Welcome to another post from our "Meet the FindLaw Team " series. "Meet the FindLaw Team" provides insight into the day-to-day lives of our colleagues. Today we feature FindLaw Senior Project Leader Andrew Hausten. Get to know Andrew by reading about his experiences at FindLaw below.
What is your current title?
I am a Senior Project Leader.
When did you join the FindLaw team/how did you get here?
I have been with FindLaw for over four years and was referred by a friend. My friend's excitement as to where Findlaw was going in terms of growth opportunity and the overall positive environment made it an easy decision to apply for an account management position where I originally started.
What interests you most about lawyer marketing or your functional area?
The constant change in online marketing and search engine optimization makes the business we're in challenging. For instance, with Google changing their algorithm several times each year, our clients' visibility can be affected. When a firm sees their rankings fluctuate due to changes, I've had the website reviewed, explained to the firm why the website's rankings were affected and offered a solution. I enjoy the constant innovation whether it's with FindLaw products, or strategies around a portfolio and website.
What activities does your work day typically involve?
Throughout each day I'll work on several different projects that will range from reviewing a website and product mix for an underperforming website, to helping resolve technical issues. With our new structure, I get the opportunity to work on most projects with a team involving an SEO analyst, designer, and content writer. I believe this is a great opportunity as we can grow and learn from each other.
What are your interests outside of FindLaw?
I unfortunately went to a few Minnesota Twins baseball games this year,* although being at the stadium still made the games enjoyable. Like all Minnesotans, I love summer and spending as much time outside as possible. Going up north and spending the day on a boat is my idea of a perfect weekend.
*Editor's note: The Twins finished last in their division.
