Why join?

This is a great opportunity for a young specialist to start a career in SMM and marketing working for an inspiring professional, managing own projects, developing multitasking skills, and work remotely from any place in the world!



Fluent written and spoken English - first of all, you will be writing, editing, and doing everything else in English, thus your written skills should be perfect and you should never allow yourself or others to have any grammar/spelling/typing mistakes; moreover, Vitaly prefers communicating in English, so you should be able to do it freely.

Self-reliance and amazing organizational skills - you will be given projects, not tasks. That means that you will be responsible for them from the beginning to the end. Vitaly will give directions, answer questions when they come up, but will not do micro-management every day. So, you have to be an independent self-starter who is not afraid of working without supervision, who tracks each step, always checks that everything is done on time, never forgets about tasks, proactively asks for more, etc.

SMM skills - we do not require you to have official working experience in that, but will definitely expect to see a great understanding and at least your personal projects and results. If you also have experience in email marketing and/or copywriting, that will be an advantage.

Graphic design skills - we do not require you to have official working experience in that, but will definitely expect to see your personal portfolio of created images (video and animation skills are a big plus as well).

Research and writing skills - you enjoy spending many hours finding the best sources, most interesting and relevant information, putting them together, structuring, editing, etc.

— Hunger to learn and to share your own opinion. Vitaly needs a person who will be a partner to him, who can apply their own ideas without being told what to do.

Opportunity to adjust to the PST time zone and have regular check-in calls with Vitaly at 23:00 - 00:00 (Moscow time) least 3 times a week.


What we offer:

Full-time employment (8 working hours per day, Monday-Friday). 

Mostly flexible working hours. You will have calls with Vitaly somewhen between 23:00 - 00:00 (Moscow time) at least 3 times a week, and overall, you need to understand that he will be online for any questions/communication only after 20:00 (Moscow time), but the rest of your working hours are flexible. Please note that we will not consider candidates who are planning to combine several jobs. Thus, if your CV includes a current job, that should mean that you are eager to quit it if selected to work with Vitaly.

Fully remote work. You may be located in any country or city, just need a stable internet connection.

Stability - this is not an internship or project work, we consider only the candidates looking for a long-term commitment (working 2+ years together). Please do not apply if you are looking for a short-term job.

Quick selection process. The selected candidate might start the job already after the 25th of January 2021.

Application deadline: 17th of January 2021 

Please note that the later you apply - the more intensive your selection process will be, for example, you will have less time for the test assignment, etc.
