Our client is looking for a detail-oriented, data-loving SEO Specialist to add to our growing team. As a Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Specialist, you will develop and implement marketing strategies for clients, while monitoring and reporting results using a variety of platforms.

What you’ll do

While you won’t be required to write code, you must have a basic understanding of technical SEO involving HTML, CSS, JavaScript & PHP. You will have access to a team of developers for implementation.

We’re looking for someone who is comfortable taking a strategy and running with it. You’ll work independently for blocks of time, but feel confident collaborating with our marketing team to make recommendations and report on results.

  • A team player who is interested in sharing knowledge with other colleagues and collaborating on integrated projects.
  • Must be able to explain technical information to those who have mixed levels of ability and technical understanding.
  • Demonstrated willingness to learn and upgrade skills continuously. You like to consider yourself a problem-solver.
  • An understanding of how Google works and the ability to think big-picture, predicting changes and adapting in real-time to major algorithm updates.
  • Proven ability to create original thoughts and measure KPIs. We run off new ideas and data-driven results.
