JOB TITLE: Head of Partnerships

LOCATION: 100% Remote (PST-EST required – USA or Canada preferred)

JOB TYPE: Full-Time, Permanent

REPORTS TO: Head of Operations


Everyone knows that person who makes you feel like the most important human in the world. They spend time with you, listen to you without judgment, give you their undivided attention, and genuinely want the best for you. If you are this person, please keep reading.

SearchTides is seeking a seasoned Head of Partnerships to build and nurture relationships, organize events, and to provide value to our clients and partners (current and future). This individual will work closely with the Head of Operations and CEO, primarily focusing on growth initiatives and developing strategic partnerships.

About SearchTides

Ash Ketchum once said, “If you’re not first, you’re last.” Or maybe it was someone’s dad. Either way, SearchTides really takes that to heart. In an industry that is notoriously plagued by mediocrity and complacency, we’ve taken the opposite approach. Over the last ten years, we’ve steadily calibrated and perfected our product, ensuring we can actually (well, metaphorically) move mountains and get incredible SEO results for our clients.

At SearchTides, we have an unusually strong history of getting amazing results for our clients. We genuinely believe that we should be a preferred partner or vendor for every major player in the world of agencies and companies, and we are looking for the person who can meet us, agree with that assertion, and then can make it happen.


What does a day in this role look like?

An ongoing KPI to establish new partnerships

As the most important and consistent initiative you have, you’ll develop and execute a comprehensive partnership strategy to build and nurture relationships with existing and potential partners, including non-SEO service companies and marketing agencies.


Nurturing existing relationships

You’ll have an ongoing charge to figure out new ways to further working relationships with our existing partners and any recently developed ones


Managing SearchTides monthly digital events

Less of a daily focus, SearchTides hosts monthly digital events. You will own this effort as it will tuck into new partnership opportunities.

For the above initiatives around new and existing partnerships, it may make sense to travel, and we want you to be open to that 🙂


About You:

First, aligning with our company values is the minimum requirement to have a conversation: 

  • Taking ownership
  • Communication
  • Integrity
  • Empathy
  • Persistence
  • Always Learning
  • Stay Humble and Modest


Sound like you? Great! This should also sound like you:

  • Have a proven track record establishing partnerships with agencies and service companies at scale
  • You are an ambitious, autonomous person who understands that they will be building out a new channel primarily on their own


And, these should too:

  • Anticipating, and solving problems, are at the core of who you are
  • Strong networking and relationship-building skills (you already have a network of your own as well)
  • You know how to speak with company stakeholders who have been in the SEO/agency world as long (or maybe even longer!) than you
  • Experience working remotely
  • You never tire of meeting new people and learning how we can help them

The Other Cool Stuff:

At SearchTides, we’ve been pioneers in the remote work arena long before it became a global trend. Since 2015, we’ve mastered the art of fostering a vibrant culture in a virtual environment. 

We believe in balancing professional excellence with personal well-being, ensuring our team members thrive both on and off the screen. 

Our commitment to a positive and engaging remote work experience is unwavering, and we make sure that fun and productivity go hand in hand.


What Sets Us Apart:

  • Monthly Guest Speakers (everything from nurturing houseplants to mixology)
  • Generous Time Off:
    • Ten company-wide holidays per year
    • 15 days of PTO
    • Winter Break – last week of the year off (yes, it’s PTO)
    • Birthday Leave – you get your birthday off, and you come back to birthday wishes in Slack 🙂
