As part of our team, you will be helping us create an entirely new network for the world's money. For everyone, everywhere.

More about our mission.


Job Description

What’s the role:

We’re looking for a technical SEO specialist to join our newly formed and rapidly growing Owned Sites team.

As a technical SEO specialist in the Owned Sites team, you’ll have the backing and resources of Wise with the freedom and autonomy to run tests and experiments on sites you’ll take full ownership of.

Excited by the idea of launching 40 million URLs or running split tests on sites used by millions of people? Then this could be the right role for you, as you’ll be joining colleagues who did that in their first couple of months in the team.

In this role you will be responsible for identifying, prioritising, and executing new opportunities in search. This could be through launching a new category on an existing site, building a site from scratch, or acquiring a third party site that already ranks for relevant keywords.

We’re looking for someone who is methodical, execution-first, and that can thrive in an ambitious and ambiguous environment. Experience using APIs to extract data and meaningful insights is a big plus.

Owned Sites is like a start-up within Wise. We’re part of the marketing team, and our focus is on acquiring new customers and driving revenue through a portfolio of ~50 bought-and-built sites that sit outside of Wise.com. Exiap, a transparent international money transfer comparison website powered by APIs is a good example of this.

We do more than just SEO. We build products to make

Your mission:

  • Identify, size, and prioritise new opportunities through keyword research and commercial value

  • Understand our prospective customers: who they are and what they want

  • Produce and scale high quality websites and landing pages

  • Work closely with our development team to meet your objectives

  • Identify and evaluate possible website acquisition targets

  • Optimise landing pages to meet business goals and provide an excellent user experience

  • Ensure the sites and products you look after follow SEO best practice

  • Measure opportunity and impact, and make data-driven decisions

  • See the results of your work making a difference to people in their everyday lives


Qualifications

About you

  • You have experience working as a technical SEO, either in-house or at an agency

  • ​​You have a track record of growing user acquisition through growing traffic

  • You have independently completed complex SEO projects (for example: site architecture planning, crawl optimization, launch of a new site/product etc.)

  • You are methodical in your approach (but avoid paralysis by analysis)

  • You have an execution-driven mindset

  • You have hands-on experience with both content and technical SEO

  • You have experience working with APIs (e.g. using Screaming Frog with the Search Console inspection API or using Google Sheet scripts)

  • You are comfortable working in a highly ambiguous environment

  • You prioritise effectively, take ownership, and get things done

  • You have experience building business cases and persuading with data

  • You know how to measure your own performance

  • You work well individually and within a team

  • You are not afraid to learn new things

Some extra skills that would be awesome:

  • You speak a foreign language and/or can conduct keyword research in foreign languages

  • You have successfully conducted user research or formed decisions based on user research data

  • You have run your own side project

  • You have some proficiency with a coding language, like Python or JavaScript

  • You have experience with GA4 and GTM
