About You:

You are a full-fledged SEO and organic search junkie. You love geeking out over how to optimize content online, identify relevant keywords and staying up to date with the latest changes to Google algorithm. You use MOZ, SEMRush and a myriad of other SEO tools to hone your craft and look forward to whiteboard Friday. You know more Excel shortcuts than you care to admit. None of your family/friends understand what you do or understand schema markup or voice search and that’s okay, because we do. You aren’t afraid to push the envelope with new ideas or ways of doing things because the status quo is boring. Working at an agency is ideal for you because you like Nerf guns, playing softball, rafting and challenging work. You are a full-on SEO nerd – and proud of it. If this isn’t you: we’re sorry. It wasn’t meant to be. Nothing personal, we’re just picky.
