About Sean

Sean Malseed, who are you?

I'm a guy in Philadelphia who makes things. I love technology, programming, art, and trying to figure out Google.

Currently, I'm the Director of Strageic Development at, which is a competitive analytics tool used by SEOs and marketing agencies across the world. I handle our API and data integrations, which has given me a chance to work with great companies like, Conductor, Wordtracker, Brightedge and many more.

I have a pretty sweet speaking schedule which takes me across the world, presenting at conferences such as SMX, PubCon, Search Marketing Day, SES, and more.

I also write apps for iOS and Android, and I've got a really nerdy one that's pretty popular. It's a Magic: The Gathering life counter called Awesome Magic Life Counter (iTunes Store) (Google Play)
