SEO Testing Consultant ($55-75k)
Professional Services · Seattle Flexible Remote
SearchPilot is a profitable and growing startup with team members in the UK and US. We are on a mission to prove the value of SEO for the world's biggest websites and we'd like you to join us.
SearchPilot is looking for two SEO Testing Consultants to join our Professional Services team in Seattle, initially working remotely.
The SearchPilot platform enables our customers to run SEO A/B tests, make agile changes to their websites, and discover the true SEO and CRO impact of those changes. Before spinning out as an independent company, SearchPilot was developed by Distilled and was known as the Distilled Optimisation Delivery Network (ODN). We power the websites of some of the largest global brands and Fortune 500 companies.

As an SEO Testing Consultant, you’ll be responsible for being the main point of contact between SearchPilot and 3-5 of our customers, as part of our growing Professional Services team. Day-to-day, this involves:
- Managing the customer relationship, including onboarding of new customers and keeping them updated on test planning and results.
- Coming up with SEO and CRO test hypotheses, and working with customers to prioritize them.
- Using the SearchPilot testing platform to Implement changes to customers’ websites and set up tests.
- Monitoring and analysing split test outcomes.
- Communicating the results of tests via regular customer meetings, and written reports.
You will also have opportunities to share insights from split testing to SearchPilot’s audience, and the larger SEO community via public case studies and blog posts. We have a strong culture of learning and knowledge sharing within SearchPilot, and you will have opportunities to learn from, and teach things to, your colleagues and to grow your visibility in the wider industry.
Running SearchPilot customer accounts is an exceptional way to learn more about what works and what doesn’t in SEO - there are very few other ways to get access to the range of scientific SEO tests that we get to run and see across a wide range of sites in different industries. The nature of our product means that our customers value the work we do and can prove its value to their bosses and organisation. This role is likely to be perfect for someone who has run agency accounts and wished they could give more definitive answers to their clients, or someone who has worked in-house and wished they could prove the value of their work.

The ideal candidate will satisfy all of the below areas, but deep experience of all points is not necessary for you to apply.

SearchPilot spun out of Distilled in early 2020, with the whole team becoming part of the new company. At Distilled, the product was called DistilledODN.
At SearchPilot we are passionate about our team, and we want that to be more than just words. We want to continue to build a team of people who can thrive and succeed, as well as feel valued and welcomed, at all levels.
As part of that goal, we are trying hard to actively build a diverse team, as we believe diversity is a necessary component to building the strongest company possible. To this end, one of the steps we have taken is committing to an annual report assessing how we are doing on this front - the first report is now available.
