There seem to be quite a lot of people in the US and throughout the world who are looking for a job right now, and I want to share a new job listing in the domain space. Donuts posted a job opening on LinkedIn for the position of Senior Director, Marketing Innovation. The job listing says the job will be based in the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area, which is one of the six Donuts offices listed in the job posting.
Here’s an excerpt for the job posting, which describes what the position entails:
“Donuts is seeking an exceptional Sr. Director of Marketing Innovation to join our growing team. You will report directly to our Chief Marketing Officer and oversee marketing innovation for our Seattle based Donuts registry and Denver based registrar, Name.com.
As part of this role, you will be the master of understanding how data and analytics are a key tool to driving marketing innovation and growth. You rely heavily on analytics to make decisions and possess an “ROI mindset”. You are a compelling storyteller and know that is most useful when it fits in with a bigger picture strategic objective. You understand how to be proactive about conducting analyses, understanding market and industry trends and creating ROI-driven strategies to grow our business based on these analyses. You will lead a cross-functional team to concept a strategy and see it vetted, executed on, iterated and scaled. You will innovate in the areas of channel management, performance marketing, market expansion and share growth and help create a stronger, smarter, more nimble company.”
There is no requirement for job candidates to have any domain industry experience. The company may be seeking a candidate from outside the industry to bring some new ideas into marketing its domain names and extensions.
Perhaps due to the current state of the employment market, there have been quite a few applicants for this position. In fact, there have been 55 applicants on LinkedIn in the 3 days this job has been posted.
If you know of someone who would be a good fit for this role, you should send them this job listing.
Outside the industry indeed. I’m sure your .com portfolios are not the compelling evidence in which they seek.
