Whether we're plugging away at the next issue, or trouble shooting a busted old bike in the garage, music is one of the things that motivates us when we wanna get out and ride, what inspires us to create on a daily basis and often times what keeps us from hurling the keyboard or the socket wrench across the room when things are not quite going as planned. This is just a small sample of some the tracks I am listening to daily while plugging away on Issue Ten. Check 'em out.
Remote Sales Professional (Commission)
You prefer a bag over your shoulder, a bike key and a cell phone as your office. You have the ability to work from anywhere, anytime you want, and you don’t want caps on your income.
They say if you really want to make money, you’ll forget the salary. Of course, working at Iron & Air is not just about money. But finding that extra income source doing something you love (like being around motorcycle & motorcycle culture all the time) isn’t a bad gig. We want you to keep what you’re currently doing to earn a living. You just happen to like the extra income and can make it happen. You may even relish telling your friends and family you work for Iron & Air. If so, read on...
We’re looking for that person who gets what we’re doing and wants to be a part of it. Chances are (we sure hope), you’ve subscribed, read the mag, met us at a show, follow us on social media and can’t get enough. You’ve got an unhealthy obsession with motorcycles (especially old ones). You ride, and you dream of riding when not riding.
You have an income doing something right now, but perhaps some flexibility to send emails and communicate during the day to add to your monthly take home. You’d relish the idea of working for a vintage motorcycle magazine. Let’s face it - if it worked out, you might like it better than your current day job.
You’re also a good connector. You know how to reach people. Communicate. Make things happen and talk motorcycles. And you’re self-sufficient. You prefer a bag over your shoulder, a bike key and a cell phone as your office. You have the ability to work from anywhere, anytime you want.
If this sounds like you - here’s the scoop: we want you on our team. We are looking for someone to work with us from any location in the world to help us begin to grow our revenues in a few areas. We’ve been super-focused on launching and building a great product. The foundation is there - now we are looking to beef up that revenue side of Iron & Air to ensure longevity for everyone. Let’s face it - loving motorcycles won’t pay the bills by themselves.
We need someone who can:
Work from anywhere (and relish it productively)
Find retail/boutique shops (check out our current list of stockists who carry Iron & Air Magazine) for our mag to make it on the shelf.
Identify, connect and start dialogue with potential advertisers and sponsors for the magazine (learn about our philosophy here)
Live the life of an Iron & Air’er - represent us well wherever you are.
Use CRM software to log activity and conversations, manage your contacts and funnel
Work with team on new sales & collab with us on big opportunities (i.e. a big brand like Triumph is interested in sponsoring)
Join us as needed on the road at moto events (we’ll cover costs)
To be considered, here’s what we ask: creatively tell us why you’re the one. Give us a snapshot of a day-in-the-life of you. Inspire us to say, “hell, yes - this is the right guy/gal”. Email your desire to join us to firstname.lastname@example.org. Can’t wait to find you.
