Last week, we reported that Google is hiring an SEO to work as an employee in their Google Cloud Platform division.
This weekend, I was forwarded an email from an SEO I know that shows Google is now hiring SEOs on a 12-month contract basis to work on the Google Store website at store.google.com.
The contract job means Google will not be hiring you directly, but instead, a third-party company will be your employer. You will, however, be working on-site in Google’s offices at Mountain View, California. The job title is “SEO Specialist/Project Manager II,” and the SEO contractor will be responsible for marketing Google’s devices, i.e., Nexus phones, tablets, Android Wear watches, Chromebooks, Nest, Chromecast, accessories, etc., through Google’s e-commerce storefront at store.google.com.
I do not want to reveal too much information here, but the job requires at least 3 years of SEO experience, technical know how when it comes to schema, and managing large-scale SEO efforts.
I don’t see a way to apply for this job, rather, the agency is reaching out to SEOs they think would be good at the job. I believe it pays around $60 per hour, which I am told is low for the Silicon Valley region.
