The Role:

As the Head of SEO you will be a dynamic seasoned SEO professional to join the team.  While they’ve established a world-class marketing team, they've yet to fully develop and implement a full-fledged SEO strategy.  As such, they’re looking for someone who is comfortable working in ambiguity, without much legacy, building the approach and strategy from scratch.  The right candidate will be highly analytical and will enjoy exploring creative approaches that result in the best possible return on investment. 

The role:

  • Ability to develop and manage the company SEO strategy from the ground up. 
  • Experience or strong desire to work in a fast-paced startup environment.  
  • Experience using keyword research and data analysis to prioritize your SEO strategy in a data-driven way. 
  • Ability to demonstrate and disseminate best SEO practices across the organization. 
  • Experience maintaining ongoing effective analysis and reporting of SEO performance.  
  • Natural tendency to operate with a testing mindset and approach - testing your efforts closely with data and embracing a fail-fast mentality.    
  • At least 8 years experience of SEO

The following additional experience is strongly desired:

  • Experience using SEO tools (i.e. Google Webmaster Tools, Omniture, BrightEdge, ScreamingFrog, Botify, Etc.) 
  • Experience in with technical SEO concepts (i.e. CSS, HTML, JavaScript, XML Sitemaps, structured data, information architecture).
