Mid-Senior SEO Strategist

we're looking for a dynamic individual to join our SEO department.

The candidate will work as part of a large team of account managers, developers, designers, and copywriters.

The agency is full of ultra-talented people, who all buy into the challenge of delivering exceptional results in every activity we do - be it natural and paid search strategy, analytics, content production, design, or development.

We're driven by enthusiasm, caffeine and, in large, measure by the desire to enjoy what we do. That means that while we work smart, we try not to work too hard. By 6pm the office is usually deserted.

This position will be based in our Durbanville office, so would be particularly well suited to someone who lives in Cape Town’s northern suburbs and currently endures the commute into town each morning.

If you don’t hear from us within two weeks of submitting your application, please consider it to have been unsuccessful.
