We are looking to bring on a talented professional to join our HR Department in the role of Recruiter. Training will commence in early January and run approximately 4-6 weeks.
While the HR team works during business hours in multiple time zones, the role itself is 100% location independent, allowing you to live anywhere in the world (*see USA resident requirements below). Be it the beaches in Mexico or in a mountain resort in the Swiss Alps – the choice is yours.
This is a huge opportunity for you to work with one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S. and learn the ins and outs of the online business world. Over the last couple of years, our company has seen explosive growth, and there is no sign of it slowing down.
In order to keep hitting our goals, we need to expand our horizons and improve our customer experience to a point that makes us the de-facto standard for buying, selling, and investing in online businesses. Your work will help propel the industry forward to new levels not seen before.
Are you ready to get started?
If this sounds like an exciting opportunity for you, then read on to learn more about our company and how to apply for the position.
The EF Recruiter works directly with HR and individual team supervisors to carry out annual hiring goals for each department.
Responsibilities include undertaking all hiring activities from advertising open roles, and interviewing candidates to closing hires.
Ultimately, the person in this role will be responsible for consistently sourcing qualified people while maintaining a positive candidate experience as brand representative of Empire Flippers.
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 all 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 who are 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.
Becoming a Recruiter makes you a critical part of the team at Empire Flippers.
You will represent our brand and promote Empire Flipper’s company reputation as a great place to work to all candidates and interested applicants while learning skills that will last you a lifetime in the online business world.
Your work ethic and skill set will have a direct impact on our growth. You should have at least 2 years experience in the full recruitment life cycle and also have various recruiting methods in your arsenal. If you’re a strong communicator and comfortable forming hiring strategies, we’d like to meet you.
While we are an Inc. 5000 company, we’re not overly corporate. You’ll work with management in all teams to make sure the job gets done. We believe in collaboration, and that means every department in our company comes together to help bring a solid candidate onboard.
It has been an effective strategy, and has worked well for us.
When you first come aboard as a Recruiter, you will start learning more about our business and the different kinds of roles we have in our company.
You will become well versed in all of our pre-employment processes, from how our job postings are created and posted to our career page to methods we use for sourcing candidates.
Once you have the basics down, you will network online and offline with potential candidates to promote our employer brand, reduce our time-to-hire and ensure we attract the best professionals. Ultimately, you will build a strong talent pipeline and help hire and retain skilled team members for our positions.
You might be wondering, though … what will your daily work routine really look like once you’re up and going?
Here is a list of daily tasks we’ll expect from you (though this isn’t an exhaustive list and could change):
Ultimately, you’ll help our company grow and thrive by hiring the most qualified people.
We believe in hiring people who are a good fit with us culturally. We want people who are hungry to learn, but also people who will be fun to work with.
You must have experience. We are looking for a skilled recruiter with 2+ years of full-cycle recruitment experience who has strong interpersonal skills and can speak to our candidate base by selling the EF culture and career opportunity. We’re requiring hands-on experience with large job sites like Monster and Indeed.
Sales chops. The person in this role must have a sales mentality. If you’ve got recruiting experience you understand the churn; preparing the job, starting the search, phone screening, video interviewing, and recruiting top candidates by selling the job, the culture, and the company with enthusiasm!
You’re a confident and proactive self starter. You will face obstacles and challenges. You need to be able to pick up the phone and call a top tier candidate who isn’t sure if they should accept the role. Perhaps they have another job offer, or are being asked to stay on at their current company. It will be up to you to sell the benefits of working for Empire Flippers to make sure those reservations are met head-on and solved.
Technical experience. To be successful, you must have a working knowledge of Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) and Candidate Management Systems (CMS).
You’re 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 get people excited about working with us.
Our company is built on a culture of remote work, travel, and living life on your terms. Being a location-independent full-time position is one of the many benefits! You’ll be free to work anywhere in the world that serves your creativity best. The choice is yours.
We aren’t going to chain you to a cubicle. While we’re an Inc. 5000 company, we’re not a Fortune 500 company. You won’t be some badge number in the corporate machine. We will want your input and insight.
We are going to rely on your experience to make our recruitment process better and smoother for our candidates. Because of our fast growth in each department, we will need good, trained “hands on deck” candidates to handle that growth.
When you first start off, you will be training with our HR manager and other team supervisors for 4-6 weeks. We typically meet in-person during this time, but due to COVID-19 and global travel restrictions, we are assessing travel requirements during this process and will know more as the hire date gets closer.
Speaking of travel, our company holds bi-annual meetups where we gather in a fun location and collaborate over the latest projects and ideas. The purpose of the meetup is team building – we make sure there are a variety of activities outside of company presentations and breakout sessions. We are planning another meetup in the last quarter of 2022 (location TBD). So dust off your passport, and we’ll aim to see you then!
We love our team members 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.
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 if 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 candidates in every corner of the globe.
Sometimes we really do work next to the pool. We might take a long break in the middle of the day, but burn the midnight oil early in the morning and late into the night with a 12-hour work day. That isn’t every day, but it does happen when we need to finish a project or answer an applicant’s series of questions, so you’ll need to be prepared for that.
A lot of people would love to have a side gig or a gap year experience that allows them to travel the world before finding a job back home. That is not this job.
We focus on a strong life/work balance and encourage our team to tackle their bucket lists while working in an exciting, challenging, and ever changing industry.
We’re made up of a team of successful entrepreneurs and former corporate professionals and we want you to become a long-term team member with us. Ultimately, we want this recruiter position to grow into a profitable career for both you and the company.
The annual salary for this position is $75,000 – $80,000 USD. We also offer paid, international healthcare coverage and equity stake in the business.
Remember, we’re not going to throw you into the fire right away.
When you first come on board, you’re going to learn about our company. We will do a deep dive into how our processes and systems work and teach you about each department within the business.
As you get better acquainted with our company and processes, you will dive into the low-level tasks, starting off with plenty of guidance and later becoming an independent fully fledged Recruiter for Empire Flippers.
It’s important to stress How We Work – which is from anywhere in the world. We are results driven and completely remote (pre-pandemic even), which for us equals total freedom!
If this all sounds overwhelming yet exciting to you, then apply! You might be surprised how perfect you are for this role.
