Donuts Job Opening: Domain Name Sales Consultant

Donuts posted a job opening on LinkedIn that might be of interest to someone with domain industry experience. The company is looking to hire a Domain Name Sales Consultant. The position will be based out of the company’s Kirkland, Washington headquarters. There is the potential to work remotely, but the company prefers for the employee to be based locally.

Here’s the description about the job opportunity:

“As a member of the Premium Sales team, the Domain Name Sales Consultant is responsible for raising awareness of and selling the most valuable inventory within the Donuts portfolio of 241 Top-Level-Domains (TLDs). The ideal sales candidate loves working with customers and prospects, is able to convey and articulate a message over the phone, thrives in a competitive sales environment, is financially driven, and has a dynamic and upbeat personality. Our sales rock stars know how to overcome any sales objections, handle customers with care, and close sales rapidly.”

Donuts is the largest new gTLD registry operator with nearly 250 extensions. Many of the best / most usable keywords in its extensions were reserved by the company for premium resale. I presume the job will entail selling the higher value domain names from its portfolio of reserved domain names.

Donuts has set the high water mark for new gTLD domain name sales, selling Online.Casino for $510,000 last year. The company also sold Vacation.Rentals for $500,300 and Home.Loans for $500,000. These are among the highest achieved sale prices for the new extensions.

The job opening was posted to LinkedIn about three weeks ago, and SVP of Sales Matt Overman confirmed that it has not yet been filled. If you think you might be a good fit for this job opportunity, you can apply for the position directly via LinkedIn. From my perspective, it might make more sense to work for a company like Donuts and sell their domain names rather than trying to build an investment portfolio of new gTLD domain names.

  1. Tough job to keep harassing people about their innocent inquiries to spend a few bucks to register a domain only to get 5-6 figure pricing requests.
