Graeme has been in the digital marketing industry for more than 15 years. Having previously founded, grown and sold one of Europe’s largest digital marketing agencies, Graeme has now decided to focus purely on search related services.
Graeme believes that ‘search’ is both fascinating and rewarding to work on and similarly rewarding for clients. With strong growth potential as the economy continues to find its feet, Graeme is looking forward to a bright future for the sector.
Graeme says he has no time to relax. If he’s not working, he’s too busy shooting, sailing and being Dad to triplets!
Having spent more than 15 years within the digital agency environment, latterly heading up the PPC department, Jason brings a wealth of experience to Screaming Frog.
Starting out as a website programmer, and progressing through account management roles before the arrival of paid search gave Jason the perfect background to get to grips with the technology involved with tracking and analysing complex PPC campaigns.
Having worked closely with clients such as Coca-Cola Africa, WHSmith and Ebookers means he’s acutely aware what a business wants and needs from an agency and ensures that Screaming Frog delivers on all accounts.
When not staring at the screen all day, Jason can be found in his garden trying to maximise the return of his vegetable plot or finding the right keywords to control his children. One day, he may be able to do both!
When he’s not busy climbing giant walls on an obstacle course or running long distances, Matt is the go-to guy for all things PPC & social media.
After years of running campaigns in pretty much every vertical, he has learnt that although people always claim to ‘never click on those ads’, they invariably do, which is great for his clients.
He can usually be found in Google Analytics & AdWords, or failing that on Twitter. If you can’t find him in any of those places then he’s probably trying to locate the one problem breaking a ridiculous looking Excel formula. If this is the case, don’t bother him unless you have coffee & cake.
Coming from a background working in PR and digital marketing, Patrick took the step into the search world and hasn’t looked back…
Patrick’s passion and tenacity for blogger outreach and link building makes him a valuable member of the Screaming Frog team. He is excited by the continuous evolution within search, and looks forward to being a part of the industry for many years to come.
Away from the office you might find Patrick playing the guitar in his band or on the terraces of his beloved Arsenal Football Club. You can read some of Patrick’s thoughts over on patricklangridge.com.
Chris graduated university in computer science but didn’t find his vocation in life until stumbling across Screaming Frog and the world of SEO – he is forever indebted to us!
Every SEO team needs a few
nerdy technical types, and hence Chris feels very at home in the Screaming Frog environment.
If not emersed in 30 different browser windows, Chris might be found sleeping on a hill in Wales or talking
technical nerdy with his old uni mates.
Mark is a self-confessed geek who has always had a love/hate relationship with blogging, coupled with an addiction to buying domain names. Together they
are quite a potent mix, and he quickly longed to know the mysterious inner workings of search engines and what factors determined a website’s ranking.
Unfortunately, blogging took a back seat when Mark went to University to study BSc Computer Game Technology (yes, it’s a real degree), but his passion was reignited after he graduated. Working as a 3D Modeller by day and blogging by night, he quickly realised which he preferred doing.
Outside of SEO, Mark loves Manchester United, gadgets and games. When he’s not playing FIFA, he can usually be found blogging over at ManCaved.com.
Having spent seven years working in corporate and financial PR in London, Clare decided it was time for a change and found herself coming to work at Screaming Frog. This presented a new challenge and together with the SEO strategy already put in place by other members of the team, Clare is able to deliver complementary PR strategies for a variety of clients.
Outside of the office, Clare can be found around and about in Henley being a mummy, playing tennis or planning her next trip to somewhere snowy to enjoy one of her favourite pastimes of skiing.
Hailing from the wilds of southwest Wales, Stacey originally graduated with a degree in graphic communication. Since discovering the world of SEO, she’s never looked back.
She is often found creating illustrations or figuring out the intricate workings of a beautiful but enlightening infographic.
When not in the office, Stacey is a self-confessed Doctor Who fangirl, Apple nerd and keen film photographer maintaining a digital scrapbook at staceyjenkins.co.uk.
Paudy (pronounced poor-dee if you’re struggling!) graduated with a degree in business studies. After falling in love with digital marketing at university, Paudy joined the Screaming Frog team.
Paudy is fascinated by the continuously developing nature of digital marketing and social media. He’s excited to learn all there is to know about SEO and to use his creative side when thinking of link building opportunities for businesses.
Outside of the office Paudy can be found out with friends, at the Emirates stadium watching Arsenal, or playing football (wishing he played for Arsenal).
After completing a degree in English literature, Jade swapped the cobbled hills of Durham for a job at Screaming Frog.
Jade feels most at home when wielding a pen, and enjoys the challenges of writing for a variety of clients.
In her spare time, Jade can be found in the kitchen, recreating Northern classics like the almighty chicken parmo.
After graduating with a master’s degree in English and American studies, Stephen remained in Manchester where he tried to answer one of life’s ultimate questions: United or City?
Since hopping down to Henley-on-Thames to ply his trade for Screaming Frog he’s realised that more often than not the answer is Arsenal (how did that happen?).
When not enjoying the relaxing sound of clicking keys, Stephen enjoys supporting his beloved rugby team (Cymru am byth!), discovering anything new, and #moonwatching.
Lydia graduated with a degree in graphic design from Swansea Metropolitan University. Unsure about what route to take she happily stumbled across Screaming Frog and the wonderful world of SEO!
She is often found making colourful infographics at her desk, which is decorated with tiny wool hats and kinder egg toys!
When she isn’t designing, she’ll be found playing computer games and leaning how to play her much-loved guitar.
After graduating with a degree in video post-production, Joe volunteered in Zimbabwe before working as a copywriter for an online retailer. A progression into SEO for Screaming Frog was a logical career choice.
He aims to be both equally rational and creative, achieving great personal satisfaction from successful SEO campaigns.
On the weekends Joe can be found listening to Radio 4, consuming ginger or bemoaning the over-commercialisation of football. He is, therefore, ripe for the retirement home but is still in his twenties (allegedly).
Graduating with a degree in French and English, Hannah has always loved writing and now she’s lucky enough to do it as part of her job!
A firm believer that the pen is mightier than the sword, she enjoys blogging about everything from cheese (yes, cheese!) to feminism, and likes nothing more than creating new content for clients.
Outside of work, Hannah can often be found in the kitchen doing her best Mary Berry impression or getting lost in a good book.
Oliver’s earliest memory is of being rescued by a swimmer as he floated out to sea after escaping from the safety of his parents. Other near misses from toddlerdum include: scaling the safety fences at ‘Bird World’ to pat a bald eagle on the head, searching for the ‘Fat Controller’ on local railway tracks and jumping head first down the fastest flume at the local pool, pre-swimming days, with his mother leaping down after him.
Despite these early scares he managed to survive and make it here to Screaming Frog, which he and they (hopefully) are very happy about.
Always trying to push himself creatively, he loves coming up with content for clients using his off-the-wall thinking, mixed with solid business acumen to help achieve a successful link building campaign.
When he is not in the office, Oliver can be found watching WBA throw away another 3-0 lead, writing his never-to-be-finished novel or murdering Neil Young tunes on his guitar.
Graduating in mathematics with finance before joining the Screaming Frog team, Jack still wonders how he got into SEO.
Jack’s perpetual thoughts in solving the Google algorithm will continue many night’s restless sleep yet.
Removed from the desk, Jack still holds onto his Brighton past, from shooting film photography to creating bonsai.
Dan graduated university in editorial and advertising photography whilst working as a lighting and camera assistant on moving image and stills projects. He then explored financial contracting before joining the Screaming Frog team.
He now brings his eye for detail and appreciation for targets to the world of SEO and is fascinated by the possibilities within search. Dan is committed to helping the team achieve its goals.
Outside of Screaming Frog headquarters, Dan can be found working on a new programme, in the gym or being out with friends, usually watching the footy. Dan likes anything that will make him laugh, which is most things.
Although Jess graduated with a degree in English literature, she is still unable to write a decent ‘about me’ section.
After accidentally falling into the health and safety industry, (despite being neither healthy nor safe), Jess (luckily) came across the Screaming Frog team and SEO, and can now run freely with scissors, while putting to use her love of reading, writing, and research.
Happiest when scribbling out content, Jess loves the mixture-of-head-in-the-clouds thinking and down-to-earth decision making that SEO brings.
Outside of the office Jess can be found buried in a book or buried in mud and/or hay, in an attempt to ride/tame her horses.
