GoDaddy is continuing to expand its domain name Aftermarket reach into the China market. The company is looking to hire a Manager for the Domain Aftermarket in China. The job opening and news about the Chinese expansion was announced on LinkedIn by Bob Mountain, Chief Revenue Officer at Afternic (a division of GoDaddy):
This person hired for this Manager-level position will work in GoDaddy’s Shanghai, China office. Here’s the crux of the job opportunity:
“The Domain Aftermarket Manager will oversee a team of Domain Aftermarket Brokers and a team of Domain Aftermarket Support Representatives in Shanghai, China. They will play a critical role in building and developing the team in the Chinese market. They’re responsible for helping maintain and drive China Domain Aftermarket revenue. Manage the team of Aftermarket Sales and Tier 2 Aftermarket Support Representatives to maintain a high standard of excellence.”
The domain name aftermarket in China saw huge growth several years ago followed by some contraction. While domain name sale prices are mostly down from the peak a few years ago, it seems that the aftermarket is still very active with China-based domain name buyers. Having a team to support their Chinese customers is a good idea.
Although the primary goal of the job and aftermarket team is to sell domain names, it does not look like experience in the domain industry is a requirement for the position. Someone who is familiar with the domain name aftermarket could have a leg up on other applicants.
