Get a Haircut and Get a REAL Job

Pole Position Marketing is hiring for two positions:

  • SEO Specialists
  • Social Media / WOM Marketer

Neither job requires a hair cut, but they are both Reno-centric positions. Which means that if you don’t live in the Reno area or are not willing to move here then you need not apply. I’ll provide job details below, but first…

If you are interested, but not a local, making a move to a new community can be, well, scary. You never know what might happen, right? No worries. We have a solution. We are willing to hire the right person on a sub-contract basis for a limited period of time. This will give us a chance to see what you can do and give you a chance to test us out as well. If things work well then we seal the deal with a full-time, in-house position with benefits.

You can apply to either or both positions by emailing info (at) polepositionmarketing.com
