Manta's 30 million monthly visitors and 2-a-day releases will keep you on your toes and making a difference. So bring your big brain (both halves) to Manta and help us evolve the world's largest small business networking platform. Fast, lean, complex, collaborative, meaningful, measurable, and tangible-this is what innovation feels like.

  • First-hand experience playing a key role in building a large, online traffic base from diverse sources.


What you'll be doing:

  • Identify & prioritize traffic building opportunities across multiple channels and platforms with a focus on organic search engine traffic

  • Perform sophisticated quantitative analysis, eager to look under the hood and identify problems and opportunities

What's in it for you:

  • Your work matters here! We're not making more money for an insurance company or a bank, but regular people making business decisions at their kitchen table... the work you do affects the small business owners and their families.
  • A career at one of THE most trafficked sites on the web today - Manta gets more traffic than Apple, CNN and the New York Times! Each month 30 million+ unique visitors come to the Manta site.
