Donuts Hiring Business Development Manager

If you or someone you know is looking for a job in the domain name business, Donuts posted a job opening for a Business Development Manager position. Donuts owns and operates just shy of 250 domain name extensions, including .Live, .Lawyer, .Fitness, and many more. The job listing can be viewed on LinkedIn.

There is no domain industry experience required for this sales-focused position, but I presume some level of domain name knowledge would be helpful. A great deal of the job emphasis is on helping partners sell the company’s domain names. Here’s an excerpt about the candidate Donuts is seeking to hire:

“We are seeking a business development rockstar, we mean ninja, to help us build partnerships and expand the market for our top-level domain extensions. This is an innovative product and it will take a fearless and creative person to make the most of the opportunities presented. Our ideal candidate has a knack for exploring markets and identifying business opportunities, loves working with customers and prospects, is able to successfully convey and articulate value propositions over the phone. This right person will thrive in a competitive business development environment, is financially driven, and has a dynamic and upbeat personality. Our business development rockstars know how to successfully and tactfully guide partners through the decision-making process to close deals rapidly. If this sounds like you, we can’t wait to hear from you!”

According to the LinkedIn job listing that was published two weeks ago, four applicants have applied for this job so far. The location of the job is listed as Los Angeles, and I am not sure if the company would consider someone to work remotely or in another corporate office.

    • I don’t buy non .com domain names as investments, but there are many businesses – particularly startups – that have no issue using alternative extensions.

    How are you going to explain to the buyers that this dot garbage1 is better than dot garbage2..etc etc
