Job Description

I am looking for someone who would be able to remotely manage my business for me. As of right now the company is only selling one product and it is in minimal bulk orders. The first order of these parts is being manufactured now and we will begin distributing late March early April. As of right now we only have 5 customers but would like to add more. Some of the things you will be required to do. Send purchse order to our supplier when more parts are needed. Pay bills. Process orders from customers send invoices. Do market research on potential customers and send them sales emails. Do followup emails with some existing potential customers. Run an online accounting / book keeping software similiar to Zoho. We do not have one yet you will need to research what software you think will best meet our needs.

Our company is looking to expand into new projects beyond our single part that we invented patented and our now selling. We would like to create an app in the next couple of months you would need to research app building companies for us and help us find the right one for our needs. We know what we want the app to do and will provide you with all the information needed to get it made. After this app is created we would need to find a way to market the app and get it to as many people as possible. You would need to find a marketing company or someone on odesk who can market apps.

We have two more inventions that we would like to get patented and start selling within the next year. You would need to find companies to make prototypes as well as do market research on each part to find the best way to bring them to market. We have been succesfull in brining our first invention to market but do not have the time to manage the business and all the new projects that we want to start. We need someone who is willing and able to help us to grow our company and manage other people on odesk as well.

As of right now I dont feel it is a 40 hour a week job but once things get rolling it will be. If you are willing to do the work the hours will inevitably increase.
