The opportunity

We’re looking for a passionate Head of SEO to join the performance.io team. As Head of SEO, you’ll work closely with our Global Head of SEO to ensure all our accounts have strategic direction when it comes to SEO disciplines and help set SEO objectives for our clients. You’ll be a self-starter, willing to get stuck in and show initiative on ways we can grow our team.

 

You’ll have previous experience managing and growing a team as building out your SEO team to service our clients will be a key part of this role.

 

As we are a growing agency you’ll have plenty of opportunities to put forward recommendations on SEO products and toolsets along with our Global Head of SEO and global team. You’ll have a desire to find and tell your own story and not be afraid to challenge the status quo.

A bit more about performance.io

With the industry’s number one online performance benchmarking solution and its proprietary SEO and SEO content solutions, performance.io is ensuring its clients (15 of top 20 pharma) win the organic search landscape and page one real estate on Google. We are a young, energetic and diverse team with offices across London, NYC, India and the Netherlands where across the board we also place emphasis on the importance of enjoying social activity outside of work – we work hard and play hard. We are looking for the brightest talents to be part of the story and help drive our ambition to redefine global online performance in healthcare.

What will you be doing?

  • You will report into the Global Head of SEO and ensure that all clients have clear SEO objectives in place.
  • You’ll work very closely with our U.S new business lead in supporting on pitches and proposals to help grow the U.S business.
  • Inform and help educate the wider business on updates within the SEO industry, particularly around medical SEO and E-E-A-T.
  • Senior stakeholder management with our accounts team ensuring across high-profile accounts our strategy and SEO performance is communicated clearly.
  • You will build out and manage a team directly, comprising of SEO and performance specialists.
  • Work closely with our India function to ensure we drive margin and improve efficiency through our processes.
  • Attend client touchpoints to show senior SEO sponsorship.

What experience do you need?

  • Ideally, international SEO experience is preferred and would be advantageous given our global client portfolio.
  • Demonstrate an interest and dedication to SEO out of your day to day role, i.e have your own blog or attend webinars/conferences around digital (We don’t want people who just read Moz).
  • Think different, we have no problem with being maverick, at times it’s ok to act now, apologise later, if intentions are good.
  • Work hard, play hard. The energy you will bring to the team is important. To play, is to do things voluntarily, without predefined outcomes and to step outside of your comfort zone. This we encourage.

Skill requirements:

  • 7+ years of SEO experience (preferably agency).
  • 3+ years of management experience.
  • A solid understanding of how SEO works within a marketing mix particularly with PPC/paid.
  • Demonstrated experience in driving SEO results on a large account in a previous role.
  • You’ll be comfortable and have experience in developing SEO budgets and proposals with support from our accounts and BD team.
  • You’ll have experience in senior stakeholder management and be comfortable in attending high profile calls to demonstrate the value of SEO.
  • We’re looking for a rounder, but you will have decent SEO technical experience in carrying out recommendations around page speed, AMP, schema mark-up.
