Ollie was born with the mission of improving the lives of pets and pet parents nationwide. We make human-grade pet food, tailored for each dog’s nutritional needs, and deliver directly to our customers’ doors. Through Ollie’s carefully crafted meals, dogs can truly live their healthiest, happiest lives.
We are a newly remote team, with a majority of employees based in NYC, and are backed by the same venture capital companies behind Instacart, Warby Parker, Glamsquad, Mirror, Prose, and Allbirds.
We are looking for an SEO Manager to join the Marketing team and own a comprehensive SEO strategy for Ollie, helping drive core site SEO and deploying new content to drive significant, qualified organic traffic. You will drive new content development leveraging internal teams, external partners, and organic and paid media channels. This is a great opportunity for you to own a key channel, making a significant impact on Ollie’s growth.
This role will work cross functionally and require strong collaboration, communication and project management. You will report to the Sr Director of Acquisition & Retention, and work closely with our Brand and Technology teams to create traffic-driving content that converts site visitors into high-quality customers.
This role will require a strong blend of analytics, creative strategy, and technical knowledge, focused on driving organic traffic while maintaining Ollie’s brand identity. You should have a test and learn mentality, always wanting to improve our efforts. You will also keep Ollie current on SEO best practices and search engine updates that may impact us.
