Last but not least, they know how to ask for help when needed and to give feedback to others, even to the CEO, when some things could be improved.

About Us / Who We Are

Rental Scale-Up helps short-term company leaders take the right decisions for their business. Our audience and clients are made of enterprising Airbnb hosts who want to start a vacation rental business, large vacation rental property managers who want to scale their business, vacation rental industry vendors who want to get more business, and niche vacation rental listing sites that went to grow their revenues.

We also run our own property management companies, with a few villas in Bali and St Barths. For each of these destinations, we have a blog, a newsletter, and social media channels.

Working Style

  • This is a remote position, working directly with the company’s CEO. It works best if you are close to Central European Time Zone.
  • Most work will be assigned digitally via team management software (Asana)
  • We will establish a regular cadence for check-in calls (about once per week) – on these calls we’ll catch up on tasks for the week, share feedback, and brainstorm. These calls allow us to keep in touch, as well
  • This is a part-time position to start (about 20 hours a week) and we track hours in Harvest. The goal is more to understand which activities take most of our time and to see whether it makes sense.
  • Some days or weeks we will have more work to do that just must get done, others less. We don’t want “clock watchers” on the team. If you have to work 9 or 10 hours one day to get something urgent out but then 5 or 6 the next day, or one day the following week that’s perfect by us. Your commitment to getting the job done is in return for me not micromanaging your hours.

Training

  • We have a small but growing library of videos for new hires to watch to get up to speed quickly – your training time will be paid!
  • Initially, you’ll also do several calls with the CEO for training and getting to know us

Who You Are

  • You should have a minimum of 2 years of experience as a content publisher or as a social media expert.
  • You should be honest and trustworthy.
  • You should be highly detail-oriented and always focused on checking / double-checking.
  • You are extremely organized and are good at managing a project and your time. You are great at documentation processes and at following them. You are also able to see where to improve a process and to make suggestions accordingly.
  • You should be operations minded – thinking about streamlining processes and everyone’s experience, writer, designer, and CEO, better at each step along the way. Saving time is saving money!
  • You should have excellent English communication skills – especially written, but also over the phone
  • You should be good at English grammar, writing, and creating clean and attractive social media posts that elevate our brand
  • You should be able to adapt to Rental Scale-Up’s style – early on we’ll give lots of feedback on types of photos we like, the type of language we like to use on social media, etc. Even these “subjective” pieces are important to a great product.
  • You should be highly task-oriented and have a great work ethic – we want A-players who are committed to getting things right and completed on time
  • You should have integrity and honesty and be able to maintain the highest standards of confidentiality
  • You should get along well with our team and have fun! Life is too short to work with a team you don’t like!
  • You should not be scared to suggest new, faster, or better ways of doing things! We help our readers and clients make better decisions, so we are ready to have you help us make better decisions too!
  • You should try to figure things out on your own before asking the team. Yet, if you are stuck for more than 2 hours on a task, ask for help. It is way better than not being able to deliver on work.
  • Skills
    • Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, PDF, Google Docs, Google Sheets, Gmail
    • Asana or other project management tools
    • Social media – Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook (Hootsuite is a plus, but training is also available)
    • Newsletter publishing tools (Kartra is a plus, but training is also available)
    • Basic WordPress (we can train, but this is a plus)

What’s in it for you?

  • Flexible schedule – work from home, a coffee shop, wherever! As long as you’re putting in the hours and getting high-quality work done, it doesn’t matter to us (so long as you’re available for calls when we schedule).
  • Discover more about a hot industry: Airbnb is a popular topic and understanding the industry around Airbnb will give you the keys to the whole travel industry.
  • Steady income – This is a position for at least one year (if you pass the 1-month probation period). We are demanding but we also have a system of bonuses to keep you motivated.
  • 3 weeks’ paid vacation
  • Learn and grow – In the past, we hired a social media manager who then became the head of operations of a vacation rental property manager at one of our partners.
