About Rob

Rob Ousbey is a machine for turning coffee into clever ideas.


Since May 2008, I've been an SEO Consultant (Search Marketer) for Distilled, in London.

In 2010 I moved to Seattle to manage our new American office, as VP Operations and subsequently COO. If you're looking for someone to help with the organic search marketing, paid search campaigns or social media strategy for your organisation, give me a shout.

Before internet marketing, I worked in the radio industry, for a national digital spoken word station - Oneword Radio. As Production Coordinator I produced, presented and edited a variety of programmes, as well as managing the station's online properties.

Way before that, I spent a little over a year in a research group at Shell. As a member of the Scientific Support Team, I analysed petrol ('gas' to my US friends) to make sure it was as awesome as possible. It was the first place that I learnt how to improve processes and make everyone happy.


From 2002 - 2005 I studied at Cambridge University (Clare College). My degree was 2:1, with a Part I in Engineering and Part II in Management Studies. No one has ever asked to see the certificate.
