Long Bio

Kevin Indig grew up in the oldest city of Germany, Trier, as the son of an American father and a German mother. As an avid gamer, Kevin became the guy to figure out how to build a website when DSL internet became affordable. He got soaked into the digital world that is the internet, which ultimately led him to SEO. Soon, he designed and sold websites to other gamers.

After studying business in Bad Honnef (Germany), Kevin got a job as a trainee at the enterprise consultancy TRG - The Reach Group in Hamburg where he learned SEO from the ground up and how large companies work. He got promoted to consultant 9 months into the role.

Shortly after, Kevin joined Atlassian to grow organic traffic to Atlassian’s wide portfolio of products (Jira, Trello, Confluence, Bitbucket, etc.) and worked his way up to lead the technical SEO team.

Ready to step into his next box, Kevin joined G2 as VP SEO & Content in 2019 where he led a team of 35 writers and SEOs and doubled organic traffic within 2 years.
