Partnership Opportunity in an Established eCommerce Business at Droneoptix

go back to Co-Founder Roles
  • Guildford
  • fulltime
  • ₤24000 - ₤35000 per year

We have an exciting opportunity for a technically minded and entrepreneurial individual to run a small ecommerce business. We need someone to take over the operations of the business, which currently has growing monthly revenues of £16,000 - £20,000 per month. You will have a large degree of control over the operations of the company as the founder and current owner has stepped back from a management position.

After a year you will be given equity alongside a salary, building up to around 50% share after 3 years. During the first year there will be a profit share arrangement.

The first few weeks will be a training period, which will be undertaken from our Guildford location. After this you can work from anywhere in the UK, although you would ideally be situated within 90 minutes of Guildford.


Responsibilities currently include:

  • Managing our eBay listings

  • Sourcing new products lines to stock

  • Purchasing second hand stock

  • Stripping down electronics

  • Managing our employees (in addition to the employee who you will replace we have one virtual assistant and one product lister/technician)

  • Processing orders for dispatch (1-2 hours per day)

  • Sorting incoming stock

  • Improving sales through marketing, SEO etc.

  • Improving our Wordpress website

  • Answering difficult customer queries

  • Communicating with our bookkeeper and accountant

  • Improving the efficiency of our processes


The ideal candidate must have the following skills:

  • Ability to strip down and rebuild drones as well as quickly identify components

  • Good commercial awareness

  • Extremely computer literate

  • Highly self motivated


No ecommerce experience is required, but you must be bright and a quick learner.


Benefits include:

  • Part ownership of the company

  • Be your own boss

  • Flexible salary including a significant profit share if desired

  • Warehouse will be rented in a location convenient to you (if you have a large garage/room we could rent it off you as our premises)

  • Flexible hours (average of 40 hours per week is required. You must be at the warehouse once per day to ship the items, but the rest of your timings can be flexible)

  • Long holidays (if desired)

  • Work half from home (if desired)


Note: The salary is £24,000 and there will be a decent profit share on top of this. However this can be negotiated if you are less interested in the future equity opportunity.
