Does this sound like you? You're an analytical thinker who's able to seamlessly connect two pieces of the marketing puzzle that few people do well: the data and the customer.

The data includes all the metrics you've had success increasing (or decreasing!) in the past: Clicks, CTR, CPA, ROAS, Quality Score, Reach, you name it.

The customer includes understanding our target audience on a deep level, and knowing where and how to find them online! This doesn't mean an avatar or a rough Google Docs description. It means knowing them by internalizing customer testimonials, listening to phone calls, and maybe even making some yourself. Bottom line: You can think like the customer!

As the new Search Engine Marketing Manager at AlgaeCal, these pieces of the marketing puzzle will be second nature to you. You'll know how to find the right media, at the best cost, for the maximum conversion. And you'll be able to pull up numbers as needed by you or your colleagues, and be able to make intelligent decisions based on reams of data. You are in the top 1% of detail-oriented people!

You're also comfortable with advertising and reporting on these platforms (minimum): Google Adwords, YouTube, Bing, and native advertising (Adroll, Tapnative, or some DSP software).

This position requires a minimum of 3 years' experience building growth through Paid Search marketing channels.


If you have what it takes, you'll join a team of passionate, work-hard-play-hard professionals. You'll grow with them at a company that has laid a multi-million dollar foundation of revolutionary natural health products backed by published clinical studies. That means they dramatically and measurably improve human health.

You'll work alongside, and learn from, top marketing professionals that have helped grow our company by more than 10 times in the last 5 years! We're the leader in our niche

  • and our goal is to continue on this path providing you an unparalleled opportunity for learning and promotion.

Yes, we're one of Canada's fastest growing companies

  • and it's in large part due to the success of our top shelf marketing team
  • so if you want to learn from the best, you need to join the best!


If you dread the sound of your alarm in the morning, you know you're in the wrong job. But at AlgaeCal, waking up for work won't be a problem...

Why? Because every day at AlgaeCal presents exciting challenges to test your skills. Every day brings opportunities to work with team members who care as much for you as they do our customers. And every day lets you have the chance to genuinely help people overcome bone loss.

There isn't a rigid job description for our employees and every day is different. But here are a few of the primary tasks you can look forward to while working from our office in Mt. Pleasant:

  • Lead AlgaeCal's Paid and Organic Search strategy and manage our Paid Search campaigns end-to-end
  • Own a marketing budget, create and oversee a channel roadmap focusing on optimizations, testing, and expansion.
  • Be able to accurately forecast, manage, and advise on budgets for annual planning processes.
  • Proven track record in hitting performance targets and scaling platforms
  • Be able to develop and maintain key performance reports for internal stakeholders


  • 3+ years of experience building growth through Paid Search marketing channels
  • Experience handling complex SEM strategies, high campaign volume, large budgets ($2.4M+ annually) and driving quantifiable results
  • Experience with Google Data Studio or similar Data Viz software (Tableau, Looker etc.)
  • A firm grasp of data analysis, A/B Testing, and performance marketing
  • Proven history of working and fostering strong relationships with vendors (AdRoll, other DSPs etc.)
  • Strong interpersonal skills that encourage partnership, promote enthusiasm, and foster strategic thinking

Working at AlgaeCal is stimulating, fast-paced, and rewarding. And just like any job, it can have its challenging moments. But one thing it will never be is boring.

Where do you fit in AlgaeCal's Marketing Team?

You will start by joining the SEM team and helping lead our acquisition efforts through Paid Search. As the owner of one of AlgaeCal's most productive and efficient channels, you will have a direct impact on the growth of the business. This role will focus on both the day-to-day campaign management and the long-term strategic planning and forecasting. As the channel expert, you will be the go-to teammate for all things paid search.

Under your leadership, you will need to manage large-scale Google, Bing, and other paid campaigns. You'll shine by translating strategy into concrete plans with agencies and internal partners, leveraging data-driven insights to design rigorous campaign and feed experiments, and iterating upon campaign & audience segmentation approaches to refine paid investment efficiency.

You'll need to accomplish all this while navigating the challenging Health & Wellness niche of PPC. That said, you will be coached and supported by our Directors of Acquisition and Customer Experience who have proven records of success in several paid platforms including Facebook, Google Ads, and Amazon. This promises to be an exciting and challenging role!
