My name is Ariel Camus and I'm the founder of Microverse ([login to view URL]). I am an international entrepreneur and software developer based in San Francisco who previously founded TouristEye and sold it to Lonely Planet after growing it to more than 1 million users.
At Microverse, we believe that talent is evenly distributed, but opportunities are not. And our mission is to fix that by training and connecting 1 million people with remote jobs by 2030.
We are starting with a full-time online program to train remote software developers (Ruby on Rails + React) in an industry with more than 1 million unfilled jobs. We don't charge anything until the student gets a job. After that, they pay a percentage of their salary.
At Microverse, students from all around the world work in small distributed teams learning together while doing remote pair programming and holding each other accountable.
As part of the program, we ask our students to work on freelance projects to get some real-world experience before they start looking for full-time jobs. And here is where we need some help...
We are looking for someone who already has plenty of experience working on Freelancing platforms like [login to view URL] to lead our Freelancing initiatives in the company. We need someone who can help us create an Agency on Upwork and to help us source projects for our students. We don't want them to waste time biding for projects and negotiating with clients.
This is an amazing opportunity to join a startup in its early stages no matter where you are. Our headquarters are in San Francisco, but our team members live all around the world.
This is a commission-based opportunity for now: we will give you a percentage of all the payments received from clients, and you don't need to code or manage the software developers directly, you just need to get the right clients.
Interested? Please apply and make sure to answer all the questions.
Please answer the following questions when submitting a proposal:
1. Do you normally get more clients than what you can handle?
2. Are you interested in bidding for projects and assigning them to other developers for them to complete those projects?
3. For long have you been working as a freelancer on freelancer.com?
4. Do you understand that this is a commission-based project? You will get a percentage of all the money that other developers make through the projects you find.
5. How did you get into Freelancing? How did you find your first client?
