Head of SEO
The successful candidate:
The successful candidate will have several years’ experience working in technical SEO, in an agency or client-side role.
The candidate will demonstrate a comprehensive knowledge of organic search engine optimisation, with considerable experience consulting on enterprise-level technical SEO projects. The successful candidate will undertake website audits, keyword research and backlink analyses as a core part of their role, and must be comfortable to deliver exemplary documentation ahead of deadlines using a suite of industry-leading software and tools.
The digital landscape is always evolving, so it is imperative the successful candidate keeps their SEO knowledge up-to-date. They will, for example, demonstrate understanding of opportunities for international SEO, mobile optimisation, and conversational search. Moreover, RocketMill aspires to place data at the heart of all we do, so you must hold Google Analytics IQ certification, and show experience of using SEO analytical tools.
The ideal candidate will recognise the pivotal role user experience plays in modern organic visibility. Experience developing large-scale information architecture is highly desirable, while hands-on experience of supporting migrations (platform and protocol) is essential.
We are a small team, so the most important requirement of all is to get stuck in and make your mark – to benefit your clients, agency, and career.
The interview process
We’ll kick off with a virtual coffee to assess your suitability for the role.
If we think you’re a good fit, we’ll invite you for an interview at our office or offer one virtually (as appropriate).
If we like what you’ve got to say, the final stage is a second interview with other senior members of our team with a competency test.
