Now Hiring: Affiliate Manager

Location: Work From Your Home for our All-Remote Company (USA only)

Do you have experience recruiting affiliates and familiarity managing an affiliate program? Have you worked in the B2B space? Does relationship building come naturally to you?  

If so, we’d like you to learn about Files.com!

About Files.com

Files.com is the new name for BrickFTP, a cloud storage service that has existed since 2009 and has over 1,700 paying business customers.

Our company consists of USA-based remote employees who work from home.

Our products and services are used by over 2,000 enterprises and SMBs, including Target, Canonical, UPS, Leica, DirecTV, GoPro, Marriott, and more.

We’re Bootstrapped, Profitable, and Growing

Our success comes from building a great service that solves problems for our customers, and our growth comes from expanding and improving our products as quickly as we can.

We believe that great products can only be built by great people. So we’re on a quest to find the smartest, most creative, and most motivated people, and create an environment in which they thrive.

We Are A Remote Company

You will work from home and have some flexibility to choose your working hours, allowing you to make time for family, recreation, vacations, or anything that is important to you.

You’ll take off 11 company-wide holidays per year as well as 20 days of PTO for vacations. You’ll have the time to take longer vacations and have fun.

Every quarter, you’ll travel to an in-person meeting with the entire team to meet and work together face to face. These meetings are in cities that are fun to visit. In the last few years, we’ve been to Austin, Orlando, New Orleans, San Diego, Las Vegas, and New York City.

We think that these in-person meetings are vital to the success of a remote team.

We are looking for a full-time Affiliate Manager to grow Files.com. You will be expected to manage and build our affiliate partners, relationships, and program. While you will be surrounded by a great team, you are expected to a one-person force of nature with affiliates. This role will not be managing channel partners and resellers, as that is already covered by our Sales Team.

About the Role

In this role you will be asked to:

  • Manage a multi-million dollar affiliate program.

  • Tap into your experience to quickly grow Files.com’s list of affiliates.

  • Collaborate with senior leadership to craft internal strategy and structure for the affiliate program.

This position is considered critically important at Files.com and reports directly to our CEO.

We’re looking for people who match these qualifications:

  • 8 years of experience growing and managing an affiliate program.

  • Experience owning a portfolio of key affiliate accounts.

  • Strong knowledge of performance marketing techniques.

  • Proven track record of identifying and recruiting new affiliates that are capable of driving volume.

  • Ability to train affiliates to maximize their sales.

  • Previous participation in affiliate seminars and events.

  • B2B experience a must, with SaaS experience preferred.  

Our Core Beliefs

Here are just some of our Core Beliefs:

We believe that the best Engineers tend to be polyglots with a wide variety of programming language experience. We don’t hire for specific programming language skills, but rather look for engineers who are fluent in several programming languages. We want our staff to be adaptable and ready to evolve to what’s next.

We believe in using the right tool for the job. Our core applications are built in Ruby, JavaScript, Java, C++, and PHP. We use Rails, React, Chef, Qt, Jenkins, Github, Honeybadger, CircleCI, Maven, AWS, MySQL, Redis, Memcached, Haml, Sass, and many other exciting open source systems. We don’t want to get stuck in the trap of using a language or a tool just because “that’s how it’s done around here.”

We believe that open-source only works if companies give back. If you work on any open-source projects during the course of your work at Files.com, you are encouraged to submit your improvements as a pull request back to the upstream project. And if you build something from scratch while working here that’s generic and not related to our core products, we want you to release that on GitHub too. We’ll also pay your travel costs to any conference where you can get a speaking gig.

We believe in building products that we actually use ourselves. We are our own toughest critics and we put all of our products through their paces every day.

Files.com offers industry-leading salaries based on experience combined with unparalleled flexibility and other benefits to secure top talent.

You’ll take off 11 company-wide holidays per year as well as 20 days of PTO for vacations. Go have fun. Don’t work all the time.

We will provide you a laptop and a $1,000 signing bonus to purchase a new monitor, desk, or anything else that would help build or refresh your home office.

We’ll update your salary annually based on your performance, as reviewed by your peers.

We fully pay base plan health insurance premiums (exact plan details depend on your state of residence), and we’ll pick up the tab for 75% of your spouse or dependents if they wish to join your chosen plan. We want your family to be healthy.
