SEO Specialist


Northwoods is a digital solutions company that helps smart organizations create a superior online presence through the development of effective websites, software, and digital marketing services. Using a strategic approach, dedication to learning, problem solving abilities, and our unwavering honesty and integrity, we strive to become our clients’ most trusted digital partner, helping them to grow and achieve their goals.

We employ an in-house team of developers, designers, information architects, digital strategists, digital marketers, and account managers who work with our clients to understand their goals and objectives, and then develop, execute, measure and manage successful digital strategies that meet and exceed them. We are not a staffing firm. You’ll work with the same 45 really smart people day-to-day. They're (mostly) very friendly and they all like beer. Our work is never boring.

We value Family, Fun, Honesty, Excellence and Lifelong Learning. Key to our growth and success is the quality of our people. Northwoods is looking for an experienced SEO Specialist - a critical position within our digital marketing team.

Northwoods is an Equal Opportunity employer. Family, fun, honesty, excellence, and lifelong learning - that’s what Northwoods is all about.

With a relaxed environment, fresh hot popcorn, and the obligatory ping pong and foosball tables, we enjoy the amenities expected from a cutting-edge tech and digital marketing company. But that’s not what makes us love our jobs – it’s the people and the work that makes Northwoods great:

We learn something new each day. From Fortune 500 companies to industrial manufacturers to local non-profits, we work on a wide variety of projects. The diversity of our client pool and our commitment to forward-looking technologies and strategies means we’re constantly engaged and learning new things.

We trust and value each other.
Ego has no place at Northwoods (our president sits in a cubicle like the rest of us), and we don’t focus on titles. When any one of us has an idea, solution, or criticism, we know we can voice it openly and honestly – and we listen respectfully when our colleagues do the same.

We hire people, not skillsets. We don’t just find people familiar with specific tools or technologies; we look for motivated self-starters who know how to learn and are eager to grow. We hire the best and brightest – leaders, team players, and creative problem solvers – and give everyone the opportunity to make the most of their unique talents.

Our families come first.
We have a strong work ethic and commitment to our clients, but we also have busy lives. Sometimes we work from home, sometimes we choose to work odd hours, and sometimes we bring our kids or dogs (or both!) into the office. Each of us gets to decide for ourselves what the ideal work-life balance looks like. We each grow in our own way. As our interests change and career goals evolve, so do our roles with our clients and within the company. We all find new boundaries to push; Northwoods gives each of us the latitude and freedom to pursue our passions and create our own career story.

We’re all driven to constantly do our best. And Northwoods provides an environment that allows us all to do exactly that. A career at Northwoods isn’t just a career, it’s a lifestyle.
