Our Hiring Process

We have had team members work from 10 different states. When you have a work-from-home operation in such a quickly-changing industry our process has to be a bit unique.

Here’s our approach…

There are basically 4 stages:

  1. A series of Interviews – including some skills, personality, and aptitude tests.
  2. Part-time for ~10-15 hour/week – This will be a paid project and allows you to get up-to-speed on our team, customers, what we do and also get a feel for working from home effectively. Often this can be done nights and weekends while we ensure this is the perfect match for everyone.
  3. Part-time 25-30 hours/week (optional) – If this is mutually beneficial, now you really get to take off. You’ll never be micromanaged but at this juncture you know the big picture, our processes and procedures for generating more leads, and it’s up to you to improve our client’s web presence. This is extremely fun and rewarding because it’s very self-directed but with some of our other experts an IM or Google Hangouts chat away.
  4. Full Time – Welcome to an elite club of internet marketing gurus! You will be one of the best in the industry at this point and will continue to grow and learn just as fast as you can handle. You’ll have some seriously sweet perks to go along with your new super-geek status and our goal is to continue to expand those as we increase in profitability.

We are a profitable 9-year-old business with NO venture capital money, debt, or outside investors.

You will be team member number 13. You will be expected to contribute and you will have a blast because we have a ton of fun!

We’re remarkably good at online lead generation…
But we are even better at recruiting.

Join the Optimized Marketing Team!

Go ahead. Fill me out!
    Check as many options as you're interested in. 🙂
  • We'd love to know if it was a customer, friend, family member or someone else who thought you would be interested in joining our team.
  • You'll have more room to explain in detail later.
  • You can round to the nearest number of months.
  • If you need more room, continue writing on the back of this sheet of paper. (Bet you thought you'd never have to read that miserable, essay-test instruction again.)
  • Ok, you will have a boss, he just hates when you call him that. He claims some sort of strange, negative, psychological issues associated with the term. (We call him boss sometimes anyway just cause it's funny to see him squirm.)
  • I have nothing funny to write here. Not everything is a joke, alright. This is a job application! Get serious!
  • Check the box if on a scale from 1-10 you're at least an 8.
  • Even if you're not familiar with all of them now, more than one of these tools your going to have to own like a boss. (In this instance, using the term boss is completely acceptable.)
  • We do more copy writing than design work but sweet skills in either area would be... uh... sweet.
  • Take this chance to fill us in on the details we forgot to ask you about. Go ahead, brag a little. But not too much. Just the right amount. Don't mess this up. Seriously.
  • Max. file size: 10 MB.
    Just don't be mad if we don't read it. Resumes are just such poor indicators of one's talents and passions that we don't really like them. We can act like a normal business and put it in a file, though.
