SEO Product Manager
You’re a jack-of-all-trades motivated by the mystery of search engines’ black boxes, by the potential embedded in their enormous reach, and by the rush of outsmarting your competition and rising to the top of page one.

You’re a deft project manager: copiously well-organized, task-focused, and a persuasive interdepartmental communicator. You’re a curious, rigorous, and self-sufficient explorer of data. You’re not an engineer but you fluently understand how websites and search engines work. You have a knack for always finding a graceful compromise between the ideal solution for search engines and the ideal solution for humans.
