Director of Operations Wanted - REMOTE


compensation: $30/hr
employment type: contract
job title: Director of Operations
Director of Operations for Raw Land Real Estate Company

I’m looking for someone who is smart, organized, and trustworthy to be our Director of Operations for our real estate company. We specialize in raw land. As clearly as possible, we are looking for a systems minded perfectionist who is extraordinarily detail-oriented.

PLEASE NOTE: This is not an entry-level assistant position. You MUST have at least 2+ years experience in an operations role within a real estate company.


This is a fast-paced, extremely detail-oriented and high-pressure role. Expect to get 30+ messages/day from our customers, many of which include tasks that must be done that day.

I’m looking for someone with extreme attention to detail who enjoys negotiating deals, setting up systems, and is fun to work with. If you’re looking for a slower role with 9-5 hours, this is NOT the role for you.

But if you have extensive experience operating a real estate company, this position will be very challenging and extremely rewarding.

This is a part-time role, starting between 15-30 hours per week. Depending on how we work together, this will increase to a full time salaried role. We communicate via email, chat, and phone.

It’s also remote, so you can work anywhere in the United States / during Chicago business hours. We communicate via email, chat, and phone.
