This is a job opportunity that allows you to work from anywhere, gives you incredible advancement opportunities, plugs you into a network of high profile entrepreneurs and develops your skillsets as a core member of our rapidly growing company.
A Little Introduction
I’m Ben Krueger, lifestyle entrepreneur, outdoor enthusiast and founder of Authority Engine.Â It wasn’t all that long ago that I was working a dead-end job in an office with four white walls back in the US.Â I couldn’t take it, made a leap of faith and flew to South East Asia to strike out on my own and started building Authority Engine.
Since then, I’ve been providing clients with excellent podcast production and creation services, and word is getting out. The service is growing quickly and I’m looking to expand Authority Engine’s capacity as demand continues to rise.Â Some of our clients include Dan Andrews’ and Ian Shoens’ Lifestyle Business Podcast andÂ Tropical Talk Radio (which I was recently featured on here), and Jesse Lawler’s Smart Drug Smarts podcast. We’ve got clients knocking down our doors so we’re looking to grow our team quickly.
Our mission at Authority Engine is to help people turn podcasting into their most effective authority positioning, lead generation and engagement tool.
This is where you come in.
We’re Looking for Someone Who Is
- Self starting and passionate about continuous learning and skill development
- Excited about a full time position with incredible growth opportunity
- Reliable and timely with an attention to detail
- A native English speaker with developed writing skills
- Good with WordPress, online tasks and general use of editing softwares
You will be Responsible for:
Podcast Editing & Producing – I will train you to use programs like Adobe Audition to turn client’s raw audio files into beautiful podcast episodes.Â You will also be expected to write quality show notes to accompany the episode, link out to materials and resources discussed, etc.
Client Interaction – You will be in direct contact with our clients (typically experts or growing authorities in their markets), learn to manage expectations, field questions, send notifications and develop a relationship with our clients.
Project Management – Some of our services require the use of outside contractors and you will be responsible for managing, organizing the work and ensuring its completion.Â Also, as the client base grows, you will transition into the role of a project manager with team members completing specific tasks for each client under your management.
Reporting & Client Tracking – Part of your duties will be reporting progress for clients, and tracking simple things like client payments.Â Our business is also built on Standard Operating Procedures which dictate procedures for most tasks. You will continue to create, update and optimize these SOPs as new tasks and procedures arise.
Various Tasks – Authority Engine is a continually evolving company with multiple facets. We are flexible in our offerings and as such, there will be some random tasks like content moderation on the Authority Engine website, article writing, occasional calls with clients, etc.
You will work closely with me (Ben) to complete these responsibilities, and develop procedures and skills to best serve our clients while having a little fun in the process.Â I will expect you to be self directed in your work, but I will also provide lots of training and coaching to help develop your skills.Â You will be in on the ground floor of the company and considered my right hand man/lady.
