Search Marketing Manager

The Search Marketing Manager (SMM) takes responsibility for leading the direction, workflow, implementation and scheduling of client marketing programs to help increase organic search listings and rankings and to meet individualized marketing plan goals and company objectives as defined for each project.

The SMM should be a technical wizard and a proficient supervisor and will be responsible for orchestrating SEM team activities to ensure compliance with deadlines and the production of meticulously accurate and inspired reports with thoughtful analysis and ingenious recommendations. Successful candidate will be prepared to flawlessly deliver a final product, suitable for issuance directly to the client.
