Each month we sit down with one of our ROASTies to find out what makes them tick, what they love about their job and the aspects of our company culture that they just can’t get enough of. In the hot seat today – Thomas – Technical SEO Account Manager
I am in quite a lucky situation being around family and my partner, so my birthday revolved around eating too much cake and watching rubbish TV. My advice would be to call with family/friends and loved ones to make yourself not feel so isolated, and if you do eat a whole cake to yourself, who cares.
My role at ROAST revolves around management of my personal clients, creating individual strategies and client specific deliverables, while also reacting to the giant that is Google and keeping abreast of updates or shifts in the search landscape.
I started my career as a web developer, so having a technical focused area is something that has always interested me. I love digging down in to website technologies and diagnosing potential barriers to performance.
It is not necessarily something big like a botched migration or IA, it can be more simple in that clients accidently implement a noindex tag on a core page, or don’t understand certain technologies which cause never ending loops which deny access to search engines. The simple things can have the biggest impact.
This was a few years ago now, a friend and I came up with an idea for an online fully automated clothing brand which utilises drop shipping and a print on demand service.
I won’t tell you the name as looking back, it was a bit silly. It worked, we created the designs, found our print on demand service and got the site up and running and had one sale!
