Link Building Team Lead [CLOSED]

Full Time 2000.00 - 2500.00 USD Type: Monthly

WLDM is a smart, lean, remote and international league of e-commerce marketers who partner with the best in the industry. Their business is an Australian digital marketing agency that provides services such as SEO, Google/Facebook Ads, backlinking, PPC, Conversion Rate Optimisation, website audits, content optimisations, etc.

They believe that numbers speak louder than words, and use their streetwise style of business intelligence to cut through the bullshit, growing their clients’ ROI while they sleep at night. They are thought leaders, not blog readers, and partner with fellow pioneers who make their own rules in the digital game.

Their corporate culture is extremely vibrant, easy going and versatile. The management is encouraged to hire for attitude and train for skill. Because WLDM values the voice and opinion of every employee, their working environment can be considered “open-sceptic”. Working in their company will boost your confidence as there are neverending chances of growth.

The team loves collaborating with forward-thinking individuals which is why their current team of ~ 100 members is the company’s greatest asset.

This is why the company's work culture can be best described as: "To win in the marketplace, you must first win in the workspace. There's no magic formula for great company culture. The key is just to treat your team members the way you would like to be treated."
