Growth Manager

“It is a blessing for a (woman) man to have a hand in determining their own fate.” – Blackbeard, the pirate

We’re looking for a self-starting, reliable contracted Growth Manager to join our growing team. This is an independent contractor, work from home opportunity and available to any qualified US-sales person. If you are an ambitious, relationship-driven individual who can develop new business as well as service existing clients, then this is a great position for you! You get out what you put in. The right person will be able to make this role their own – you are the architect of your growth strategy – using our effective sales tools / formula and supporting team.

As a part of our Extend team, you’ll also be a part of a very fast-paced and high-growth company.

Do you work best early in the mornings so you can be present when your kids get off the bus? Great. As long as we are servicing our clients in a timely, professional manner, the work schedule is for you to create. We work hard to have a culture that promotes balance because in order to be productive at work, you need to have fulfillment outside of work.
