    Hi John,

    “We want to hire one full-time (approx 40 hours per week) or two part-time representatives.” That would be two people doing 20 hours each.

    You must be “able to work during office hours in CST (that’s GMT -5 hours)”

    “Salary is negotiable depending on hours worked, experience etc.”

  3. How soon are we likely to be told the status of the positions? The link has been removed from your website. Is that a sign? I have sent my application and I am also just as anxious. Thanks.

    StatCounter Team Response:

    Hi Femi,

    We have received over 100 résumés so far but we are still open to new applications. (Your application has been received – thanks!)

    We will start going through the applicants today and may contact some people requesting more information.

    Please note that we will also have to take people on for a “trial period” – so that we can find out if the position suits them and if they are a good match for StatCounter. This means that it may be a number of weeks before the positions are permanently filled.

    Thanks & good luck!
