SEO Team Lead

San Diego

We pride ourselves on innovation; on standing out among the rest and enabling our clients do to the same. We do this by offering best in class brand strategy, backed by data, and driven through a variety of interactive tools that fuel our passion for the digital space.

You, the Team Lead we’ve been dreaming about, will level us up even further. Your ideas are unconventional, fresh, and smart. Your passion for people and ‘team’ is unprecedented. You can create and execute strategy with the best of them, but you’re a ‘do-er,’ and you’ll roll up your sleeves in an instant to show a member of your team how it’s done. Nothing is more fun than telling a good story, so creating a narrative to gain client buy-in is something you could do in your sleep. You engage with C-level executives with ease. Answering tactical search-related questions is cool, but you love opportunities to talk high level strategy; you’re not a show off, but you find it fun to illustrate how search has a much broader business impact than just rankings. You’re stoked about the opportunity to influence executives, clients, and certainly, your team. You’re addicted to growth and development and it shows in your ability to create success for the people that surround you.
