Amazon was one of the largest applicants for new gTLD domain name extensions, having applied to manage 76 new TLDs. Although the company is not going to operate all 76 of these extensions, the company is looking to hire a Project Manager for its Amazon Registry Services, Inc.
According to a job posting on Amazon.com, here’s the first paragraph of the Project Manager job description:
Over the next several years, the fabric of the Internet is going to fundamentally change, and Amazon will play a significant part in this change. Amazon applied to be the registry for 76 new generic Top Level Domains (gTLD) and is looking for a Project Manager to join Amazon’s registry team to help develop and launch innovative business models across Amazon’s new domain program.
Although domain industry or ICANN experience isn’t absolutely necessary for this position, the company would like someone with a “[d]eep understanding of the domain name space.” The company would also prefer a candidate that has “[i]ndustry experience with registries/registrars/ICANN.” There are quite a few basic and preferred qualifications for this job opening.
The salary and benefits for this position were not published, so you’ll need to inquire to learn those details. This position will be based in Amazon’s Seattle, Washington office. I am unsure of how old this job description is, but I presume it would have been taken down if the company was able to fill the position already.
Thank you to gpmgroup for sharing this job opening with me.
