Ideal candidate

We are looking for an experienced candidate who has broad and deep experience within SEO. You should have a deep understanding of the digital marketing ecosystem, and hands-on experience of an additional digital marketing platform is also advantageous for this position.

Ideally you will already have experience in writing blogs for online publications as well as speaking at industry events.
