< See all openings This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own everything related to organic search and SEO in a hyper-growth startup. ClickUp is an entirely content-led growth company, spending $0 on marketing and only growing from the viral nature of organic search and word of mouth. The product and our organic online presence have carried us from 0 to 100,000+ teams in under 2 years - and we're now one of the fastest growing software companies in the world.

In all things we do, we hate normal — in fact, we will diligently avoid normalcy in all of our marketing assets, collateral, and messaging. You will be in charge of maintaining a best in class technical SEO approach to maximize both user experience and erase tech debt for search engines, developing a strong CRO (conversion rate optimization) framework and competency, and leading and working with ClickUp's content agency and in-house team.

We are not newbies to SEO - we’ve acquired millions of users through our organic presence, so you shouldn’t be either. This role is for you if you’ve already organically scaled SEO campaigns and you’re looking for the next phase of challenging growth!

Our product is unique in that it’s highly customizable - it can be used for use cases ranging from very simple to highly complex. It will be your job to dive deep to understand every keyword opportunity and search trend which can be taken action upon based on ClickUp's product and competitive landscape. You will also be performing on and off page technical SEO audits, assisting with building and optimizing the internal linking strategy to maximize rankings, and conceiving and executing link building and outreach efforts.
