What’s The Opportunity?
Becoming an Affiliate Manager (AM) makes you a critical part of Empire Flippers. You will learn skills that will last you a lifetime in the online business world.
You will be responsible for vetting, onboarding and cultivating successful affiliate partnerships. You will work in tandem with referrals from other departments, while also actively building out a pipeline of potential targets to sign up as an affiliate.
You will oversee the affiliate program, continue to innovate, tweak, and ultimately expand the program and associated SOP’s. As the AM, you will keep track of all affiliates within Hubspot, routinely communicate for relationship building with affiliates, spot-check the affiliates and their referral channels, and determine the validity of any affiliate referrals.
You’ll be working closely with our marketing team where we’ll teach you the ins and outs of the online business brokerage industry, coming from years of experience. You will also be in close contact with the sales team to routinely assist them by jumping on calls with potential “big whale” partnerships to explain the affiliate program and to assist with white glove treatment.
This is a full-time remote position. Our company is growing at a fast rate, which means excellent opportunities for personal and career growth. We may ask you to attend conferences too, which can help you network with industry leaders. What’s the Position Like? Working as an AM would include both routine job duties as well as larger projects to tackle and implement.

Love It. What’s the Catch?
This isn’t a gap year experience. This is not a temporary contract.
If you’re applying just because you want something to fund your travels before you start seeking out a “serious” job, then you probably shouldn’t apply.
We’re looking for career-minded people who share our vision and see where we’re going. We want you to be part of that vision and help us get there over the long haul.
And while we play hard and sometimes really do work next to the pool all day, we work even harder. Sometimes you will be putting in a 10-12 hour day as business demands arise. You’ll be working weird hours to match other team members time zones, and you’ll sometimes have to face some critical feedback.
You will be expected to perform to our expectations and really help us grow our business to the next level. We’re counting on you.
If you can see yourself growing into a profitable and meaningful career with us and love what we do, we want you to be part of our team.
Details to Keep in Mind
While the Affiliate Manager role will in large part be built from scratch, this position itself is not an entry level role. You will start with a six-month probation period earning $2,000/month base rate plus immediately join our lucrative bonus sharing plan. Should company performance hit 100% of on target earnings, this role has a very good opportunity to earn between $50,000-$60,000 in the first year.
We’re going to start you off slow. You’ll first learn about our company and what each department does; then you will be given some low-level tasks to ease you into the position. Over time, your skills will grow and you’ll be making a lot of decisions on your own. However, you will always have our support and knowledge to lean on. We aren’t going to throw you to the wolves — you’ll be part of a high-functioning team that is here to help wherever we can.
Our Director of Marketing and CMO will be reviewing every application. If we think you’re a good fit, we will reach out to you to do a video call interview. After the first interviews are done, our final candidates will be brought back for a final second interview before we make our decision.
*US resident requirements: we will accept candidates residing in Texas, Florida, or Colorado, as we are registered for payroll in these states. Otherwise, US candidates should plan to live abroad or have plans to relocate to Texas, Florida, or Colorado.
We have a no side project policy: we do not allow any ownership, association, or affiliations with online businesses or websites. If you are the owner of an online business, then you will be expected to either sell the business before you join us or sunset it upon accepting a job offer from us. If you are not comfortable with this, please do not apply.
A background check is required.
