VIDEO INTRODUCTION FOR THIS JOB: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iyj3cM0jjfw
Do you consider yourself an expert in the “Internet”, IT, utilizing different web tools, webmastering? Do you spend more time on the computer than with your friends or family? Do your friends constantly come to you as their first port of call for all things IT? And do you love creating/managing websites?
If you answered yes to these questions, then read on.
My name is Oleg and I’m a founder of a media company that runs a number of content blogs.
One of such blogs is animalso.com. We treat our websites as a complete resource guide for anyone who owns a dog or looking to buy, adopt or foster one. We focus on providing simple, actionable advice on such an important topic as “Dog Ownership.” Our goal is to ensure our readers follow through with our guidance and get decent results in keeping their dog both healthy and happy.
And we are doing pretty well – we have more than 500 000 monthly visitors across our portfolio of websites. This means, 16 000 dog lovers from all over the world read our articles every single day!
We’re looking for a detail-oriented techy team member who can help us maintain and grow our site, animalso.com, and several other websites.
This is an exciting opportunity for you to work on the thing you love most - Creating and managing Websites! Whether you’re a hobbyist or consider yourself a pro on the topic, we want you to work for us. You’ll be covering a wide range of tasks (more on that below).
For this, we need a true expert - no fakers here, please! If you don’t truly have a passion for Webmastering, it’s not going to work, I’m afraid.
Still reading? Great!
So, what’s in it for you? Not only do you get to make money from your passion, but you’ll also be part of a wider team who are driven to grow the sites further. We’ll give you a consistent, flexible flow of work alongside world-class IT tools to ensure you’re able to produce the very best websites in the niche with minimal bottlenecks.
You’ll also get to be part of exciting, growing projects with a bright future and for which we have big plans in the pipeline. In other words, your work will really have an impact on websites and others’ lives (bold, I know).
You'll be assigned tasks and given detailed feedback by myself. It's quite likely that in the first couple of weeks there will be a lot of feedback and learning curve, but generally, once you’ll get into the swing of things, that part should be minimal.

1) Solving hosting-related things (set up a new website on WordPress, installing SSL certs, fixing issues, implementing redirects via .htaccess)
2) Formatting posts on WordPress

-Flexible working hours throughout the week (you can manage your time as you wish; feel free to travel if you want to)
