SEOmoz is a profitable start-up that develops market-leading software and technology used by Internet marketers and webmasters to improve their rankings in search engines. We are looking to hire a Marketing Oracle to join our team.
Primary Responsibilities & Requirements:
Producing exceptional content has been the foundation of our strategy since the beginning. We're looking for someone to produce extraordinary content for us and manage our entire content production process (the blog, news, guides, videos, and lots more). Whether it's original research, data analysis, or thought leadership in the inbound marketing space, we're looking for someone who can become our best blogger and produce our most linked-to content. You should have a proven track record of producing quality, engaging content for social media audiences, experience and knowledge of all forms of inbound marketing, and the ability to see where things are headed (i.e. be a marketing oracle).
Quality content is of the utmost importance to us, and you must share this obsession. You should be able to distill complex ideas into simple ones, create visualizations and infographics of data sets, and have a deep-rooted desire to teach and communicate ideas online. You’re abreast of the latest industry news and able to quickly respond and communicate the implications to our community. This position is unlike any you'll find at other companies -- there are few formal requirements. If you're passionate about producing phenomenal content, then this job is for you!
Experience or knowledge with search engine optimization and inbound marketing.
Phenomenal writing and editing skills.
Infographic, informatics and design experience experience a big plus.
A working knowledge of HTML and CSS.
Transparent, Authentic, Generous, Fun, Empathetic, and Exceptional (TAGFEE). Cultural fit and values are of utmost importance at SEOmoz. Our values are outlined in the TAGFEE Tenets, required reading for everyone interested in being part of the SEOmoz team. (see http://www.seomoz.org/blog/what-we-believe-why-seomozs-tagfee-tenets )
True belief in the mission. We want people who are passionate about our mission - to simplify the promotion of ideas on the web. We believe that web marketing and web promotion are too difficult, arcane, obscure and, in many cases, mired in negative stereotypes. It's our goal to transform not just the process and the software, but the very mentality the business world has about SEO and broader web marketing to something positive, exciting and filled-with-opportunity.
Ability to work effectively while growing a variety of projects. If you love to bounce between a number of projects in one week (sometimes in the same hour) this job is for you.
Excellent problem solver, creative thinker, and extremely self-motivated.
Able to herd cats, dogs, and the occasional circus animal.
Loves robots, or more specifically, our beloved Roger mozBot ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/jcolman/4953528953/ )
U.S. citizenship or permanent resident status required.
We're offering a competitive salary for this position (based on experience), in order to attract the best candidates and an excellent benefits package.
