Ash Ketchum once said, “if you’re not first, you’re last”. Or maybe it was someone’s dad. Either way, SearchTides really takes that to heart. In an industry that is notoriously plagued by mediocrity and complacency, we’ve taken the opposite approach. Over the last nine years, we’ve steadily calibrated and perfected our product, ensuring we can actually (well, metaphorically) move mountains and get incredible SEO results for our clients.

You live and breathe link building – you both want to master the strategies of today, and be a visionary for the strategies of tomorrow. You’ll work across a couple of teams to ensure link building is executed to perfection, as well as new tests are rolled out effectively, so good communication and follow up are a must.

A great candidate is going to have experience with SEO and links, but is excited to build and run the most effective strategy for our roster of national clients. You can look at a brand and see the true path to become a market leader through link building.

Your tool stack will include: Ahrefs or Majestic, Google Sheets, Screaming Frog.

If this is you, let’s talk. After you, y’know, go through all the details:

What does a day in this role look like?

Everything that you do will be under the umbrella of link building strategy, implementation and experimentation. This will include:

  • Experimenting with new link building techniques, outreach methods, and new tweaks to our current strategies, in the constant effort to provide the best quality links for our clients
  • Monitoring link building impact, constantly making fine adjustments
  • Communicating with internal and external resources to fulfill the link building vision
  • Planning client strategy, including keyword research, anchor text, and target URLs
  • Acting as the Quality Control point for all links by constantly auditing what is being built by our link department

About You:

First, aligning with our company values is the minimum requirement to have a conversation:

  • Taking ownership
  • Communication
  • Integrity
  • Empathy
  • Persistence
  • Always Learning
  • Stay Humble and Modest

Sound like you? Great. This should also sound like you:

Have proven experience building or overseeing link building campaigns, running experiments within link building itself

And, these should too:

  • Link building excites you and you can explain why it’s so critical to overall SEO results
  • Love learning new strategies and following the latest SEO trends
  • Be autonomous as a default – but ask questions regularly
  • Change should be a constant for you. Link building is all about iterating and improvement
  • Bonus if you are a googlesheets wizard and can perform data analysis

The Other Cool Stuff:

SearchTides has been fully remote since 2015. We’ve figured out how to build a culture while being remote, balance time away from the screens, still strive for excellence, and do it all while having a good time throughout.

We also have:

  • Monthly guest speakers (everything from house plants to mixology sessions)
  • Ten federal holidays off per year
  • An additional 15 days of PTO
  • Office is closed last week of the year (still PTO)
  • You receive fancy laptop + any monitor needs
  • Healthcare reimbursement plan
  • Sponsored mental health program

Lastly, we are going through a rebrand that will complete in April. As we progress throughout the interview process, we can show you what we’ll be transitioning to. If you want to read our story in the meantime, go for it.
