Name: Kian Jonas
Job Role: SEO Team Leader
How long have you worked at DNRG and what attracted you to the role?
I’ve worked at DNRG for 2 years and 10 months! I was originally drawn to the role as it combined two of my interest, business and computers.
What do you enjoy about working at DNRG?
The people! I’ve made some genuine friends from my job at DNRG and that’s one thing that will stick with me for good.
What’s the most interesting project that you’re currently working on?
At the moment it’s Trilogy Print’s Platinum SEO Campaign. This Project constantly keeps me on my toes. Print is a sector in which I had no previous experience prior to working on the project and since the very start I’ve found myself constantly adapting my approach to match the user’s trends that I see within the analytics data.
What’s the project you’re most proud of
Trilogy Print’s Platinum SEO Campaign (again!). I am very proud of this project because I’ve helped to turn the client’s website from a simple 3-page site that showed only the basic company information into a site that generates a high volume of leads for the business. This was the first client I ever acted as an account manager for and with it came great pride as I managed to support the client throughout the slower pandemic months. This continues to the day, where the client’s website keeps him busier than ever.
Are there any developments in your field you’re especially excited about?
The constant push on user experience. I do love the direction the SEO world is heading in. Soon enough we will be saying goodbye to “how to optimise for Google’s Spider” and welcoming “how to optimise our sites for PEOPLE”
What’s your favourite part about being back in the office?
I promise I’m not a broken record… The people!
What do you like to do away from work?
Fishing for carp, pike, zander, barbel, chub, bass and pretty much everything that swims.
Who’s the funniest in the office?
Ummm it would have to be Jack Carey. He’s a very chilled individual but comes out with some great one-liners.
If you could have 3 people at a dinner party who would you bring and why?
Alan Blair, Terry Hearn and Des Tailor – These are a bunch of fishing legends. 🎣
