  • Description


    Hello my name is Ben, I have a real estate company in Taiwan for about 5 years, with three employees.

    Not far from Taipei is a place called Waiao. It has an amazing beach and many things to do around.

    The place is very small: 8 double bunk beds, 5 longboards 4 body boards. Its 100m away from the beach.

    We are usually full during week ends but mostly empty during the week. t would be nice to find a way to get more customers dung the week.

    I stay there three days per week on average with my border collie Chewkie who is one year old.

    Longer term position could open, you will get health insurance through the company.


    Starting in June, we need someone who can work on web marketing:
    -Messaging landlords and tenants, verifying the information they provide and matching tenants and landlords
    -Writing blog posts / improving SEO on our website
    No experience is required, is you know how to use a computer then its good enough!

    You will get:
    -Desk and computer,
    -Housing in a dorm with washing machine, internet, shower, linen, ...
    -Free use of surfboards, (weather is good most days to surf, we can teach you, the current workawayer could stand after two days!)
    -Free use of the scooter/car when available,
    -Food x2 per day and coffee (we can accommodate vegans and vegetarians),
    -Free use of vacant rooms in Taipei when available,
    -Occasional beer :D

    -5 days per week, 4 hours per day
