Jobs at Back2Front
Work from home, part time, on contract
Back2Front is one of the few web site management companies successfully in business for more than a few years. We attribute our success to the care and attention we provide to each of our clients and our high standards for quality and responsiveness.
Providing excellence requires top-notch team members. If you get satisfaction from a job well done, and sloppiness is just not in your vocabulary, then you could have what it takes to be a part of our team and we want to hear from you!
- You will be providing service as an independent contractor, on your own schedule, with your own equipment (broadband Internet connection, work-ready computer, phone). You will be invoicing Back2Front for hours worked and marketing expenses (if applicable) twice a month (1st and 16th).
- Number of hours worked depends on your availability, skill-set range, available work, and perhaps most importantly: your performance. High quality, high performance individuals work as much (or as little) as they want to.
- Starting rate through training and probation period is $12/hour. The rate will increase commensurate with performance.
- Please note, we are currently only accepting applicants in the Greater Toronto Area.

"I have enjoyed working with Back2Front, much more than on my own. I appreciate the flexibility and the variety of work. When I want to be challenged and can spend the time, the opportunity is there. I find when we have our meetings and training days, I am both inspired to do more and enjoy the teamwork atmosphere and the source of knowledge within the team. There doesn't seem to be the politics you get in large corporations and we can be productive and get along and use each other's strengths for the good of the service we provide our clients. I am impressed with the brilliance and business savy you and Candace have put into the company and its business model in an industry that is highly competitive and difficult to make its mark. But with your continued focus of marketing the company, you have definitely put Back2Front on the map!"
