Tech Operations Director Who Loves Homesteading & Permaculture

The Grow Network is the online home of a global network of people who
are producing their own food and medicine. "Home Grown Food On Every
Table" is our catalyzing statement. The purpose of the organization is
to stop the destruction of the Earth. We offer information via our
online blog, information products (physical and digital), and a
membership area.

Our company culture is of a team of rugged adventurers out to make a difference in the world. We are a distributed company but the majority of us are in Central Texas.  Those with a life-attitude of being on an expedition in the back-country will like working in this environment. This is a full-time work from home position where you determine your own hours and have your own equipment.  The ideal candidate for this position lives within 45 miles of Red Rock, TX because we like to get together to party sometimes (but close proximity is not a requirement)..

We need a technical operations person who can help us
move from our current small business platform to an enterprise level
operation. This position requires with a lot of web skills / internet
marketing operations experience. The Network is currently composed of
about 120,000 members and we are scaling up our systems to handle
2 million.

move our marketing campaigns/workflows from our existing platform on
Infusionsoft to the new one at MaroPost.
