Human Resources Coordinator

Human Resources Coordinator

We are looking to bring on an HR Coordinator to join our team in Saigon, Vietnam on September 12, 2018, where you’ll start your training during our quarterly meetup.

Our company has grown significantly in the last year. You only need to look at our public quarterly reports to see the massive growth our company has achieved. We’ve been on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing American companies twice now! In 2016, we came in at 161, and last year, we came in at 172.

And we’re just getting started!

So what is an HR Coordinator?

So what is an HR Coordinator?

You will play a pivotal role in helping us grow, organize and vet future hires for the company. As the HR Coordinator you will be performing background checks on our potential employees, review and revise our hiring emails, update and maintain our career boards and other tasks associated with hiring new talent for the company.

You will spend the first 4-6 months with us in SE Asia training with our management team. This position has the potential to become location-independent once your training is done and you can expect some travel. (SE Asia, Europe, US, etc.) You will be in a probationary period for the first six months, and afterwards we’ll have you up and running as an HR Coordinator.

You should either be a digital nomad or interested in the digital nomad lifestyle. This is very important for this role, since our entire company is remote and our people are regularly on the move. We would need you to be knowledgeable about the unique challenges that comes with managing such a remote team so you can best serve them.

Ideally, we would want you to be based primarily out of SE Asia since so much of our team tends to live in this part of the world. This would allow you to meet face to face with the team fairly regularly and also travel to several events we do around the region every year.

What’s Our Story?

What's Our Story?

Empire Flippers started in 2011. Back then, we were known as the AdSense Flippers, and we were all about building our own niche sites. We would monetize those sites via Google AdSense. Once the sites were making a little money, we would sell them on Flippa for 20x their net monthly profit.

We recorded our entire journey by blogging and podcasting about it .

It was a nice little business and soon we built quite a following of people who loved what we were up to. It got to the point where people asked us if we would use our Flippa account to sell their sites. They told us it would sell easier since we had the audience, and they would pay us a percentage of the sale.

So… we said yes.

It wasn’t long before we were selling way more of other people’s sites than our own.

We realized there was something here. Something big.

In 2012, we rebranded to Empire Flippers and became an online business brokerage in our own right. We launched our marketplace and became the “go-to” solution for people wanting to sell their online businesses.

Fast forward to today, we now have the largest brokerage team in the industry. We have staff that is siloed for each part of the selling and buying process — everyone from marketing and sales team members, to vetting and migration experts.

Now, we’re inviting you to become part of our story.

What’s the Opportunity?

What's the Opportunity?

Becoming an HR Coordinator makes you a critical part of Empire Flippers. You will learn skills that will last you a lifetime in the online business world and you will be able to apply your HR knowledge to a unique remote working team.

You will become a brand representative of the Empire Flippers values, not just internally with our team but also externally. That is why it is important you are familiar with the digital nomad lifestyle.

Our team is growing fast, and that means this role could become fast paced as we continually seek to hire the best talent possible for the various roles we’re seeking to be filled. You will be helping to plan our organization’s future and to help add extra benefits and perks for the team that solves their unique challenges.

You will be able to learn from the very best when it comes to helping people buy and sell online businesses, and be able to work around the world once you’re up to speed.

What’s the Position Like?

What's the Position Like?

This is not a gap year position, nor is it just an excuse to travel around the world and fund those travels. We’re looking for career-minded individuals that can make a real positive impact on our organization.

Sometimes that means you will work a 10 to 12 hour day. At other times, you’ll be hanging with us on the beaches of the world (or just next to a really nice rooftop pool) and relaxing with us on a Tuesday afternoon. Either way, you’ll need to be committed to our mission and our vision.

Your job role will consist of more than just helping us with hiring new employees. Some additional roles you’ll be responsible for are:

  • Help us review our compensation plan
  • Performing onboarding and employee exit tasks such as setting up and removing accounts
  • Syndicate job openings to different platforms
  • Reviewing our insurance plans
  • Coordinate employee review and feedback sessions with their manager
  • Prepare, review and maintain all onboarding agreements (including with contractors)
  • Plan company meetups and outings
  • Performing monthly and quarterly reviews with management staff

What Skills Do I Need?

What Skills Do I Need?

We believe in hiring people who are a good fit with us culturally. We want people who are hungry to learn, but also people that will be fun to work with.

However, that doesn’t mean we aren’t looking for a certain kind of skill set.

You will need to have some background and experience with HR and preferably experience working with remote teams. Any background in e-commerce or online business is also helpful. If you have first hand knowledge of the digital nomad lifestyle, that will also be a big plus when we’re looking at your application.

You need to be excited about expanding the Empire Flippers brand. We love hiring people that are passionate about the online business industry. In many ways, we really are changing lives. We want you to be on board with our mission, participate in industry conversations, and getting people excited about working with us.

What’s the Lifestyle Like?

What's the Lifestyle Like?

Our company culture is built on the idea of travel, remote work, and living life on your terms.

When you first start off, you will fly to Saigon, Vietnam in September. You will need to pay your way to Saigon, but we’ll take care of the housing arrangements for the first month and you’ll receive a stipend for the remaining 5 months of your training. After those first four to six months, you’ll potentially be location-independent and able to work from anywhere you want — as long as that place has a good Wifi connection, of course.

You can expect to be making between $50-60k per year, depending on experience. We also offer international healthcare coverage that you will get once you’re out of the probationary period.

This kind of salary is enough to live a high-quality life (within reason) in Southeast Asia — or most of the world, for that matter.

Love It. What’s the Catch?

Love It. What's the Catch?

We love our employees and our work, but that still means you will need to perform up to our expectations. Hopefully, you will exceed those expectations and take us to new heights with the skills you bring to the table.

We love to play and travel. A big part of our company is about experiencing what the world has to offer and going after it. That being said, we also work hard.

Sometimes we have to work weird hours. It is not uncommon to take a 3 a.m. phone call when you’re in Thailand to connect with someone over in the U.S. Or vice versa. You will need to be someone who is ultra-flexible. Our business is truly global, and we have customers in every corner of the globe.

Details to Keep in Mind

Details to Keep in Mind

Remember, we’re not going to throw you into the fire right away.

We’re going to train you and be there to help you every step of the way. If this all sounds overwhelming yet exciting to you, then apply! You might be surprised how perfect you are for this role.

Once you understand our company and processes, you will dive into your tasks as a HR Coordinator.

We will review every application that comes our way. For those we think would be a good fit, we will schedule an interview with you. Typically, we do 2-3 rounds of interviews before we decide.

The cut-off date for applying is August 10, 2018. That will leave us about a month to review all the applications and give you time if you’re hired to prepare to come out to Saigon.

How Do I Apply?

Here is the sequence of events we use when hiring our new sales professionals:

  • The chosen applicant will be announced in mid-August
  • The chosen applicant will arrive in Saigon, Vietnam on September 12, 2018.

We will only accept submissions that include a YouTube URL. Please leave the video “unlisted” in preferences and share the link with us. The quality of the video doesn’t matter, and there are no bonus points for editing. We just want (up to) three minutes of you explaining (based on your previous experience):

  1. Describe how your past experiences and current skill set will allow you to succeed working as an HR Coordinator?
  2. Why do you think you are an excellent fit to work with Empire Flippers as an HR Coordinator?
