About the company

Hill and Ponton is a leading law firm that has been pioneering VA Disability Compensation Claims. Our firm was founded in 1986 in Orlando, Florida, and since then, we have grown to serve clients throughout the United States and its territories. 

At our firm, we are driven by three core values:

  • Our decades of expertise within the field of VA disability law
  • Our compassion and dedication to our veterans
  • Our energy to fight for our clients to get the help they deserve

Our expertise in VA Disability law is second to none, and we are proud to have written the book on how to obtain VA compensation benefits. We take pride in sharing our vast knowledge and resources with veterans and other law firms.  For as many cases as we directly handle, we help 10 fold more just with the education we provide through our blogs and videos.

We have a skilled marketing team with backgrounds in SEO, PPC, writing, and video production. Our goal is to become the best resource online for veterans looking for VA disability compensation, and help as many people as possible through our content.

About the role

We are seeking a skilled and experienced search engine specialist to join our law firm's marketing team as our Senior SEO Specialist. The Senior SEO Specialist will be responsible for increasing the organic traffic and leads for the website. The successful candidate will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, a strong understanding of how search engines operate, content strategy, and experience planning and executing marketing campaigns.

  • Oversees design & development for site
  • Manages website health & structure
  • Maintains brand style and consistency across site
  • Manages content direction & topic strategy
  • Conducts keyword research and competitor analysis

  • Responsible to keeping scholarship page up to date
  • Goaled on website traffic and website conversion rate (organic search performance)

The Senior SEO Specialist will help us develop and implement content strategies through proper keyword research, planning, and assigning projects to our writer.

We have a growing site (around 1000 pages at this time) with a majority made up of blog posts that have been around for years. You will be conducting keyword research, analyzing where we may have cannibalization within our site, reviewing competitors and reverse engineering their strategies, and keeping the team up to date on any search engine updates. 

About you

We are looking for someone with extensive experience on SEO projects both large and small. The ideal candidate will be comfortable analyzing reports from tools like Google Analytics (GA4), Google Search Console, Ahrefs, and SEMrush. This person should have great organizational and project management skills, since we always have interesting project ideas and new opportunities but need to prioritize effectively through our project management system (ClickUp).

This person should be excited to do analysis (keyword and competitor), but also be hands on to make changes to the website. While we do have a phenomenal writer on our team, she will need your direction which topics she should be updating or creating new pages for. We're looking for someone who can dig into data, organize, and come up with a good plan that our team can execute to be successful.

We have a small team, so we are constantly working together to discuss new ideas and potential changes. You must be comfortable working in a team environment and being a contributor to discussions.

What's in it for you?

This is an hourly role, and will come with similar benefits that our onshore employees see. 

  • Fair pay based on experience
  • Quarterly bonuses based on individual and company performance
  • Paid time off
  • Ability to work remotely
  • Flexible working schedule, but must overlap with our team each day since we are on the US East Coast (e.g., if you work better during your mornings we can find ways to accommodate)
  • Weekly 1 on 1 meetings to discuss performance, growth, and opportunities

How to apply?

Submit your resume as well as a short summary about you as well as the following information:

  • How long have you been working in the SEO industry?
  • What kind of projects do you love to work on?
  • Which tools are you most comfortable using?
  • What are your thoughts on the recent Google updates?
  • After taking a look at our website, what are 1 or 2 observations you have?
