Afternic Sales Executive Rich Green posted a link to a job opening at GoDaddy that might be of interest to someone that excels in sales, especially someone who is familiar with the domain name business. The company is looking to hire at least one inbound sales executive to sell domain names.
Because this is an Afternic job opening, the position appears to be based in the company’s Cambridge, Massachusetts office. Since domain name sales can pretty much be done anywhere, I am not sure if the company would allow someone to work in a different GoDaddy office or elsewhere.
The new hires will be expected to close a certain number of sales each day. The job listing states that the company’s “sales executives typically make 3-5 sales every day.” The hires will also need to become knowledgable about the domain name aftermarket and business. Like most domain investors already know, selling domain names can be a 24/7/365 activity, and the new hires are expected to be “able to work evenings and weekends when needed to field sales opportunities from all over the world.”
The best candidates for this position will excel in sales and be able to effectively communicate with clients and colleagues. I presume someone who has experience selling domain names (and has excelled at it) would be a great candidate.
This job opportunity may have been created in light of the Marchex portfolio acquisition news reported by DNJournal, Domain Name Wire, and TheDomains.com , although I don’t have confirmation of this. I am unsure if any of the Marchex employees who worked on the company’s domain business are relocated to GoDaddy in the wake of this deal.
