First, a few questions:
Do you use multiple spreadsheets to plan your kickball league?
Do you know your customers so well that you can describe everything from their business to their favorite cupcake?
Are you the “go to” person to organize every family vacation (even if it's not your own family)?
Do you want to work with an amazing and passionate group of people building products that customers love?
If you've answered yes to the above, congratulations! You're a lot like us and we can't wait to meet you.
About the Company
SEOmoz is a rapidly growing, profitable technology startup. That said, we dream big--we aim to provide companies with the best, most advanced ways to measure and improve their organic web marketing (i.e. any traffic source you don’t pay for - SEO, social, blogs, viral videos, etc.).
We’ve got the reputation of a big player with the energy of a young, nimble organization. This allows us to do very exciting things when we smell opportunity. We pride ourselves on developing kick-ass (and good-looking) software, indexing the web, providing a robust API that serves hundreds of millions of queries each day, and hosting the web’s most vibrant web marketing community.
In our downtown Seattle offices, mere steps from Pike Place Market, we maintain a fun, supportive, laid-back work environment. We pay well (salaries are on par with the big guys - Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Sauron) and we work hard (sometimes long hours are a must, but we pride ourselves on working smart, not 80-hour nightmare weeks). We’re also very generous with vacation and flex time because we understand that our employees have lives, interests, and obligations outside of the office.
Our core values include being transparent (you’ll get every key metric about the business each week), having fun (pie-eating contests - check! Team ice cream trips - check! Friday afternoon Settlers of Catan parties - check!) and creating exceptional products our customers love.
