Note from Bruce

Bruce Clay Inc is an expert search marketing agency. Our SEO and PPC analysts have an average well above 10+ years of experience and our services are not for the timid. We focus on SEO and PPC deep dives to increase search traffic for small to large clients in competitive industries.

Our business is growing and we seek analysts all of the time – planning to hire 2 a month for a while. This is for people loving agency work, want to expand their expertise, and love solving a variety of puzzles. Sort of becoming a doctor by working in an ER room… you see it all.

We seek 10+ year SEO experts, PPC experts, and a hard hybrid role – SEO aware content creator and editor across many disciplines. In all cases we provide our training on our methods so we move as a team, and it is a very rewarding experience. If you are great at what you do but are not with a leader and want to expand your career, contact us.

BUT we are also looking for an SEO and a content guru (2 people) to work on internal websites. We have several and we would like to revisit every page. Time to refresh and expand, clarify and educate, and rise above the others. These folks are not usually going to be involved in agency efforts (although we do sometimes need everyone involved), but rather they are mostly our in-house staff. Subtle to be sure.

These positions are all WORK-FROM-HOME, but candidates must reside in the USA. All positions are to be employees (not contractors). These are full-time positions with frequent communication needs, some is ad-hoc, so we do not allow side projects, second jobs or other activities that will interfere with our work. Nice benefits and 401(k) … read on.

If any of these roles are of interest please contact us at bc-personnel@bruceclay.com. And, while these are fully work-from-home roles, we do require that you live in the United States to comply with our PEO.

Thank you!

NOTES: We are entirely a “hire-at-will” employer. Nothing here will at all be interpreted as a formal contract or in anyway limit the company from altering the descriptions or restricting at-will rights or conditions for itself or the employee. As is customary, we do not offer employment contracts or promises of employment, compensation or benefits. All positions will also require a comprehensive background check as allowed by law.

Compensation

In some states it is illegal to post a “remote” or work-from-home position without stating a salary range. In many cases the salary range will be based upon what is considered competitive, but that shifts rapidly with the economy. We have reviewed salary ranges and have generally set ours from the average to the maximum for each position. To make that a bit easier we commonly hire senior staff and we select an appropriate salary based upon many factors including most notably the experience of the candidate, the match to our needs, occasionally the time zone or other location of the candidate, and within all of that then to a comperable compensation to existing employees. It is not allowed for us to ask salary history of a candidate, but our ranges are usually accepted. Please understand that exceptional talent is desired and when located we may offer sweeteners. We can hire above or below these ranges as long as these were the intent when posted so please feel free to apply if you wish to work with us. Your mileage may vary.

Note, that the items listed here are the posted positions. And that the ranges and availability of these positions are subject to change as business conditions fluctuate. No other compensation ranges on any other website are under our control and thus please refer to this page exclusively for current ranges, postings and benefits.
