We are looking for a Senior SEO Lead

We’re looking for a talented people leader with deep knowledge of SEO to manage and grow our SEO team.

Your team is strategically responsible for all three facets of SEO: on-page, off-page, and technical. On-page and technical SEO are shared responsibilities with our content and web development teams. Your team will take the lead in creating roadmaps, driving results, and reporting on progress.

Technical SEO – How well can search engine spiders crawl your site and index your content?

Off-page SEO – How are your inbound links from other websites? Do you have natural links from authoritative and relevant websites?

On-page SEO – How well is your site content optimized for relevant keywords? How does it provide the user experience?

Responsibilities

This role will contribute heavily to our content creation and broader marketing strategies. This is an excellent opportunity to join a rapidly growing industry with talented professionals.

Specifically, you will:

  • Be the people leader for our current SEO team of four.
  • Define what your team needs and grow your team to meet our core business objectives.
  • Drastically grow our organic search presence. Within 12 months, double our organic traffic and sales.
  • Define additional content, sales, and marketing KPIs and deliver results.
  • Work with our existing team to strengthen our strategy for improving organic search rankings to maximize sales and positive brand exposure.
    • We’re passionate about being thought leaders in our industry, so not all pages will be designed to make sales, but should contribute to our overall branding.
  • Keep yourself and your team sharp through the continuous learning and application of industry best practices. SEO changes fast – you’ll be in charge of making sure we change with it.
    • Disseminate this information to our team of writers, developers, and content strategists.
  • Deliver systems that ensure all relevant content is optimized for SEO in conjunction with our Senior Content Manager and Blog Manager.
  • Prioritize, delegate, and give clear goals and objectives to your team.
  • Ensure transparent and efficient reporting procedures for senior management,m including the Head of Marketing and business owners.

Previously this team has been overseen directly by the Head of Marketing. As the team is growing rapidly, it’s time to specialize this function even further and allow us to scale efficiently.
