Skills & Requirements

Who you are

We believe you are a true SEO wizard with at least 5 years of experience with a proven track record of increasing SE traffic, whether in-house or at an agency. We understand that nobody is a 100% expert in all aspects of SEO and the most important thing is that you have the ability to understand the big picture, you are a great communicator, and last but not least, you are willing to learn whatever you need to achieve your goals. You are not afraid to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty.

Your skills

  • 5 years experience with a proven track record of increasing SE traffic

    • Preferably: experience with at least one large site (more than 1 million URLs).
    • You’re a problem solver: whether the solution is talking to the right person, implementing a process or a technical solution – you will find it.
    • We are not into micromanagement. You should be self-directed, goal oriented and data driven. (Though we are of course here if you need guidance or help)
    • Great if you have experience with rank-trackers (we use SEOmonitor, sistrix, SEMrush), crawlers (e.g. Oncrawl), web analytics (we use GA, Google Search Console...), reporting tools (we use datastudio and tableau), keyword analytics tools (we use KWfinder amongst others), backlinks tools (we use ahrefs).
  • You should be proficient at SEO analysis e.g. KW analysis, traffic analytics, log file analysis, technical platform analysis

And btw, if you are a coder/have a tech-SEO background that is a great bonus (not a must though). If you have experience with logfile analysis, crawl budget optimization and SEO a/b testing, even better!

What’s in it for you?

Obviously, you will be joining an awesome group of people at Blocket. We are also currently undergoing a transformation towards future technologies, which means that you will be able to help us modernize our tech stack and take SEO into consideration from the beginning.
You will work with exciting new projects and technologies, and be able to build great expertise in different areas. Through Schibsted, you will join a team of SEO experts working with large sites, share experiences and best practices, have access to a suite of tools and learn about cutting edge SEO through our machine-learning team and loads of self development classes.

Hello from your colleague, Reggie!

I am the product manager of the team of which you will be a part, so we will work closely together. I have worked with SEO previously so I will help you to get comfortable in your role. I am an Icelander living in Hagsätra with my wife and two young children. I have been at Blocket for almost 2 years and love the engaged, friendly environment here. I am passionate about working in a data-driven way to continuously improve our product and look forward to hearing your thoughts about how to do that with Blocket SEO. In my free time I love literature and learning about just about anything, so odds are that no matter what you are into, we can enjoy chatting about it :)

Interested in joining the Blocket world?

We look forward to hearing from you! Send your CV or apply with your LinkedIn-profile and let us know what makes you tick. We would love to get to know you a bit better! For questions, contact [email protected]
