Now Hiring: Remote Business Manager
Are you interested in learning all aspects of an online eCommerce store while helping the owner grow the company? This could be the perfect role for you! This is a full-time role for a fluent or native English speaker that can be done from anywhere in the world. As the Business Manager, you’ll be working directly with Jennifer, the owner, as her Right Hand while managing the day to day of ScrapbookingStore.com. This role is perfect for someone who is hungry and passionate about growing online companies.
About Us/Who We Are
ScrapbookingStore.com is a subscription eCommerce company that curates beautiful scrapbooking kits, stickers, paper and more for our club members. We also have a growing online store for additional scrapbooking supplies.
The company launched in 2014 and quickly amassed 24,000 Facebook followers who were drawn to our beautiful and affordable kits. Our customers are all based in the US and are typically women ages 45+ who enjoy crafting. Our customers are very nice and generally engaged within our community. The owner, Jennifer, bought the business in 2018 and has grown it +50% since then.
Our team is completely virtual. Jennifer, the owner, is based in the US and leads overall strategy + handles fulfillment. Jo is our Social Media Lead and is based in the Philippines. Aside from social media, she helps with emails, content and other general projects for ScrapbookingStore + Jennifer’s other businesses. (Jennifer’s LinkedIn)
Our culture is very open. We love new ideas and will give you the opportunity to cultivate them, test and implement. Our hours are flexible but we do ask that you are online for a few overlapping hours with US time zones in order to handle customer support calls and our online chat. Otherwise, you will have a series of daily tasks (centered around customer support & marketing) + a list of strategic projects which will be managed via Trello and Slack.
The reason we are hiring is we’ve recently lost our previous Business Manager due to a health issue in her family.
