About Hip eCommerce

Within the $200 Billion worldwide collectibles market, there are many unique categories. At Hip eCommerce, our goal is to deliver a reimagined customer experience for both buyers and sellers. How are we doing that? We create category-specific marketplaces, built from the ground up, that understand how collectors browse, search and collect each type of collectible. We currently operate three marketplaces--HipComic, HipStamp, and HipPostcard--and plan to grow into other categories in the future. Since our 2016 launch, our marketplaces have gained 2,000+ Sellers, 200,000+ Buyers, and 12 Million+ Listings and we just raised a $5 Million+ Series A round to expand our team and continue building the next great e-commerce company. Are you ready to build it with us?

We’re a fully distributed company, which means our entire team works remotely full-time. By removing the geographic requirements of an office, we’re able to hire the best, which means you’re working with the best. With team members across the United States, Philippines, and South America, we foster a culture that values collaboration and connection. To help facilitate that, our team members are primarily working standard Eastern Time hours.

About the Marketing Team

At Hip eCommerce, we are building a world-class marketing team, combining expertise in eCommerce and marketplaces to best serve buyers and sellers across the world. We believe that through a collaborative team and “an all hands on deck” approach, we will build an infrastructure to support the company’s rapid growth both within our current markets and beyond as we expand into new areas of collectibles. 

About the Role

As an SEO strategist, you will be the utility tool of search to drive awareness and acquisition of Hip eCommerce’s collectible marketplaces. Your main KPI may be ranking on search engines, but you know that SEO is more than that. You’re technical but also creative. From research to site structure to content to analysis - not only can you develop a results driven strategy, but you can also roll your sleeves up and drive the implementation and execution. This role is the front line, the top of our funnel, to getting Hip in front of collectors in niche markets the world over. Are you up to the challenge?

How you’ll spend your time

  • Drive and carry out our search strategy to help us achieve our growth goals for 2021 and beyond.

  • Partner with the digital marketing and product teams to suggest and implement strategies for content development and website structure.

  • Perform keyword research to optimize existing content and discover new opportunities that drive the most valuable traffic to Hip eCommerce.

  • Monitor and analyze dashboards, reports, and key tools like Google Search Console in order to mark key areas of importance for strategic growth.

  • Write effective SEO content, from onsite CTAs to offsite link building campaigns.

  • Stay up to date on current SEO strategies that keep us aligned with white hat trends and developments.

We’re excited about you if you:

  • Have a proven track record at driving MQLs, ideally in a niche market, and you’ve helped build search strategy. 3-5 years experience preferred.

  • Own your personal story of success. You’re autonomous and know the tools to pull the levers that drive growth.

  • Love connecting the dots from data to results. Strategize, analyze, deliver, repeat.

  • Have passion and grit. It's also very important to be organized, a good communicator, and empathetic.

Don’t let impostor syndrome or a confidence gap stop you from applying. We encourage you to apply for this position even if you feel you do not meet all the requirements. Hip eCommerce is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.

What else is in it for you?

Competitive salary and stock options (for US employees) is just the beginning; we also have a number of Benefits & Perks designed to support our team members beyond just their paycheck. We have unlimited personal/vacation days, a healthcare plan 100% paid by the company for employees, and a 401k (US employees). We also offer monthly wellness, internet, and music allowances. Our team is entirely remote (that’s right, no more commuting) and we do our best to set you up for success by providing home office equipment when you join the team. Once you’ve been using your work laptop for 3 years, we’ll replace it with a new one, wipe it of any business-related work and it becomes your own property to do with as you see fit. We may be remote, but we still have team pizza parties, movie & book clubs, and home deliveries of treats and more to keep things fun.
