After posting my article about domain industry job openings, I received an email from my contact at NameMedia informing me that the company has a number of job listings that I didn’t include in my article. Since there are several opportunities at the company (includes Afternic, Buy Domains, and SmartName), I thought I would post an article in case people are interested.
With the US unemployment rate close to 10%, or maybe more than 10% if you count the people who are out of work, it’s good to see a company like NameMedia hiring. If you are a part time domain investor who does this as a hobby and you have the skill set for one of these positions, you should consider sending in your resume and applying.
The positions are all based out of NameMedia’s Waltham, Massachusetts office. You can find all job openings now and in the future on the NameMedia careers page. Here are the current job listings and some information about each.
