Who are we looking for?
We are searching for an SEO Outreach Specialist to operationalize effective processes around link prospecting and outreach management for our suite of social networking sites. This person will be a primary stakeholder in developing relationships and securing links from other websites to our social networks. This person will report directly to the SEO Director and must be able to manage a small team of contractors, if necessary. This person understands that effective outreach will have a meaningful business impact for our portfolio of social networks.
We’re growing (over 30 brands under MyHealthTeams), so there are plenty of other cool things to tackle. This is a true growth opportunity for the right individual, specifically someone who is looking to build on their link building and SEO experience. We have thousands of articles and incredible research studies that are ripe for link opportunities.
We are a strongly mission-based company, and our content empowers people living with chronic conditions. For this reason, you need good judgment, empathy and compassion. Some of the content we cover is challenging and must be handled with great sensitivity. As the individual performing outreach, you must understand that you will be the first impression of our company to a lot of the sites you will be reaching out to. We take that responsibility seriously, as should you. We are offering a great opportunity to make a difference in the health tech space.
What you bring to the role:
- 3+ years of related experience
- Experience using SEO tools such as Ahrefs, Majestic SEO, Scrapebox, Screaming Frog, Pitchbox, & Google Search Console
- Develops knowledge of business, competition and latest industry news and trends.
- Effective time management skills with an ability to multitask and prioritize
- Very thorough/rigorous approach to link opportunity standards
- Excellent written and verbal communication skills to build strong working relationships and effectively collaborate with stakeholders
We have two office locations in San Francisco and Sacramento, with a distributed workforce in the U.S. — both the West Coast and East Coast. We strive to be agile and test-driven, but we’re pragmatic enough to know we’re not perfect. A close-knit company where everyone respects everyone else’s contribution to our success.
MyHealthTeams is a lean (40-person), venture-backed startup that creates social networks for people facing chronic health conditions. We believe that if you’re diagnosed with a disease such as MS, lupus, breast cancer, or diabetes (to name a few), it should be easy to find the best people around to help you. With social networks in 33 different chronic conditions and more than 2 million members, MyHealthTeams is the fastest-growing social network in chronic health. We believe that four years from now, if you’re diagnosed with a chronic condition, your doctor will prescribe one of our social networks because being socially engaged improves health outcomes for their patients. We develop partnerships that empower and are transparent to our members.
