Company Overview: 

Beanstalk Internet Marketing is a full-service agency located in downtown Victoria.  We offer a wide range of services from SEO and SEM to penalty audits and social media management.  We enjoy a fun work environment but always put our clients first.  You'll find toys around the office and people focused on the task at hand, work hard play a little is the motto.

Job Summary: 

We are hiring for the position of SEO specialist.  The successful candidate will meet the requirements below and get along well with the current staff and owners.  We run a drama-free workplace, we get along well and are respectful of each other.

You will be tasked with working with other staff and clients in the areas of onsite work and link acquisition and communicating directly with clients via and phone.  If any of this doesn't appeal to you the role isn't a good fit.

Each team member works across the board on clients.  We may give preference to staff with specific knowledge or skills but each team member will be assigned a diverse set of tasks.  Our client base ranges from vitamins to travel tours but we don't do adult or casinos or anything else that the owners can't ethically get behind.

We work on salary Monday to Friday.  Hours assigned to you will not go above the monthly average of 8 hours per day HOWEVER if you work slowly or like checking your Facebook page or texting your BFF between projects or need to learn skills you could reasonably be expected to have, it might take you longer.  That's your responsibility.

Due to the confidential and competitive nature of our business you need to be willing to sign non-disclosure and non-compete agreements.
