About Us

About the agency, its culture, goals

Would you like to join us?

We are an agency that embraces opportunity when it comes to us. We hold our heads high with integrity in the field of marketing, and we are transparent with who we are and what we do. We believe in honesty with each other and with our clients. It produces a great place to work.

Our Difference

Why Choose Us? Our Unique Difference

Embrace Opportunity

The SEO insights we offer are all about creating opportunity. To rise above your competitors, get in front of the right customers and carve out a unique space on the web. We are so confident that you will see the opportunity and results that we have month to month agreements, and don’t believe in long lock-in contracts like agencies that can’t back themselves.

Search intent

In the digital space as well as in the day-to-day. We won’t work on campaigns we don’t think we can achieve results for, not everyone is in good shape for SEO and we turn away dozens of campaigns a month, roughly 50% of all enquiries we get. We don’t take shortcuts – we’re with you for the long game.

Trends

We make SEO success affordable and give you full campaign visibility plus comprehensive monthly reporting. You’ll know how your website is performing and the results you’re getting in a way you’ll understand. We don’t just do the work, we educate you so that you understand.

Fun!

We take our work seriously, but not ourselves. We want you to take you to SEO places you’ve never been before AND help you enjoy the journey as it unfolds. We’re here to help you find a better way to do business.

WHAT WE LOOK FOR

What we look for in our next Hawk

We want someone who is passionate about SEO. That might sound odd, but once you get into it, it is fascinating and exciting. Getting real results for clients, thanks to SEO, needs to excite you and drive you.

PASSIONATE

We’re looking for someone with a genuine interest in SEO and all the cool stuff you can achieve with it. We want to see you thrive and want to grow your career with us.

DOWN TO EARTH

You need to be good at what you do and be open to helping others and getting stuck in. We’re real people, and you are too. Understand the work, don’t burn yourself out trying to do everything. You know when to ask for help.

LOVE LEARNING & CHALLENGING YOURSELF

When you join StudioHawk, it is only the beginning of what you can learn, where you can take your career. Challenge yourself, build your knowledge base, and then pass that knowledge on through training sessions and presentations to the team.

LOVE MAKING A DIFFERENCE

You want to see WINS for your clients. You want to work hard, see results and see the smiles on the face of others when you change their lives. Honestly, a small business spending $500 with us a month, and you can increase traffic and increase their cash flow? That is huge.

BIG ON PERSONAL GROWTH

Learning new skills, working with the team, you will grow as a person, and we encourage that. We want to see you grow as a person, as an employee as an expert in your field. We will back you all the way.

HUMBLENESS

Check your ego at the door though, we’re not looking for that here. We do love people with talent, but we don’t like people who think they’re better than any body else.

FROM THE HAWKs

Testimonials
from the Hawks

“I joined StudioHawk in the first half of 2021. They had seen a growing need for a dedicated Content Team and hired me to create the content creation process, and build that SEO Content Team. That process has been far more successful than I could have imagined. The work is growing and the team is growing around me.

I came on board knowing what SEO Copywriting was, but I still learned a lot more about it. I understand better the importance of SEO content and the power it has when combined with an SEO strategy. I understand how well it combines with the technical SEO work the StudioHawk team provides for our customers.

The culture here is the best I’ve seen and worked with. They welcomed me with gifts, they champion all your wins, they celebrate achievements. It is happy and upbeat. All that positivity reflects in how they want to get wins for their clients, which they also celebrate.”

Matthew Farmer Content Manager

“Ever meet a person and think where have you been my whole life? Well, that person for me was SEO! SEO is a skill that has empowered me to help Australian businesses of all sizes, from an iconic Aussie retailer like The Reject Shop to Asset Building Systems a local builder in NSW. More importantly, StudioHawk’s culture has allowed me to progress to where I want to be, uplift others around me, and be a part of a culture that is always fun and supportive. If you’re NOT looking for an average SEO agency, you’ve come to the right nest.”

Charbel Raffoul Senior SEO Specialist

“I started my journey at StudioHawk as a Junior SEO Specialist in early 2020 at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, had one day in the office, then faced the challenge of learning SEO and getting to know my team remotely. But my team at StudioHawk was with me every step of the way, training and fostering my growth. The skills I’ve picked up as well as the culture are not like anywhere I’ve experienced before.

And within my first year, I was lucky enough to have been a part of TWO award-winning SEO campaigns!”

Chloe Chiang SEO Specialist

“I have absolutely loved working with the team at StudioHawk, not only have I progressed professionally but also personally since my time here. I have had the opportunity to progress from just working 3 days a week to now full-time and managing campaigns, building out processes, and gaining a wealth of knowledge into the SEO world. Prior to my position, I had very little knowledge about SEO, however now I am able to run campaigns and strategise in order to optimise client’s websites.

This is only possible because of the incredible training that StudioHawk offers. Nothing makes me happier than working with clients and transforming their website, which in turn transforms their business too. Building relationships is one of my core values and at StudioHawk I am not only able to do that with clients but with the team too. StudioHawk continues to blow me away with how much each person cares for and supports one another, it is such an honour to be a part of the team.”

Toni Levin SEO Specialist

“In the space of a year at StudioHawk, I became an SEO specialist managing multiple campaigns and given responsibilities that would take years to attain anywhere else.

I am specialising in eCommerce SEO, and can be found geeking out over analytics data to unveil opportunities!

Our UK team is small but mighty! We are continuously bringing wonderful clients in exciting industries on board, who are keen to work alongside us and learn from us which is honestly so cool. Our UK team have a quest to find the best coffee and pastry in Shoreditch in our breaks, but our beloved Flour & Flowers café reign supreme every time <3 The UK and AU teams are super connected, even continents apart which is the best! I feel like I know all of my fellow AU hawks so well, even though I’ve yet to meet them in person! We support each other through, celebrate wins together and when time permits, hop on for a global team to catch up.

Having a global team of SEO specialists in every branch of SEO and are passionate to share their knowledge and work has definitely accelerated my growth here!”

Caitlin Hathaway London SEO Specialist

“My time so far at StudioHawk so far has been nothing short of amazing. After completing my studies in Marketing and Digital Advertising I managed some eCommerce websites alongside working in hospitality. Throughout this period I developed a strong interest in SEO and long behold I started at StudioHawk.

StudioHawk is like opening Pandora’s box to all things SEO. The wealth of knowledge that the team has taught me and continued to be invaluable. For me the thing that sets StudioHawk apart is the culture. Constant Friday night catch ups (over zoom atm) and fun activities all the time really allow you to have fun but also motivates you to work harder. 

My time at StudioHawk has been great. I’ve progressed quickly with the help of my team and when reflecting can’t believe how much I’ve learnt. I’ve not only developed SEO skills but client management and life long skills. Working on small, medium and big accounts in all kinds of industries has given me such a breadth of experiences. I’m keen to continue onwards and upwards!”
