Classification Specialist- Part Time, Remote POSTED 7/16/21

Job Description/Responsibilities/Requirements

Do you have a passion for classification?  Do you love to hunt down the correct ECCN or USML category for a product, especially one you’ve never seen before?  What about HTS codes?  Can you fly through the chapters and sections until you arrive at the correct number (to the 10th digit, of course, not just the sixth)?  Do friends and family stand in awe of your spreadsheet skills?

If you’re one of the few who can honestly answer “yes” to these questions, then we want to talk to you!  Export Solutions has immediate needs for a Classification Specialist who can “wow” us (and our clients) with your accuracy, speed and expertise.  We’re looking not just for someone who knows the regulations, but that special person who has the skill and tenacity to correctly classify thousands of parts. 

Essential Duties and Responsibilities Include:

  • Proven ability to find the correct HTS codes and USML/ECCN for items, with limited information to start.
  • Proven experience researching and documenting rationale for each part classified.
  • Must be a wizard at working with Excel spreadsheets
  • That unique ability to make Google work for you – extracting all the data you need by knowing how (and where) to search.
  • Attend weekly check-in meetings with clients to update on progress and troubleshoot those few, tricky parts that have eluded you so far.
  • This is part-time, work from home contract position

If you are interested in this position, be prepared to complete a sample exercise of random parts, to include your rationale and how much time you spent on each classification.  Are you up for that challenge?

Required Qualifications:

  • Minimum five (5) years prior experience in a trade compliance role
  • Comprehensive knowledge of EAR, ITAR, and other import/export regulations
  • Thorough understanding of HTS and Schedule B assignments
  • Skilled in import and export documentation review
