Senior SEO Specialist

In this position as a Senior SEO Specialist you will be responsible for all aspects of SEO. You will conduct SEO audits, build strategies, execute on those strategies, and deliver reports to clients. This position requires an in-depth knowledge of search engines, keyword research, copywriting, and relevant technology. SEO is a fast-paced, ever-changing landscape, and you must continuously learn and evolve.

Plaudit is a results oriented team and a good fit for self-starters with an entrepreneurial mindset. We welcome you to work remotely, but do require everyone to be in the St. Paul's office one day per week. This is to allow for company wide meetings to review projects and to hold social events (company lunches, happy hours, etc). Otherwise, if you do not have a client meeting in the office, you are free to work remotely and forgo a daily commute!

Plaudit Design was established more than 23 years ago as a full-service, digital-first firm specializing in providing online strategies to clients through the creation of websites and delivery of marketing and web application services. Plaudit was recognized by the Minnesota Business magazine as one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For, and by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal as one of the Best Places to Work.
