Hike was founded by Andrew Allen & Kieran Headley, two experienced SEO’s who came together to create a platform to help small businesses get started in SEO. We’re growing the team to make sure we provide the very best product and service to our users.

  • Over a decades experience in SEO supporting a variety of businesses from huge brands, such as Sony and Barclaycard, to small one-man-bands across the world. I love teaching people how they can drive more customers and leads through organic search. Being a startup ourselves we know how important this is for new businesses.

  • I’m the technical co-founder of Hike, and I’ve led the build of the platform. I’ve been doing SEO for over 9 years, having worked for clients either at an agency, or freelance. Helping startups & small businesses is fantastic as their products are often unique, and I’m super excited to show them how to use this to their advantage.
