We are a B2B software as a service tool that helps people schedule content on social media.

We are looking for someone to lead our more specialised SEO efforts internally, on a full or part time (at least 2 days a week) basis, with an initial 3-month contract.

What we're looking for

We are looking for someone who:

  • Lives their day inside Ahrefs/SEMrush/Clearscope etc

  • Loves to take a very technical and metrics-focussed approach to SEO

  • Wants to take on a challenge, with competitive keywords

  • Can lead the efforts internally from strategy to execution.

  • Has experience in the B2B SaaS space, ideally in a marketing focussed tool.

  • We would like to find someone who is willing to get their hands dirty and can manage the SEO process end-to-end so that you can keep the feedback loops fast.

  • When/if you run out of time to DIY, we can talk about adding extra people or contractors to be able to free up your time, but for us it's important that you aren't afraid to get your hands dirty and that you have recent experience "doing the work", not just setting strategy.

  • You will need to have at least 2-3 hours overlap in working hours (8am-6pm) of Melbourne, Australia time, but otherwise our team is fully remote distributed around the world.

What you'll work on

  • Your first 1-2 weeks will be focussed on auditing our existing activities and identifying what the quick wins might be for the best keywords to generate revenue.

  • Then you'll work on implementing your thoughts alongside our team, with a focus on a keyword list of 10-20 high quality and high intent keywords you have researched that you think will create the best ROI for us.

  • You'll regularly report on progress as we climb up the SERPs, and likely contribute to various other campaigns and projects our team works on.

Salary guide

We're pricing this role at US$55-60k per annum (pro-rata if you work part time) – we also have a profit share program, paid time off and more.

Requirements

To apply

Send us a (short) cover letter along with your CV or LinkedIn, and include some detail about the following questions.

1. What companies have you worked with that are similar to us?

2. How much of your work is normally split between strategy and 'getting it done'?

3. What are your favourite SEO tools that you use frequently?

    • Daily title audit to ensure article titles are properly optimized

    • Adding keywords to tracking tools weekly, tagging appropriately

    • Internal & External Link Building

    • Thin Content clean-up / maintenance

    • Content no-indexing, removal, and redirects
