Senior Technical SEO Specialist

The Senior Technical SEO Specialist supports the SEO director and works directly with clients to implement the strategic digital marketing programs. Experience with technical SEO execution, back-end web development and client communication is required. Experience working with other digital marketing channels, in particular SEM, preferred.

What does this mean? You relish the opportunity to conduct SEO audits and examine the foundation of a website. You enjoy the nitty gritty of tracking all desired metrics within a site and feel comfortable around Google Tag Manager (GTM). Importantly, you like rolling up your sleeves and implementing your findings (mainly, but not limited to WordPress and Shopify sites), along with explaining all aspects of SEO in laymen’s terms with clients (of all levels of digital marketing).

Desire to join a growing digital marketing agency and take on an array of projects (at various levels of complexity) is a must. This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced SEO guru to further develop and grow their skills in all facets of SEO and digital marketing. The role primarily supports the SEO director, but has ample opportunity (and need) to grow and explore other facets of the digital marketing world. The role requires someone with a jack of all trades mentality and offers opportunities for advancement based on interest, aptitude and proficiency.
