5 Reasons You Want to Work at Search Influence
January 21st, 2016 by
Perhaps the single most valuable component to an enjoyable work environment is the people with whom you will work every day. Upon entering the Search Influence office space to interview for a position on the content team, I was consumed by the company culture on display. From the art on the walls to the big, bright orange couch, I knew this was a space I would enjoy coming to every day, and I knew I had to get this job.
1. Co-Workers: I’ve Got Friends in All the Right Places
People often ask me what I love the most about working at Search Influence. I never hesitate to say that the people I call my co-workers make even the toughest workdays delightful, and that is definitely something to give a sweet, humble brag about! If you don’t like who you work with, it doesn’t matter what you’re doing—it’s not going to be pleasant, right? The regularly scheduled team-building events and ever-evolving, even encouraged camaraderie of Search Influence definitely speaks for itself, and you just know it the moment you walk into the office.
2. A Decade of Honorable Company Culture
Along with a large staff of genuinely great folks, Search Influence boasts a decade of applause-worthy company culture. As the largest online marketing company on the Gulf Coast, Search Influence was commended for being a breastfeeding-friendly workplace champion, as well as having been selected for the 2015 Inner City 100 by Fortune and the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City.
3. Training: Get Paid to Learn the Ins and Outs of SEO
Perhaps one of the most beneficial parts about working for Search Influence is how much you’ll learn upon getting the green light. To put this into perspective, just last year we provided over 14,000 hours of job training to 36 new hires.
4. Grow with Us in this Expanding Industry
As the ultra-competitive industry of online marketing continues to grow expeditiously, we do, too. In fact, just last year, Search Influence was named one of America’s fastest-growing private companies for the fifth time by Inc. 5000. As previously mentioned, the ICIC and Fortune also selected Search Influence for the 2015 Inner City 100, a list of the fastest-growing inner city businesses in the nation. With a current staff of 85 full-time, in-house employees and 125 freelance writers, our sights are set for further expansion in 2016.
5. Power to the She in Tech: 70% of Our Staff Members Are Women
Even in today’s age, men outnumber women 7 to 3 in the technology industry. However, at Search Influence, we like to break stereotypes and advocate for women empowerment and gender equality. Having said that, we love to share that women make up a whopping 70% of our staff. Our COO and co-founder, Angie Scott, recently earned the title of 2015 Woman of the Year by City Business.
