Job Description

We are looking to bring on a few friendly Customer Advisors to join our Customer Service team starting April 5, 2021. This is a location-independent full time position. If you have a Customer Service background and are interested in expanding your horizons in a unique industry, we’d like to meet you.

This is a huge opportunity for you to work with one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S. and learn the ins and outs of the online business world. Over the last couple of years, our company has seen explosive growth—and there is no sign of it slowing down. In order to keep hitting our goals, we need to expand our horizons and grow our amazing team so that the customer experience remains the de facto highest standard for buying and selling online businesses. Your work will help propel the industry forward to new levels not seen before.

And we’re just getting started!

So What is a Customer Advisor?

The Customer Advisor is considered Empire Flippers’ front line representative, providing exceptional chat support to our customers and potential customers. The person in this role is responsible for dealing with outbound enquiries, emails, and keeping customer satisfaction at the core of every decision and behavior.

The person in this role must enjoy talking with people and have excellent interpersonal skills.

Could this be you?

Training for this role will commence remotely and should last 4-6 weeks. One of the many benefits is that you’ll be free to work anywhere in the world that serves your creativity best, be it the beaches in Thailand, which does have superb 4G connectivity and cheaper cost of living, or in a mountain resort in the Swiss alps – the choice is yours (*see USA resident requirements below).

If this sounds like an exciting opportunity for you, then read on to learn more about our company and how to apply for the position!

Becoming a Customer Advisor makes you a critical part of the team at Empire Flippers.

You will represent our brand and be the first contact point within Empire Flippers that existing customers and potential customers will likely hear from when they interact with us. You’ll take on the challenge of maintaining the high bar for the customer experience while supporting the overall efficiency of Empire Flippers.

Your work ethic and skill set will have a direct impact on our growth. We will offer you training and give you insights into the online business space. The high achiever in this role may see that it’s a great step into the company and a springboard to either a fully-fledged Customer Advisor or a different role around operations for high performers.


Here is a list of daily tasks we’ll expect from you (though this isn’t an exhaustive list and could change):

  • Provide chat support coverage M-F – two shifts to be filled:
    8am – 5pm EST or 5pm – 2am EST
  • Handle outbound calls. This may include discussions with potential buyers or sellers who want to understand how our process works.
  • Identify customers’ needs, clarify information, research every issue and provide solutions and/or alternatives.
  • Properly handle escalating unresolved queries to the next level of support.
  • Build sustainable relationships and engage customers by taking the extra mile.
  • Create tickets and provide general support work in Zendesk as needed.
  • Update customer data and produce activity reports as needed.
  • Preserve and grow knowledge of Customer Advisor procedures, recommending process modifications or improvements as needed.
  • Communicate with colleagues via Slack messaging application.
  • Attend weekly team calls via Zoom.
  • Review documents sent by customers.
  • Other duties as assigned.

What Skills Are Needed?

We believe in hiring people who are a good fit with us culturally. We want people who are hungry to learn, but also people that will be fun to work with. It’s important to keep in mind that we are all remote workers. This means that you would need to be comfortable working alone, while knowing you have support from coworkers who are just a Slack message or phone call away.

While cultural fit is imperative, that doesn’t mean we aren’t looking for a certain kind of skill set:

  • Proficiency in English.
  • Strong attention to details.
  • People person – must enjoy helping others.
  • Ability to closely follow processes.
  • Strong client-facing and communication skills.
  • Can work on a flexible schedule.
  • You are proficient with Google Suite, Slack, Skype and Zoom.
  • Advanced troubleshooting, time management, and multi-tasking skills.
  • Ability to ask questions whenever unsure about how to proceed.
  • You must be highly motivated, goal-driven and coachable.

What’s the Lifestyle Like?

Our company is built on a culture of remote work, travel, and living life on your terms. Being a location-independent full-time position is one of the many benefits! And while we are a geographically distributed team, the Customer Advisors in this particular role will need to work set shifts, 40 hours per week.

There are two shifts to be filled. Please select one or both on the application form: 8am – 5pm (EST) or 5pm – 2am (EST). However, this doesn’t mean you must live in the USA. You’ll be free to work anywhere that serves your lifestyle best (*see USA resident requirements below).

You won’t start off making much money.

This is an entry-level position. For the first six months, you will be paid $2,500 USD per month during the probation period. After six months, you will be introduced to our compensation plan where you will continue to earn a base pay of $2,500 USD per month plus an additional performance-based bonus.

The Details to Keep in Mind

Remember, we’re not going to throw you into the fire right away.

When you first come on board, you’re going to learn about our company. We will do a deep dive into how our processes and systems work and teach you about each department within the business.

As you get better acquainted with our company and processes, you will start with the low-level tasks, having plenty of guidance and later becoming an independent fully-fledged Customer Advisor.

Our Operations team will review every application that comes our way. For those we think would be a good fit, we will schedule an interview. Typically, we do two rounds of interviews before we decide.

The cut-off date for applying is February 21, 2021. That will leave us a time to review all the applications, and give you time if you’re hired to prepare to start with the company on April 5, 2021.

If this all sounds overwhelming yet exciting to you, then apply! You might be surprised how perfect you are for this role.
