The LeadGenius TeamImage result for horizontal divider line png


What is LeadGenius?

We're a virtual work platform that aims to bring work to highly skilled people around the world. We're based in Berkeley, CA and work with people in over 70 countries.

But what does that really mean?

Basically, we match talented people with work that needs to be done. Companies give us work they need completed, and we match them with people around the world with the skills.

Is this a scam?

No! We're here to connect companies with the global workforce online, and we will never ask for money from you. We want to pay you for work that you've done within our platform. You can check us out in the news

More importantly, how do I get paid?

We pay via Paypal or Payoneer every 2 weeks (every other Tuesday PST at noon to be precise!)


You sign up and connect your bank account.


You sign up for one of two options: a global bank transfer that connects to your bank or for a debit card that autofills with your payment.

How do I apply?

Just enter your information in the left pane and click 'Continue'. It's as easy as that!

What should my background be?

All of our team members have college degrees or are working on acquiring a college degree. You should make sure to list all relevant skills and work history on your resume to give us an overview of who you are. Please include any work experience, including (but not limited to!) working for a family business, administrative tasks, or tutoring.

What are the things I need to know and need to prepare before I apply?

  • Have an updated resume on hand, including demographic information, educational background and work experience.
  • You need to have at least 5 mbps internet connection speed. You’ll be asked to run a speedtest in your application. Be sure that you are in a computer (and not mobile phone), and in the place you intend to use for working with LeadGenius.
  • 6GB PC/Laptop RAM capacity

What is the process to apply like?

  • Fill out the necessary information in the left side of this window. Once you’ve created a candidate account, you will be asked to complete the proofreading assessment. You will be also asked to fill out some information about your background. Please fill out the entire application. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed or will be declined.
  • Our hiring team reviews the applications (please do your best!) and contacts those who are fit for the role. You will be notified of the result of your application within 2-3 weeks.
  • If you get invited to move on, the next step is completing a skill assessment test. It will take a maximum of 35 minutes to complete this phase. Upon finishing it, you’ll be notified of the result within the next 5 days.
  • The next step is video interview. You will be asked a few questions to help us to get to know you more.
  • Once you pass the interview, you’re now ready to fill out some paperworks!
  • Once you’ve sent back the paperwork, you will receive a welcoming email with details about completing the orientation and getting started with LeadGenius, getting set up and things you need to complete prior to your live training session.
  • You will attend a training (Bootcamp). During this period, you will be introduced to projects and tools that will help you get your work done.
  • Once you pass Bootcamp, you will be placed on a 4-week probation period. This time you will get the chance to work on client projects.
  • The 4-week probation is trial period, to see if we’re a good fit for you and if you’re a good fit for us!
  • Once you pass the 4-week probation period, you will then undergo the 90-day trial period, if you meet the requirements (listed in the handbook), you will receive a 8% increase in hourly pay.

How do I choose projects?

Our Project Managers announce any available projects that you can work on in our dedicated team rooms. You will be required to undergo training before being allowed to work on any of the projects. When you join a project, you are expected to stay on it for at least 30 days before leaving. This gives you a chance to get to know the project and try it out.

How many hours do I need to work?

You have to be available at least 20 hours per week.

How do I know if I'm doing well?

The managers will inform you of your performance and we have a dedicated system where you will find if your performance is up to the mark and if you’re meeting your goals. You will have the opportunity to improve if you have not done well on a project, but there is a limit. If you repeatedly show mistakes and poor performance, you will be removed from the platform.

What are the teams like?

You will be placed on a team based on the time frame that you’re working in, and there will be a manager online during that time. They will be your direct supervisor, and are there to answer any questions and set up your projects. The teams vary in size, but you should get to know your fellow teammates!

Where do we work?

We have a dashboard that you will work in.
