Our client is seeking an insightful SEO Manager to improve practice and support of clients, many of which are Fortune 100 brands.
What They're Looking for: Our client is looking for an extremely motivated and ambitious search engine optimization expert who is raring to help grow and improve the SEO practice within the agency. This individual has to be curious, tenacious, and excited about working on the fortune 100 clients we serve in the financial, entertainment, and hospitality industries. (Primarily.

The person in this role must have the technical acumen to make specific recommendations - for instance, it’s not enough to say “you need microdata.” The actual snippets that need to be added.” However, this role does not need to be a developer.
