Junior SEO Consultant

Knucklepuck is searching for an ambitious, motivated individual to join our rapidly growing team of digital-first marketers as a full-time Junior SEO Consultant.

About Knucklepuck

We are a digital marketing agency dedicated to driving sustainable, bottom-line growth for our clients. To accomplish these goals, we become an extension of our clients’ marketing teams to create extraordinary web experiences. Our team is comprised of top-notch marketers specializing in content production, search engine optimization, paid media advertising, and web development. We mirror our own industry — quick, quirky, innovate, creative, growing explosively and born of the digital revolution. Our clients span industries from e-commerce to local businesses to Fortune 500 companies.

We are seeking a self-starter who is passionate about driving organic growth through search. In exchange for your insatiable curiosity and SEO chops, we offer the opportunity to make an impact growing our own business and our clients’ businesses, to develop technical skills, and to reap the rewards of a job well done. Our team is well suited to grit hustlers who value a hard day’s work, the comforts of a beanbag chair and a quality pun.

About the Position

The Junior SEO Consultant will provide support for Knucklepuck’s SEO clients. The Junior SEO Consultant will report to the Director of Marketing but will also take direction from the lead Project Manager for each of their 3-6 assigned accounts.

Although extensive training will be provided, the Junior SEO Consultant must be independent, self-motivated, and able to interact directly with clients in a professional manner. The Junior SEO Consultant must be able to take direction and cultivate strong professional relationships both externally (with clients, experts, sources, etc.) and internally (with colleagues across departments at all levels within the company).  We are looking for a true team player who will be called upon to execute search engine optimization strategies and work internally to coordinate with members of our SEO, Paid Media, Content and Web Development teams.

To succeed in this position, you must have:

  • Creative, problem-solving and strategic thinking skills and an ability to execute tactical action items
  • Quick learning tendencies and a thirst for knowledge that will facilitate your immediate contribution to a rapidly growing agency
  • A track record of experiences demonstrating an action-oriented personality
  • Excellent organizational skills, attention to detail and ability to independently manage tasks to meet deadlines in a fast-paced and results-oriented culture
  • The ability to communicate well verbally and in writing to foster client relationships
  • A data-driven mentality and analytical mindset that will inform strategy
  • Working familiarity with Google Docs, Google Sheets and Google Drive (as well as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint)
  • Passion! Knucklepuck thrives on growth from within. This role will serve an integral part of our SEO team and be afforded significant growth opportunities across the organization

As you receive sufficient training in SEO, your primary responsibilities will include:

  • Use an arsenal of on-page, off-page, tech and outreach techniques to perform search engine optimization, including competitive research
  • Perform ongoing keyword research to execute on-page strategies, such as writing content growth opportunity outlines, that support a consistent and consolidated content theme
  • Leverage a combination of tools and manual research to perform competitive research identifying opportunities for pursuing search engine optimization strategies based upon those factors that the search engines are valuing for target queries
  • Write optimized meta data and on-page content that contains target keywords, improves clickthrough rates, and enhances user experience
  • Push SEO updates live on client content platforms such as Wordpress
  • Contribute to internal team discussions, including brainstorms and lectures
  • Track client analytics and creating reports to inform clients of their progress
  • Support SEO Consultants with client tasks including client meetings and assignments. This is a client-facing role

It would be great if you have:

  • A track record of leadership roles and experiences
  • Digital agency experience
  • Experience with WordPress and/or website development
  • Familiarity with web analytics (e.g. Google Analytics) and opportunity analysis tools such as Ahrefs, Moz, SEMRush, Buzzsumo, and Screaming Frog.
