733 Struck St, Madison, WI 53711, USA
Employees can work remotely

Company Description

While this position is full-time remote, we’re looking for candidates that live in the U.S. This is to facilitate communication and coordination with internal teams and clients.

The Digital Ring isn’t your average marketing agency. We’re an award-winning crew of business-minded strategists, creatives, and developers. We work with clients big and small — across a wide range of industries — offering web design & development, SEO, content marketing & copywriting, branding, paid digital advertising, and more.

When we partner with a client, we become a seamless extension of their team. We get to know their company and their customer via an in-depth Discovery phase before creating and executing a carefully considered strategy to deliver a beautiful website or tailored marketing plan designed to help them reach their business goals.

Job Description

Who’s the Captain of Your Team?

In this position, you will report to the VP of Digital Operations. You will not have direct reports initially.

Why This Job Matters

As a leading full-service digital marketing agency, we launch and manage hundreds of client websites each year. It’s our duty to ensure that each of these websites is set up for organic success. Whether we are working with a full-blown SEO client or helping with a simple website refresh, you’ll need to incorporate best practices to mitigate any potential declines in organic search visibility and traffic, and to improve rankability for better future performance.

SEO managers at The Digital Ring are business-minded and think holistically about all factors that can affect website performance and traffic quality. They work with our developers on technical optimizations and our copywriters on content optimization. They also collaborate with our paid search team to ensure the SERP landscape is optimal for clients.

This position often interacts directly with our clients. The ideal candidate will have a firm grasp on all aspects of SEO, and the ability to answer client questions, share insights and reasoning, and educate confidently. As the search landscape constantly evolves, you’ll be expected to stay on top of the latest SEO trends.
