  • Work with product and engineering teams to ensure new features are SEO compliant and collaborate on product initiatives that directly support SEO growth.

  • Review and  communicating to stakeholders the impact of industry changes / algorithm updates and iterating plans where required

You’ll be perfect for this role if:

  • You have 6+ years of SEO experience with recent success in global, fast-paced and competitive environments

  • You have a deep knowledge of search engine algorithms, ranking strategies, and best practices

  • You believe in the power of data and its ability to help shape growth initiatives

  • Your comfortable presenting data and providing recommendations with confidence to senior level stakeholders, even when there is ambiguity involved

  • You understand the symbiotic nature of SEO best practices and a great user experience.

  • You have not only a strong passion for good design, but you can identify what’s great and speak out when it’s not

  • Intellectual curiosity combined with a knack for recognizing correlations, trends, and statistical irregularities
