🤔If you’re reading these phrases you’re probably wondering ‘is this job going to be like the rest I’ve ever applied for? Or will I ever find a team of super passionate growth marketing nerds that work in a self-learning eronment backed by a fair degree of leadership science? Well if you’ve been practicing SEO for at least 5 years then we think you’ve found the mother ship! 🛸👾
💭Maybe you’ve heard of us, maybe you haven’t but we rank for a variety of keywords related to our thought leadership output, that is the part that concerns you right? As the Egyptian saying goes ‘only the devil speaks of himself’ but what the heck when you’re trying to attract top talent we’ll show some notches on our belt. Whether we say we ‘do SEO’ but don’t actually do anything. Pop in ‘performance marketing agency Egypt,’ ‘how to get hired as a digital marketer,’ ‘state of digital marketing egypt’ or ‘growth marketing in egypt’ or ‘conversion rate optimization Egypt’ and we rank for all of these keywords. As an agency we’re simply people who want to improve the culture of marketing in Egypt by carefully crafting the narrative on what it means to create a knowledgeable customer. Some of our inside agency quirks include scoffing at the A/B/C class dividing agencies and rolling our eyes at meaningless ads with celebrities, to put it bluntly we dislike (because we don’t use ‘hate’) a lot of push marketing done in Egypt and find that the overwhelming majority don’t invest enough time in thought leadership. Our internal culture on the other hand is that of readers and constant self learners who uphold the bonds of our rippler clan above all else (as one of our values goes “help your fellow rippler before you help yourself.”) Just like any organization, we have many inconsistencies, make a lot of mistakes and do a lot of things less than perfectly. However, we are brutally self-aware and we are always listening, owning up and growing with our people and growing in relation to the market.
With that out of the way! And yes, in case you’re wondering why we are yapping like this, well we like making our job listings a bit long form to weed out people who don’t focus and read. You’d be surprised how many people just apply and submit a CV then come to the interview haven’t read the “long paragraphs,” newsflash, we bake humor and wittiness in them so that we can joke about them in the interview with you!)
📊 📈 So as Search Engine Optimization Speacialist you’ve been in this for a while and it’s your career and baby, you’ve passed the Dunning Kruger Mount Stupid peak and are now sitting handsomely in that valley of lesser confidence but gaining experience everyday is humbling you and creating the best mix of confidence/knowlege ratio. Our SEO Specialist has to have a few things that are pertinent to the job. A strong developer background or at least a strong familiarity with file managers, Gits and FTPs in order to not completely rely on our in-house team of martech developers when shit hits the fan.
