Brandsight is looking to hire someone in an Account Executive role, according to a job opening posted recently on LinkedIn. Because GoDaddy acquired Brandsight earlier this year, the job listing is under the GoDaddy branding. This is a work from home remote job (at least for the time being), and the location is the United States or United Kingdom.
Here’s the description of what the job entails:
“You will be responsible for generating new business relationships on behalf of the company and will nurture prospects through the purchase cycle from beginning to end. We are looking for an individual with strong communication skills that has an interest in being part of a fast moving and growing company focused on working with some of the most well-known companies in the world to manage their digital assets. It is of critical importance that you’re committed to solving customers problems and to working internally and externally so that Brandsight clients are the most delighted and loyal in the industry. You will work directly with our Brandsight Founder as well as other members of the Brandsight team. The position will require approximately 20% of time spent on travel.”
One of the requirements for applicants is domain industry experience. In fact, the company would like someone with a “Minimum of four years’ experience in the domain name industry, preferably in the corporate market.” I would imagine someone with experience at another domain management firm or someone working as a domain portfolio manager at a Fortune 500 company would be a good candidate for the job.
This job opportunity was posted on LinkedIn a week ago, and there are 65 applicants so far.
“The position will require approximately 20% of time spent on travel.”
Lol. We’re looking for someone fool enough to spend a lot of time on airplanes and expect that people are going to want to meet with you.
I would imagine travel will not happen until the pandemic is resolved or under control. The job opening, I would think, is permanent, so travel is expected when things open. I highly doubt any companies are allowing in-person visits anyway.
