APPLY TO HOST RECRUITMENT ROLE

A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER:

Hi fam, Al here.

First a big thanks to everyone's who's reached out regarding this role 🙏 I sincerely appreciate the amazing feedback I've received.

So here's the deets. This job is best suited for anyone with any experience recruiting talent to work at companies. If this is you, you know a little about marketing, a little about human resources and a little about operations.

Additionally, in a similar way that a talent recruiter gets paid when their candidate gets hired, this role gets paid when their candidates' trips get listed. Specifically, $5 for each host up to the first 50. Then $10 for the next 150. So, it's a "commission" mindset. Except,

  • ​You're not selling, you're inviting, since most of the hosts you'll be reaching out to want to earn a sustainable income from hosting their communities on outdoor activities; and
  • ​There are no upfront costs for listing, so a sale does not actually happen when your candidates' trips are listed, but you will be compensated anyway.

​Anyway, after your 200th candidate, this job can potentially become internal and full time for you. You'll be in line to potentially manage your own team, if you want. And there will be other incentives which can be discussed during your onboarding process.

Plus, the perks of working for an outdoor recreation platform where you'll be able to try any outdoor activity you want with an amazing, diverse and welcoming fam.

If you're interested, apply here. Know someone who might fit the bill, forward them this link. 

Thank you!

ABOUT THIS OPPORTUNITY: We're launching a growth department! What's a growth department?

It's recruiting new hosts onto our platform and is similar to talent recruitment and it's how Outerthere gets new hosts to list their trips on our platform. To do it involves a combination of marketing know-how, client service and data analysis.

We'd love your help to launch and shape this new initiative! You'll get a say on final responsibilities that make sense for this role. You'll get to pick your own hours and work remotely. And as we meet milestones together (see below), the growth potential for this opportunity can be unlimited.

WHAT'S EXPECTED FROM YOU: You are creating awareness for a platform in your state and across all outdoor recreation niches where new hosts or experienced guides can launch and grow their outdoor businesses and generate sustainable incomes. And you will be inviting these outdoor leaders to get their trips listed on our platform. After they've accepted your invitation, you're handing off. That's it.

HOW IT'LL START: You will start as a freelancer (IRS link for 1099 contractors). You will be compensated $5 for every host (up to 49) who lists their trips on Outerthere based on your efforts.

You will then be compensated $10 for every host after 50 (up to 199).

There are no deadlines to reach this milestone, although the first day of the next season (i.e. spring, summer) is when we'd like to see you reach it.

You will have access to data to help you understand your performance. This will be considered a testing period.

HOW IT'LL END: With the 200th host that you successfully get to list on Outerthere, this opportunity may become a salaried, full-time role with participation in our company's healthcare benefits for you or others where you'll have had direct input into the final responsibilities of this role.

And of course, the perks. You'll earn credit towards trips on the Trip Calendar on Outertere with every milestone.

HOW YOU'LL BE SUPPORTED: You'll have access to monthly trainings, initially to get onboarded on then on the latest tips and tricks to being an outstanding recruiter, with on-going coaching and support.

Additionally, you'll be part of a team, which means you should expect to be active in our Growth Team messaging and seasonal virtual meetings. That implies keeping it real, but also respecting everyone's input.

PLEASE COMPLETE THIS APPLICATION

Are you familiar, proficient or expert working with social media?*
Are you familiar, proficient or expert working with Meetup?*
Do you have any experience with client services and/or customer service?*
Do you have any experience with talent recruitment and/or human resources?*
