Experience: 3+ years
Employment: Contract

Affilimate

Germany, Berlin
Affilimate is an analytics platform that helps affiliate publishers grow their website's affiliate revenue through data. We do that in three ways:
Aggregating data from multiple affiliate networks in one place via API

Automating affiliate revenue attribution back to content and links

Optimization tools like conversion heatmaps and revision tracking
The result is a beautiful dashboard that gives affiliates of all sizes the kind of business insights previously reserved for the largest media companies.

As such, our customers range from bloggers and solo affiliates to multi-site portfolio owners, website investors, and established media brands.

We're a bootstrapped startup founded in Berlin, with team members across the world. Our co-founder Monica is an engineer and affiliate herself, and will be personally training you on the specifics of this position.

Description of the job

About the role

You'll help customers who use Affilimate's affiliate analytics platform.

This includes answering pre-signup questions from prospective customers, and then supporting them in configuring their (usually WordPress) websites and account correctly during onboarding.

You'll answer ongoing product-related questions and help us improve our support processes, documentation, and user experience.

In the process, you'll also become an expert in affiliate analytics and tracking.

Typical tasks will include:
  • Help onboard new publishers (customers)
  • Troubleshoot WordPress plugin issues relating to caching and performance, sitemaps, hosting, CDNs, and link cloakers
  • Answer product questions related to account setup, API integrations, and link tracking
  • Document and standardize these support processes
  • Add and maintain articles and tutorials in our Help Center
  • Answer questions sent to our Support email address
  • Answer questions posted in our Facebook community
  • Suggest UX improvements to reduce repeat support queries

The time commitment is 10-15 hours per week.
Head's up: Affilimate itself is not a WordPress plugin. It's an independent SaaS application, which users set up by adding a JavaScript snippet to their website.

Though most of our customers operate WordPress sites, you may occassionally support customers using other solutions like Squarespace or custom-built sites.

Compensation
$15 – $20 per hour

Location
Remote, some timezone overlap with Berlin (CET) is ideal.

Your location must be supported by our payroll solution.

Benefits
  • Work remotely and enjoy flexible hours
  • Minimal meetings (1x per month check-ins)
  • No on-call rotation
  • Work with a growing, bootstrapped startup
  • Paid week off for the Winter holidays
Requirements
  • Excellent written English. A key element of this job is explaining clearly and concisely how to fix technical issues to WordPress site owners.
  • Strong prior experience with WordPress plugins and ecosystem. You need to have worked with WordPress previously in a professional capacity.
  • Comfort with HTML, HTTP requests and redirects, sitemaps, caching, CDNs, hosting. You don't need to be a developer, but you should understand how websites and webservers work in practice.
  • Foundational knowledge of how affiliate links work (cookies, query parameters, etc). Helping our customers use affiliate tracking to improve revenue is our core business!
Nice-to-haves
You'll be at a strong advantage for this role if you have:

  • Specific past experience doing WordPress plugin support
  • Personally operated a website monetized via affiliate marketing in the past
Expectations
  • 10-15 hours per week + monthly check-in
  • You can work independently while still asking questions when something isn't clear.
  • We'll start slow and tag team over Slack and in Help Scout as you learn the product and domain.
  • After 3-4 weeks, you need to be able to handle most common support requests yourself and know the product in-depth.
  • The ideal candidate for this job is already proficient at troubleshooting WordPress technical issues, and wants a more flexible, part-time job that isn't stressful.
  • Apart from day to day support requests, specific tasks surrounding documentation and tutorials will be coordinated in our project management tool, Shortcut.
Hiring Process
  1. Fill out the application form linked below
  2. If you're a good match, we'll send you three real support requests Affilimate has received, and you'll draft responses. This should take about 30 minutes.
  3. If your answers are strong, we'll make you an offer to work on a trial basis at full pay.
  4. After a few weeks, we'll decide whether to continue working together long-term.
