Disney Hiring Technical Project Specialist, Domain Names

In August of 2019, I wrote about a job opportunity involving domain names at Disney. Yesterday, Disney posted another job opening on LinkedIn that has a focus on domain name management at the company. Disney is looking to hire a Technical Project Specialist, Domain Names. This Mid-Senior level position is based out of Disney’s Burbank, California headquarters, although I don’t know if the company would hire a remote employee given today’s social distancing circumstances.

Here’s the description of what this job opportunity entails:

“This role will focus on request fulfillment for the many different workstreams the team handles on a day-to-day basis. This includes everything from working with customers on full product cycle requests (requirements gathering, project planning, confirming milestones, and communication with the customer) to updating status on daily request flow. In addition, this role is responsible for project management, including everything from simple domain name registrations to complex DNS redelegations that require coordination with multiple teams. There will be extensive cross-training with other team members to occasionally provide out of office coverage.”

It does not look like Disney needs someone with vast domain industry experience for this role, but basic knowledge about domain names is a requirement: “Basic understanding of the domain name industry and the purpose/uses of domain names.” There are quite a few other requirements expected of job applicants, so perhaps having domain industry experience or expertise will give one candidate an edge over others.

The job listing was just posted yesterday, so there are not many applicants so far.
