Why work at POD Marketing?

POD Marketing is an agency that has been identified by Google as one of the fastest growing in Canada. We are a Premier Partner with Google and that comes with some perks! Our work environment is fast paced but we take the time to have coffee and get to know one another. We work for each other, which is a rare thing to find in today’s world.

We provide a flexible work schedule, the ability to work from home, a stocked beer (or soda) fridge, a Virtual Reality Room (HTC Vive anyone?), full benefits paid for and the ability to grow your career. Our team works directly with clients and therefore helps impact their business directly. The work that we do is actually visible with the clients we work with. Oh, and there’s free parking. So… after all this I must ask you – why not work for POD Marketing?

POD Marketing is looking to hire a Search Specialist to join our growing (and amazing!) team of digital marketing experts. We are looking for the right person, so even if you don’t have the exact experience qualifications we’ve listed below, apply anyways – you (and we) never know unless you do!

So what does a Search Specialist do?

At POD Marketing, a Search Specialist is someone who has successfully helped small to medium sized businesses grow their business through the power of paid search campaigns on Google, Yahoo, Bing, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.

This person typically doesn’t exude joy in their job, though they tend to smile slightly when they see a campaign reach a level of performance unseen by mankind.
