Senior Technical SEO Executive - RocketMill

Digital, Media & Technology

Brighton and Hove

Closing date: 03/05/2017

We're a small digital marketing agency by design. We’ve purposely kept our team small – around 35 – because we believe small is beautiful, and independence is essential. It gives our clients direct access to our specialist teams, and builds meaningful connections between the people commissioning the work and the people building it. Our decision-making is driven by our client’s best interests, and our teams work closely together to ensure campaigns are connected and agile. We want what our clients want – amazing digital experiences for their audiences.

Job Description:

We are looking for a Senior Technical SEO Executive to join the team in our Brighton office. If you have a couple of years' industry experience and want to take the next step in your career, it could be perfect for you.

The Technical SEO team are passionate about organic search optimisation, brilliant digital experiences, and the pursuit of technical excellence. You will share our passions, with considerable experience using SEO to achieve sustainable visibility on search engines. You'll be accountable for the technical integrity of our clients’ websites and digital properties.

RocketMill offers a creative environment, excellent prospects, and a host of meaningful perks including flexible hours and a 90-minute lunch.

Skills Range:


  • Comprehensive SEO knowledge, and commitment to keep this up-to-date
  • Experience performing website audits and backlink analyses
  • Proficiency with industry-standard SEO tools – crawlers, link checkers, etc.
  • Google Analytics IQ certification
  • Reporting experience – updating clients on performance against KPIs
  • Advanced Microsoft Excel (e.g., VLOOKUPs, PivotTables, advanced formulae)
  • Excellent skills in Microsoft Office and everyday IT
  • Excellent written and spoken English
  • Excellent communication with technical and non-technical stakeholders
  • Accountable for the performance and technical integrity of your clients
  • Able to balance your workload and deliver on time
  • Be a positive person that adds energy to our team


  • 2+ years’ experience in technical SEO
  • Strategic experience – consulting on how organic search can have a measurable impact within cross-channel digital marketing campaigns
  • Experience designing large-scale SEO-friendly information architecture
  • Experience supporting migrations – change of domain, CMS, protocol, etc.
  • Advanced knowledge of HTML, CSS and JavaScript
  • Working knowledge (or better) of PHP, SQL or other relevant technologies
  • Working knowledge (or better) of WordPress, Magento, other CMS platforms
  • Experience with other analytics platforms – e.g. Adobe Analytics, Omniture
Person Specification:

You will have an excellent understanding of how websites are built – not just on a technical level, but also their stakeholders and workflows. You will be comfortable working alongside developers, ideally within agile workflows. You will also be proficient in providing non-technical stakeholders with clear, concise and jargon-free technical SEO recommendations.

The successful candidate will have considerable experience working in technical SEO, in an agency or client-side role. You will demonstrate a good knowledge of organic search optimisation, with a track record of successfully consulting on technical SEO projects.

The successful candidate will undertake website audits, keyword research and backlink analyses as a core part of their role, and must be comfortable delivering exemplary documentation to deadlines using a suite of industry-leading software.

The digital landscape is always evolving, so it is imperative you keep your SEO knowledge up-to-date. You will, for example, demonstrate knowledge of international SEO, mobile optimisation, and conversational search. Moreover, RocketMill places data at the heart of our decisions, so holding up-to-date Google Analytics IQ certification is essential.

The ideal candidate will recognise the pivotal role user experience plays in modern organic visibility. Experience developing large-scale information architecture and supporting migrations is highly desirable.

We are a small team, so the most important requirement of all is to get stuck in and make your mark – to benefit your clients, agency, and career.
