot of tools in their belt.  Each client has it’s own brand and voice and it’s your job to communicate this month’s message visually, pulling in the reader for further engagement.

While we value creativity, it’s nothing without accountability. We expect our graphic designers to engage with our team, answer emails, be active on Basecamp, make meetings on time, and generally have integrity and be accountable. We love to work with creative geniuses, but only if they show up.

We work on deadlines and demand that you have the ability to manage your schedule so that you can do great work for our clients. We abhor fire drills and drama and do very well at managing client expectations with regards to lead times and turnarounds times, but we’re not perfect. Our standard assignments include a one week turnaround, but occasionally you’ll be asked for a quick turnaround on an urgent project.

This is a long-term independent contract position. Location is flexible, but availability & tech capabilities for video chats scheduled between 10am and 4pm PST, Monday through Thursday is required. What this means is that you’re free to do your work whenever you want to, but we do operate like a normal business with normal business hours and have meetings throughout the week for which you’ll need to be generally available.  We also have a lot of collaborative meetings, so a willingness to speak up and present ideas & opinions is extremely necessary.

This position is for approximately 10-20 hours of work per week. We work a short, intense work week with a focus on efficiency so we can spend the rest of our time living fulfilled, happy lives.

Required Experience:

  • 2 years experience or better on web design/email design/commercial layouts
  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience in Design
  • Proven ability to deliver projects on/ahead of time
  • Access to the full Adobe Creative Suite with expert status in Photoshop

Helpful Experience:

  • Knowledge of email marketing best practices regarding design
  • Email platforms (Mailchimp, Constant Contact, Campaign Monitor, etc)
  • Basecamp, Highrise, & Google Docs

This role is for a remote contractor, but our headquarters is located in San Luis Obispo, CA

  • Equal opportunity employer
  • Rate DOE- 1099 contractor status
  • We don’t work on Fridays
  • We close for two weeks at Christmas and one week for 4th of July

Next Steps:

Please follow these steps exactly:

1. Send an email to designer2017[at]emailbroadcast.com

2. In the subject line use this: Your 2017 Graphic Designer (don’t get creative here – this is how we sort the incoming mail and all other responses will be trashed as Spam).

3. Include your resume, a link to your portfolio, and a couple of paragraphs on why you might be the perfect person for this position, why you are interested, and why a part-time contractor role will fit with your lifestyle long term.

4. Include your hourly rate requirements with the understanding that this will be consistent work of 6-10 hours per week or more as we grow.

5. Also, please tell us specifically which ad brought you here.

Thanks for your interest!
