Tech SEO Contractor

Location: San Diego, CA
Department: SEO
Experience: Experienced

The Job

Screaming Frog is your best friend and it’s likely that you’ve been known to talk about hreflang over happy hour. You’re not necessarily a developer, but you can make your way through HTML and are able to communicate technical recommendations and implementation requirements at all levels of understanding.


For you, technical site audits are like treasure hunts, and you are always ready to start digging. You possess the attention to detail to uncover the subtlest of site issues and the flexibility to handle disruption or engineering push back with aplomb. You will work on multiple client projects, advising clients and colleagues on architecture best practices and helping to troubleshoot technical issues with a “hands-on,” personal touch that Seer is known for.


The Skills

  • 3-5 years of experience in SEO
  • Excellent organizational skills and the ability to manage competing deadlines
  • Strong understanding of technical SEO (Canonicalization, Sitemaps, Crawl Budget etc.)
  • Ability to recognize common technical issues and explain their solutions coherently in plain speak, ensuring that clients and teammates understand the recommendations
  • Ability to diagnose and resolve technical issues on sites with tens of thousands to over 1 million pages
  • Ability to research technical issues and make actionable and well-informed recommendations based on your findings
  • Comfortable running Screaming Frog or DeepCrawl with a range of configuration settings
  • Comfortable retrieving and analyzing data from Google Search Console / Bing Webmaster Tools
  • Advanced understanding of Excel (pivot tables, lookups, and conditional functions)


Bonus Points

  • Previous agency experience
  • Experience working on enterprise-level sites, including e-commerce and international sites
  • Experience working with CMSes (WordPress, Drupal, Joomla!, Sitecore, Shopify, etc.)
  • Knowledge of programming languages (JavaScript, Python, SQL, etc.)
