Hi! My name is Mac, and I am one of the hiring managers at Blocket, where we help people reduce their environmental footprint by buying and selling second hand stuff. Seriously, this is not PR mumbo-jumbo, we do care about this, and we measure our impact every year. Check it out for yourself here: https://secondhandeffect.schibsted.com/the-full-report/result-blocket-sweden/
As you saw from the job title, I am now looking for an SEO Technical Coach to join our organisation to help with stepping-up our search game.
This role is part of a two-person strategy, with a SEO Manager (also an opening! Read more at our careersite https://blocket.career/) responsible for laying out Blocket’s SEO strategy and coordinate its implementation, and an SEO technical coach who will guide and support our multiple teams in their SEO delivery.
Let me reiterate: this role is all about coaching other developers so they can do good SEO work, feel proud about it, and own SEO as a quality criteria for anything they do. In this role you will certainly end up writing some code, but the primary metrics for your success will be the SEO quality of the code written by the teams you will be coaching.
Also: while the SEO Technical Coach mission is to empower teams to do great SEO job, they are expected to be able to support the SEO manager too in drafting the general strategy, auditing the site, etc… These two people will be a team after all!
So, what are we looking for when it comes to the SEO Technical Coach? Glad you asked!
We realise that we have set the bar rather high. We are ambitious (and you should be too!), but our guiding principle is to hire the right person™, rather than the person who fits an ideal profile. If you feel you would do great in this role but don’t really meet the tech requirements (React, SEO experience) we would still love to hear from you. Growth mindset and passion for supporting others are a must, though!
