SEO Content Writer

Marketing Glenview, Illinois


Description

Abt Electronics has an immediate opening for SEO Content Writer. We're looking for innovative, experienced SEO writers who know how to create articles that will rank on Google and drive purchase intent through high converting, SEO-optimized copy. You are obsessed with data and work quickly and accurately. You bring expertise, knowledge and fun to a variety of topics - whether you’re writing about “How to Organize Your Laundry Room” or optimizing a “Gas vs. Electric Dryer” article.

Abt Electronics is a family owned company that has been in business since 1936 and continues to experience strong growth year after year.

This is the new age of content writing. Search engines are the easiest and most frequent way that consumers explore, assess, and make purchases online. Outside of paid placements, how does a business "show up" in the "organic" search results that are algorithmically determined? That's where Abt's Search Engine Optimization Team comes in - optimizing for the best possible placement in organic search results pages.

We are looking for a strong writer with an inquisitive nature who can find something intrinsically interesting with any assignment. This role requires someone who can be creative with content strategy, who is self-motivated, organized and possesses strong self-editing skills. Ability to effectively collaborate with internal teams and clients is crucial for success.
