SEO Specialist - Remote

 

Posted: 07/08/2021

We are a remote-first workforce because we Care Deeply about hiring the best talent and supporting the wellbeing of our people.  

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we leaned into the dual challenges of keeping our people safe and our business healthy. Shifting to work from home taught us how resilient, productive, and successful we are as remote workers. 

Now we actively pursue remote hiring, onboarding, and employment. We are hiring remote positions in AL, AZ, CA, CO, FL, ID, IL, MN, MO, NC, NY, OR, TN, TX, UT, VA, WA, and WI.

Who We’re Looking For – SEO Specialist (Remote)

If you’re coming off a phenomenal 2-3 years tackling SEO for a company or agency and are ready to take on more sophisticated organic search challenges this is the role for you.

Clearlink has deep roots in search engine optimization. With a company-wide mission to “transform the way the world’s leading brands find, acquire, and support their customers while improving the overall customer experience” meeting our target audiences via organic search is imperative.

From our C-level down you will be hard-pressed to find a person throughout the company that doesn’t both value and have a strong understanding of SEO. And because of that, we know we can’t accomplish our goals with our SEO Specialists.

To get your work done you will spend the majority of your time in analysis and individual execution while also coordinating closely with your core marketing team consisting of individuals passionate about content strategy, outreach, design, copywriting, paid search, and project management.

What We’re Looking For

Our SEO Specialists take proactive ownership of the SEO goals and performance of the websites they’re assigned, building ongoing strategies and plans to grow targeted organic traffic, all while coordinating to ensure the work accomplished meets goals and forecasts set.

What You Need

  • 2-3 years of experience
  • You’re a data junkie: You know your way around an Excel spreadsheet and take advantage of SEO tools like OSE, Majestic, SEMRush, Screaming Frog, Ahrefs and many more every day. (You probably have an absurd amount of browser add-ons too.)
  • You’re a natural problem solver: You’re not afraid to take on high-competition keywords because you know how to rank well for just about anything (and you’ve got a winning track record to prove it). You’re always on top of the latest search trends and are willing to tackle any SEO challenge in any industry.
  • You work well with other marketers: You can “speak the language” of designers, developers, and content marketers to get SEO results. But you also enjoy teaming up with an eclectic group of marketers and value the relationships you have at work.
