Remote Migration Advisor
Want to be part of something different? You can when you work with us.\n\nWe are looking to bring on one or two Migration Advisors to join our Operations Department. This is a location-independent full time position. If you are detail oriented, use investigative skills to solve issues, and are interested in expanding your horizons in a unique industry, we’d like to meet you.\n\nThis 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 grow our amazing team so that the customer experience throughout the migration process remains the de facto highest standard for buying and selling online businesses. Your work will help propel the industry forward to new levels not seen before.\n\nAnd we’re just getting started!\n\n**So what is a Migration Advisor?**\n \nA Migration Advisor takes a hands-on role, transferring businesses from sellers to buyers in a safe and efficient manner. This can be a stressful time for both parties as they near completion of a potentially life-changing deal. It will be your mission to oversee the asset transfer, keep things moving forward and ensure that everyone is in the loop regarding the migration status.\nYou will spend the first few of months training with our Migration Supervisor, George Sanderson. The first six months will act as your probationary period, at the end of which (all going well) we’ll have you up and running as a fully-fledged Migration Advisor.\n\n**What's the Position Like?**\n \n\nThe Migration Advisor role is vital to the success of our company.\n\n\nSince this role will have you speaking to buyers and sellers around the world, it can be a bit stressful here and there. You will need to work weird hours sometimes to make sure you can get on the phone with sellers in different time zones. You will also need to be extremely detail-oriented to make sure that processes are followed to a tee.\n\n\nNot all buyers and sellers are familiar with the technical aspects of migrating a business; you will need to guide them through the process in a clear and logical manner, ensuring all parties know what’s going on.\n\n\nOf course, as in any role, sometimes things may not go quite to plan. It’s at this point that your role becomes most critical; you’ll need to calmly troubleshoot issues and make buyers and sellers feel that we have things in hand.\n\n\nYou will drive all of our migrations through a multi-step migration process. We are constantly refining this process to make the transfer as seamless as possible and ensure that we are in-line with any updates to program terms and conditions. As you become more seasoned, you will be tasked with improving this migration process.\n\n\nWe will train you on how to use the various tools we use to migrate businesses. You’ll also be digging into the backend of websites and learning about the various technical aspects of moving a site.\n\n\nWhile you don’t have to be a “techie,” having the capacity to learn the technical nuances of the process is a must.\n\n\nYou’ll also be exposed to contracts and purchase agreements for multi-million dollar deals. It will be your job to ensure that the migration is conducted in line with the contract.\n\n\nFinally, on the rare occasion that some form of renegotiation is required during the migration, you’ll run point on that, helping buyers and sellers to reach a point that works for all parties.\n\n**What Skills Do I Need?**\n \n\nWe believe in hiring people that are a good fit for us culturally. A good fit is actually more important to us than the skill sets since we will teach you everything you need to know.\n\n\nWhile no previous work experience is required, having a background in customer service and/or some kind of technical chops is helpful. Plus, there are some qualities that will go a long way in helping you succeed in this position, such as:\n\n\n**You need to be detail-oriented.** Migration is a meticulous job. You will be closely following our tried and tested processes and it’s vital that steps are followed closely and accurately.\n\n\n**You need to be a team player.** The migration team regularly interact with other areas of the business. You’ll be working closely with our sales team to ensure a smooth customer transition when a deal is done. You’ll give feedback to our vetting department on processes tweaks they can make to make your life easier. You need to be good at communicating your thoughts and getting buy-in from colleagues.\n\n\n**You’re good at defusing problems.** Buying and selling a business is an intimate process. There will almost always be obstacles and challenges for you to help both parties overcome. You’ll need to approach problems in a fair and constructive manner, keeping buyers and sellers calm and giving them confidence that you’ve got their back.\n\n\n**You’re not afraid of getting on the phone.** The migration position will require you to get on the phone a lot with buyers and sellers. Your phone communication needs to be spot-on and you have to be comfortable making those calls to get all the information we need from the buyer and seller.\n\n**What's the Lifestyle Like?**\n \n\nOur 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!\n\n\nWe aren’t going to chain you to a cubicle. You’ll be free to work anywhere that serves your lifestyle best **(see USA resident requirements below)**. \n\n\nWhile 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. As you gain more experience, we are going to rely on you to make our process better and smoother for our sellers while also helping to increase the number of high-quality businesses that go live on our marketplace.\n\n\nYou won’t start off making much money.\n\n\nThis is an entry-level position. For the first six months, you will be paid $2,700 USD per month during the probation period. After six months, you will be introduced to our compensation plan where you will earn a base pay of $3,000 USD per month plus a performance based bonus. Within 12 months, you can expect to earn $40,000-$46,000 USD per year, and have paid, international healthcare coverage.\n\n**Love It. What's the Catch?**\n \n\nWhile our lifestyle is pretty great, this isn’t a gap year experience to go travel the world.\n\n\nWe are looking for career-minded people that can make a positive impact on our business. Sure, sometimes we really do work by the pool, but we also work hard.\n\n\nThere will be days when you clock in 12 hours. There will also be days when you are up at all sorts of strange hours dealing with our sellers who live anywhere from the U.S. and U.K. to Eastern Europe and Asia.\n\n\nWhile you might take a long break during the middle of the day, you might also find yourself burning the midnight oil as you hop onto a call to get a buyer or seller through the last hump of the migration process.\n\n\nA lot of people love the idea of finding a job that allows them to travel the world and get a different job later back home. That is not this job.\n\n\nWe want you for the long-haul. We want you to grow with us and turn this position into a prosperous career.\n\n\n\n \n\nBe sure to mention the word **ENHANCE** when applying to show you read the job post completely.

Those are scams! NEVER PAY FOR ANYTHING! Posts that link to pages with "how to work online" are also scams. Don't use them or pay for them. Also always verify you're actually talking to the company in the job post and not an imposter. A good idea is to check the domain name for the site/email and see if it's the actual company's main domain name. Scams in remote work are rampant, be careful! Read more to avoid scams.
