Jobs with Search Warrant

Wanted: Technical SEO Specialist

Job Description

As a Technical SEO Specialist, you will lead the technical audits, analysis, and implementation of technical recommendations to help reduce our clients’ website page speed, uncover and remedy web crawling issues, analyze JavaScript rendering, and more. You’re keenly aware of the importance of a mobile-first approach to SEO. You enjoy creating slick reports and presenting your findings to business stakeholders, senior and executive leadership teams. Though you love digging deep into sites and issues on your own, you recognize that your findings must eventually be expressed in business terms to less technical humans.

As the ideal candidate, you have:
  • Experience building measurable results with organic search engine optimization
  • Advanced understanding of SEO principles and how to apply them
  • Solid writing and communication skills
  • A desire to become the data backbone of a dangerous digital marketing agency
  • An allergy to fluffy buzz words like synergy, dynamic, and engagement that don’t add up to business results
  • Experience in ROI-focused digital marketing
  • Willingness to work in a shared office, from home, or on the road
  • Abiding fear of being hacked that motivates you to keep your digital security game tight and to sleep with one eye open
  • Deep respect for the goals and budgets of clients that makes you more careful with their money than you are with your own
  • No need for close supervision though you welcome input and criticism
  • A drive to stay current with industry developments and participate in the SEO online community
  • A vibrant sense of humour

This is a technical gig so you have technical skills like these:
  • 2+ years relevant experience in SEO
  • Knowledge of Conversion Rate Optimization and UX principles and methodologies…it’s not about spiders, it’s about humans!
  • Proficiency in HTML/CSS/JS, with an emphasis on how they impact SEO performance
  • Understanding of how to reduce crawl budget, remedy site performance issues, and implement/troubleshoot structured data using a variety of tools like Moz, Screaming Frog, etc.
  • Extensive experience using keyword research tools (e.g. SEM Rush, SpyFu, Keyword Planner)
  • Background designing URL structures and navigation elements
  • Experience implementing and troubleshooting tags via GTM
  • Ability to analyze log files
  • Comfort providing detailed but easy-to-understand analysis and recommendations
  • Experience optimizing robots.txt files, implementing canonical tags, pagination pages, and identifying/ fixing redirect loops
  • Superior knowledge of search engine criteria/algorithms, best practices, trends and industry developments
  • A recent Google certification in Google Analytics
  • XLSX savvy
  • Identify gaps and opportunities and make recommendations and tracking improvements to lift organic rankings and traffic for client properties (mobile and desktop)
  • Manage keyword rank tracking and reporting
  • WordPress, Joomla, Drupal skills are nice to have

Your responsibilities would include:
  • Setting up, measuring, and reporting on organic search results over time using a variety of tools such as SEMRush, Console, and Klipfolio dashboard
  • Establishing, managing and reporting on Google Analytics and Google Console profiles in a thorough and standardized manner
  • Auditing existing Analytics profiles and SEO situations and reporting your findings in a clear, consistent, and business-oriented manner
  • Responding to peer and client requests in a timely and professional manner
  • Setting and communicating expectations for peers and clients
  • Maintaining a comprehensive net security posture

When, where and how?
