As a Site Auditor, you’re the kind of person who is able to see the system, identify the parts that make it work, and target the ones that can be improved. On top of a strong attention to detail, you also have a desire to help people and do work that makes a difference. You get excited when even the smallest improvement can help a publisher’s dream come true as you see clients as people first. The thought of helping families earn enough money for parents to stay home with their kids or pay off debts would be extremely rewarding to you.
We are looking for someone with a solid history of actualized self-led business goals, comfort in a high-productivity virtual environment, doing extremely repetitive tasks while collaborating well with a virtual team, and who is driven by hitting deadlines.

One of the primary goals of an auditor is to initiate conversations with our publishers who may not contact us asking for help. Auditors have an important task in maintaining the relationship factor that AdThrive has with its partners.

Site Auditors use the same collection of tools & processes over and over to troubleshoot an array of different potential issues.
This is a job with a never-ending list of sites to check, and the ideal candidate will look forward to logging in every day and grinding through a list of 20 sites to check and email, logging off and doing the same thing again tomorrow.
