  • Are you a highly skilled and customer-centric telemarketing or call center manager leader with a proven track record?
  • Looking for a company with real growth opportunity for you? Tired of jumping around?
  • How about a place where you’ll actually be recognized and rewarded for your contribution?
  • Want to work as part of an ALL-STAR team that’s really making a difference in the world?
  • Want a genuine virtual position where you can work from home as an EMPLOYEE and with GREAT BENEFITS?!

Look… I know you’re busy and we all know there are tons of boring and repetitive job postings lacking transparency out there, so I’ll just dive right on in here…

I have a RARE and EXCITING opportunity here for the right person…

My name is Ryan Withrow, and I am the Director of Telemarketing here at The Healthy Back Institute. We help people live without pain, naturally and safely. MILLIONS of people, literally all over the world. We do this via cutting-edge educational information, breakthrough products and by providing truly loving care and service to our customers. That’s right, we don’t want to hire anyone unless they have genuine care for our customers. Period.

Right now, we are growing FAST (we’ve grown every year since we started the company way back in 2003) and I need to build and strengthen my already strong team. That’s why I’m looking to fill this Telemarketing Manager position with someone that has true all-star talent.

7 Reasons You Might Love Working Here

#1 Stability

We've been in business since 2003 and have gone through many of the "rough patches" already. We are now a very strong and healthy company and aren't going anywhere for a very long time. In 2011 we were awarded a spot in the Inc 500/5000 coming in at #595. We are profitable, debt-free and have no outside investors... so we always do what we feel is right and this is a stable environoment.

#2. Opportunity

Unlike most companies that want to keep your pay as low as they can, we do the opposite! Our goal is to pay you as much as we possibly can because when we do, we know that means you are creating tremendous value for our customers and our business. We only want A-level superstars so we offer above average compensation as well as company and performance-based bonuses.

#3. Flexibility

Location doesn't matter to us. I don't care if you're working on the beach, your kitchen, or in your backyard. As long as you have fast, reliable internet, a quiet working space and you produce results, we are happy!

#4. Freedom

We believe that all people deserve to be free... free to make their own choices... free to create their own success... and we strive to create a work environment that not only allows but empowers you to be creative and take risks (well thought out of course). No company politics or popularity contests. We are a team of "producers"... people who are results oriented and believe that each person should be responsible for themselves.

#5. Great People

You'd be joining an existing team of superstars, many of whom have been with the company for years. There is virtually no “drama” within the team that most companies have. Everybody is fun, passionate, great at what they do, and willing to help out. If you're that kind of person – you'll fit in perfectly.

#6. Training and Education

We invest heavily in our knowledge and skills. As part of our team you'll have access to an enormous library of "how to" and "self improvement" books and courses and we also reimburse our team when they invest in continued education.

#7. Growth

We are growing at warp speed and have continued to increase profits year after year. This growth also means growth for you... in knowledge, skills, relationships and income.
