About the role
Are you a natural connector?
We are. It is our passion, our drive, and our mission.
Who are we?
Interview Valet is the leader in Podcast Interview Marketing. We work with the top podcasts to get our Certified Guests™ interviewed, so they can be heard by their ideal customers. Our Certified Guests™ are leading authors, coaches, speakers, and brands focused on building solid relationships with their potential clients. Since 2015 we have served over 500 clients coordinating over 20,000 interviews.
Our mission is to personally introduce inspiring thought leaders to millions of ideal customers for the betterment of all.
Our values are:
- Relationships are the ultimate currency
- People remember how you made them feel
- In this digital age of automation, the personal touch is the difference
- Our success is proportional to our systems
- Innovation and speed of execution are the only true competitive advantages
- Life is short, work should be fun
We are not another pop-up, generic booking service that spams lists with Robo-emails. We are seen in the industry as a dedicated team that builds relationships and adds value to the podcasting ecosystem.
Interview Valet provides you:
- The geographically distributed team, currently at 18 people, to give you support and comradery
- The training and systems to ensure your success
- The database to provide you unmatched access
- The name recognition of the leading company in the space
What Do We Need?
Opening # 1: An amazing Podcast Relationship Manager who will interact with top podcast hosts to establish and build relationships by adding value to their show with ideal introductions of perfect guests. The goal is to make it easy for the host to say YES! to and Interview Valet Certified Guest™.
Opening #2: A phenomenal Client Account Manager, who has the heart to make things easy for our clients. They will be friendly, clearly communicate, and be proactive to address issues before they become problems. Their role is that of a White Gloved Concierge serving our clients who are the podcast guests.
These both are very public-facing role with our clients and partners. Having confidence, high emotional intelligence, a sense of urgency, and the ability to clearly communicate via email, text, phone, and video is a must! Everyone on our team has the ambition to excel, the maturity to work remotely, and the personality to mesh well with our current team culture. (see the values above).
Specifically, you will help us with:
Project Management: Coordinating with the clients, podcast hosts, their team and our team to ensure the proper introductions are made and that all of the details are taken care of. Only kids and clowns like surprises - we don't work with either. It's your role to ensure all of the details are taken care of. Checklists and processes will be followed and progress will be tracked in real-time in our online databases (Airtable, Asana, and HubStaff) so we can best track efforts, results, and deliverables.
Creative Copywriting: We want to ensure our podcast hosts and guests look forward to hearing from us. That means creativity. While we have best practices and templates available, if it all could be automated we wouldn't be hiring. We want a creative human to build relationships, connect dots, proactively solve issues, and add joy to the process.
Project Management: Keeping our database and project management systems (we use Asana/AirTable/Gmail) up to date in real-time so we can best track efforts, results, and deliverables.
The basics you bring:
- You are positive, outgoing, and have a friendly personality that shines through in virtual communication (email, video calls)
- You enjoy life, find meaning in work and love winning.
- You are a proactive problem solver
- You enjoy communicating by email, text, and video and are great at it.
- You realize patience may be a virtue...but it’s not one you have.
- You are a good person and see others the same way. You believe life is not a zero-sum game. We all can win.
- You are psychologically self-employees. You don't need a manager. You appreciate a leader. (We don't micromanage or babysit. We are all adults and professionals)
- You are coachable and want to be part of a winning team. You have a healthy ego and strong drive, but don't let it get in your way.
- You can balance multiple projects, demands, timelines, and quotas.
- You have attention to detail
- You are a digital native and feel comfortable with Gmail, Skype, Zoom, Google Docs
- You honor confidentiality, privacy, and loyalty. All team members sign Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDA) and a non-compete
Stop reading this now if:
- You are a cynic, sarcastic, or a pessimist. No judgment, but you won't fit in
- You are scared of technology
- You don’t like being measured, challenged, or being held to must-hit deadlines.
- You have never worked remotely before. It looks great from the outside, but it has its unique challenges
- You want everything to stay constant. We are a fast-growing company in an emerging industry. Roles, systems, and procedures are constantly refined, tested, and improved. We thrive on this. Others cringe at this.
- You are just looking for a J.O.B. We are obsessed with what we do, who we work with, and the value we provide. As a result, we have a very low turnover of performers.
What are the details of the position?
We are a geographically diverse, remote company. Before the pandemic, we got together throughout the year at various trade shows and fun places. We hope ot do so again in the future. You can work from anywhere you want - Home, co-working space, the beach....as long as it's got a strong internet signal and you can be productive. Work is what you do, not where you go.
This is a part-time 20 hour per week contract position (1099) with a starting rate of $15/hr plus discretionary quarterly bonuses (eligible for the first full quarter with the team). You must be available during some normal business hours (US) for video calls on Zoom. Other work may be done at other hours.
We are a fast-growing company in an emerging market (podcasting). We see this position leading to more hours, compensation, and opportunities based on your performance. We promote from within.
