Desired skills and experience:
As our SEO Manager you’ll be pretty busy with lots to test and scale, so you’ll need to have 3-4 years of demonstrated expertise in:

You’ll have resources to help execute but you’ll be at the center of it all driving the strategy, analysis, execution and results.
Deep Data and Analytical Skills: From audits, to keywords, to site-speeds to competitive research, you’ll live in data and research and will be a master of spreadsheets to drive decisions and measure results. You are super organized and on top of your data. You also have outstanding competitive analysis skills, and access to the tools and techniques to keep us on top as we are up against some formidable competitors.
Technical and Functional SEO Content Design: You’ll be highly collaborative with our Marketing Copywriter and in that relationship, you’ll bring your outstanding expertise in content structure, length, keyword density, and overall content quality (after all people need to like and value the content) to ensure that our content not only ranks, but engages and educates.
Link Building: You’ll have a proven track record of successfully approaching and building relationships with other companies, brands and bloggers wrt pitching contributed content.
Collaboration: While you enjoy putting your head down to get things done you also enjoy the thrill of collaboration and contributing to a larger team goal of growth, happiness, and success.
What we’d like to see in our ideal candidate:
You are analytical, organized and resourceful and can turn your ideas quickly into implementations whether implementing on your own or with others. We move fast, but we are smart about it.
You are analytical and collaborative by nature and are driven by results
You are super organized but equally focused on getting things done.
You believe in collaboration and enjoy adding value and getting value by engaging with every team member and department that touches the customer experience.
You’re probably your own toughest critic and have an internal drive to win the SEO race, are relentless in your pursuit of hitting or exceeding growth targets and keep up to date with SEO and integrated marketing trends
You are absolutely passionate about the creative and visual artist community
