about website managers

To be a website manager, you need to make sure the website is up and running at all times, address usability issues, ensure content and graphics are aesthetically pleasing, and ensure the overall user experience is aligned with company objectives.

You oversee all activities and interactions of the website, and it’s up to you to ensure everything runs smoothly. If you have the experience, skills, and technical knowledge, contact Randstad Canada today to explore website manager jobs in your area.

what website manager jobs entails

Website manager jobs are often unique based on the industry, size of company, and demands. For example, an ecommerce website may require more day-to-day attention than a more static website.
