SEOmoz Offers $12,000 Bounty for Software Engineers

SEOmoz Looks to Expand Its Engineering Team With Premier Talent by Offering Aggressive Bounty to Anyone Who Refers Software Engineers

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - February 22, 2011) - SEOmoz, the leading SEO software company, has launched an ambitious recruiting program for top-notch software engineers. The company will pay $12,000 to anyone who refers a software engineer that is hired by the company -- including the engineer themselves.

"We're profitable, growing quickly, and want to expand our engineering team to accelerate our ability to develop new products," said Rand Fishkin, CEO and Co-founder. "We've already got an amazing team of engineers, we just need more."

"We're looking for a wide range of experiences from just out of school to ten years in the business," said Kate Matsudaira, SEOmoz's VP of Engineering. The SEOmoz engineering team presents an environment well suited to creative software engineers. "We attract people who get excited about creating systems as complex and powerful as the big guys, but with a fraction of their resources. These kinds of engineers naturally develop solutions to problems other engineers would claim are impossible."

Located in downtown Seattle, SEOmoz offers competitive salaries and excellent benefits including four weeks of vacation, health care, dental and vision, and complimentary home internet and cell phone service. Engineers hired through the program will also receive a $5,000 shopping spree to be used for equipment in their home or office to do their work for SEOmoz, and up to $10,000 for relocation expenses.

In 2010, SEOmoz achieved over $5.5 million in revenue and added more than 3,000 new customers. The company expects to more than double that performance in 2011. "2010 was an excellent year for SEOmoz and I've never been so excited about the future opportunity -- with our success thus far and the $12,000 bounty, we expect to build an exceptional team that will make 2011 even more exciting," said Fishkin.
