This is a specific need: ALL of our analysts have over 10 years of SEO experience and are hired to perform very deep-dive analysis and consulting on sites experiencing difficult visitor traffic conditions. Seriously, we need true experts that can diagnose complex website SEO issues, and that get excited in solving SEO puzzles for a living. If your desktop is full of SEO tools we should speak.

To sum it up in one sentence, the ideal job candidate is someone who is articulate and has a strong aptitude and compelling need to perform technical SEO.
