Role: SEO Marketing Specialist
A little about myself: I moved to Melbourne four months ago after spending some time travelling. I was supposed to be starting a role in London in September, but booked a flight here from Indonesia two weeks before I was supposed to be going back to the UK!
My first memory of the internet: My brother and I would take half hour slots on the computer to use the instant messenger MSN. I would log on to his account when it was my turn, and when his friends spoke I would be like, “Ah sorry, Alex isn’t here now, it’s Abi, he must have left it logged in,” so that I got to talk to cool older boys…who wouldn’t reply…
Most rewarding part of my Job: It’s really interesting to have a hands-on technical role, as well as having the knowledge of how SEO is implemented and seeing the outcome that follows. I like that SEO is constantly changing – the tech team members are always keen to share their knowledge, so I get to learn something new every day.
Hobbies: Running, the gym, reading, hiking, yoga, drinking gin and forcing friends into eating vegan cuisine with me.
Interesting fact: I did an 18,000 ft sky dive in Franz Josef whilst in New Zealand above the Fox Glacier. I was super cocky about it leading up to it because I thought it was going to be cancelled due to the weather, then when I was in the plane I was just crying and refusing to jump. The guy just had to throw me out in the end – it was hell but also the best. The video really is tragic.
