Google Hires More SEOs
Google is now hiring contract SEOs through a hiring agency to work on the Google Store.
Last week, we reported that Google is hiring an SEO to work as an employee in their Google Cloud Platform division.
This weekend, I was forwarded an email from an SEO I know that shows Google is now hiring SEOs on a 12-month contract basis to work on the Google Store website at store.google.com.
The contract job means Google will not be hiring you directly, but instead, a third-party company will be your employer. You will, however, be working on-site in Google’s offices at Mountain View, California. The job title is “SEO Specialist/Project Manager II,” and the SEO contractor will be responsible for marketing Google’s devices, i.e., Nexus phones, tablets, Android Wear watches, Chromebooks, Nest, Chromecast, accessories, etc., through Google’s e-commerce storefront at store.google.com.
I do not want to reveal too much information here, but the job requires at least 3 years of SEO experience, technical know how when it comes to schema, and managing large-scale SEO efforts.
I don’t see a way to apply for this job, rather, the agency is reaching out to SEOs they think would be good at the job. I believe it pays around $60 per hour, which I am told is low for the Silicon Valley region.
