Job Description

Hunker believes good design should be a part of everyday life—and that you don't have to be an expert to make it happen.  We are looking for a Design SEO Editor to help us grow our search traffic and manage many of the moving pieces of our SEO project.

A big vision calls for a big job.  As we grow, our need for a Design SEO Editor grows with us.

Additionally, we have performance focused brands in key categories such as Travel, Pets, and DIY (OnlyInYourState, Cuteness, eHow). Our media and marketplace brands are authentic and authoritative, reaching a large and growing passionate audience. 

We work in a fun, collaborative environment that is diverse, adventurous, and open-minded. We look for proactive, accountable people focused on continuous learning and growth to push themselves and our businesses forward. Check us out here.
