Eager to join a team of high-performing, yet humble integrative thinkers that simply get things done?
Excited to be a part a rapidly growing $250 billion+ industry while measurable improving people’s lives?
If so, and you’re a kick-butt, full-stack web developer with an incessant drive towards excellence an unquenchable curiosity, and a get-it-done now mentality, please read on to as we’d love to talk.
Who We Are:
We, Natural Health Sherpa, create simple-to-use products that optimize your metabolism. That allows you to enjoy more energy, feel great and enjoy life. That’s important, because, frustratingly, the world is setup encourage the opposite: low energy, sickness and stress.
We're an 8-figure company that's been profitable since our founding in 2010. Over the last 8 years, we’ve developed a deep portfolio of products ranging exercise and nutrition programs to nutraceuticals and functional foods. And now we’re entering an exciting new growth phase whereby we’re re-branding around the main concept all of our products have evolved around: Metabolic Living.
As part of that re-branding, we’re porting our outdated website at www.naturalhealthsherpa.com to our modernized content platform we’re building at www.metabolicliving.com and rolling our a state-of-the-art mobile app. As part of this migration, we have a number of exciting development projects in the works, including re-architecting our e-commerce and analytics system.
We are a very marketing-driven organization and spend heavily on Google Ads and Facebook, which is why we have a heavy systems-focus on performance, analytics and split testing. We build core functionality ourselves as it gives us a competitive edge. To that end, our technology team’s mission is to create a highly scalable, near zero down-time set of marketing-driven systems.
We're riding the $250+ billion annual tidal wave of demand for natural health products. And we’re positioning our new brand to be right on top of that wave. It is an extremely exciting time for us now.
Our nutrition courses and exercise programs are designed to deliver the most results in the least time. For example, our exercise videos deliver the same or better benefits in just 15 minutes, 3 times a week than do traditional exercise programs that require 60 minutes, 5 times a week. Yes, really.
You can see an example of one of our exercise products at http://www.metabolicrenewal.com as our e-commerce happens on product-specific websites for now. All e-commerce will happen on http://www.metabolicliving.com as part of the re-branding.
We also formulate state-of-the-art nutritional supplements and functional foods that fuel your metabolism to generate the energy you need to consistently perform at your peak. For example, instead of taking weeks to notice a difference, it takes just days to feel better.
We practice what we preach: our company is designed so everyone on our team both enjoys their work challenges while having plenty of time to do what they most in their life. We recruit only high-performing, humble people who produce in fast cycles, hold themselves accountable and have fun.
Who We Need:
We’re scouring the U.S. for a full-time, consumer-oriented full-stack web developer. It is a remote/work-at-home position with a very flexible work/vacation schedule. Lifestyle is hugely important to our company given what we do.
The ideal person is extremely self-motivated, loves to grind out work consistently and is comfortable being hands-on in all facets of web engineering from the browser-to-the-code-to-the-server.
This opportunity is suited only for a high-performing full-stack developer with an integrative mindset and proven ability to get things done cleanly and on time.
“Consumer-oriented” simply means developer is very focused on the end-user, with deep experience working on systems that support marketing efforts, like building funnels, e-commerce, analytics, subscriptions, payment processing, API integrations, etc.
You will work hand-in-hand with our existing CTO to optimize, support and manage our entire web infrastructure. You and a small, but highly efficient team of other developers, will form our core development team, have the ability to cover for each other as vacation and other needs arise, but also to work synergistically on separate projects.
Just as we obsess about creating healthy living products that get the most results in the least time, we’re looking for someone equally obsessed about doing the same thing with beautiful, efficient code.
While your coding skills are important, it's how fast you process information, how quickly (and accurately) you can cycle through work and how well you work with the rest of our team that's crucial. To that end, communication is key to this role, and so is the ability to remain self-motivated while working on tasks that can be repetitive. And the ability to turn a business conversation into an actionable set of dev tasks that you can jump on immediately is crucial.
Finally, and most importantly, we’re looking for someone who can collaborate in real-time with the company’s founder, who manages our marketing and advertising. This can require real-time communication throughout the day based on our heavy advertising spend (can reach $50k / day). Moreover, because much of this advertising happens on the weekend, being available for mission-critical support should any emergencies appear is crucial.
