  • Conduct in-depth analyses of search engine data from first-party and third-party data sources (e.g., SEO traffic data, rankings data, search console data, etc) and partner with software engineers to build new internal tools to procure data when it’s not available from an existing source.
  • Conduct experiments to test hypotheses you develop through data analysis, analyze and share experiment results.
  • Provide guidance to category managers, site merchandisers, vendor partners, and product managers to build SEO requirements into their workflows and processes.
  • Exhibit a strong sense of ownership, bias for action, and superior communication skills; be willing to roll up your sleeves to get the job done.

What You’ll Need:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Business, Computer Science, Finance, Marketing, or related field, or equivalent experience.
  • 5+ years of total work experience preferred; 3+ years of experience in SEO preferred with other experience in Product Management, Finance, Category Management, Consulting, or Business Intelligence.
  • Deep experience in every facet of SEO: technical SEO, on-page factors, user experience, performance, etc. (you won’t do any link building here so that’s not relevant).
  • Strong desire to put the customer’s needs ahead of a search engine algorithm.
  • Excellent analytical skills with demonstrated experience turning data into actionable insights.
  • Deep understanding of how search engines crawl, render, index, and rank web pages.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication and data presentation skills, including an ability to effectively communicate with both business and technical teams.
