Onward Search is hiring a Jr. SEO Specialist for a digital marketing agency client in Raleigh, N.C.!


We need someone who works efficiently and takes pride in their work. The right candidate is comfortable hanging around big spreadsheets, can do pivot tables and VLOOKUP's in their sleep, and is always excited about a new data source to analyze. Google Analytics, web crawl results, and rank data are a big part of this job, and you'll be happy analyzing them and discovering actionable opportunities. Communication and quickness are key.

You will:

  • Spend time analyzing datasets to identify issues and opportunities
  • Enhance your current SEO knowledge with the ins and outs of many powerful SEO tools
  • Uncover SEO opportunities for clients by manually investigating their site along with cross-referencing tools and your own data analysis
  • Work in a team setting, leading up SEO efforts

You should have some or all of the following attributes:

  • 1+ years Experience with SEO tools such as a Moz, Raven, Screaming Frog, Searchlight, SpyFu, etc.
  • Experience with WordPress and/or building websites
  • Comfortable looking at and reviewing HTML and CSS. (You don't need to write it from scratch, but you must be able to look and it and understand what it is doing.)
  • Deeply understand all aspects of Google Analytics, and be willing to get GA certified (if you're not already)
  • Comfortable working with Microsoft Excel (and its Google counterpart, Sheets)
  • A desire to work with data and be technical
  • The ability to turn analysis into a deliverable that a non-technical person can understand
  • Strong, clear writing skills
  • The capability to work well with a team
  • Strong problem-solving skills - if you don’t know something but a client needs it, you will do everything you can to quickly figure it out

Work flexibility! Work up to 40% remote and the other time on-site with an incredible team and office culture.

If you want to join a truly awesome work culture and are an SEO-fanatic, you are encouraged to apply. Similar Managerial level roles are also posted on our site. Apply today!
