I want to share a job opportunity that might be of interest to someone with experience within the domain industry. GoDaddy is looking to fill the role of Director of Product Marketing, Domains & Naming. The job will be based out of the company’s Sunnyvale, California office, although I presume the person will be able to work from for the time being. I saw the job opening listed on LinkedIn.
Here’s a brief description of the job:
“Armed with a fervor for constructing compelling marketing based on small business, consumer and daring insights, you will lead the development of segmentation, target market positioning, and go to market strategy to drive growth across online offerings including but not limited to: Domains, Privacy & Protection, Websites & Marketing, and Professional Email.
You’ll partner with product management and channel marketing leaders to identify new marketing opportunities, communicate compelling value props and drive cross functional go to market execution.”
Although this role directly involves domain names, the applicant does not need to have any domain industry experience. In fact, none of the job requirements have anything to do with domain names. That said, someone who fits the requirements and has domain industry experience might be a good candidate for the position.
Because of COVID-19, GoDaddy has changed how it will interview applicants. On the GoDaddy careers homepage, there is an overlay listing some of the changes to interviews, onboarding, and training.
This job opening was posted just a few days ago, and it does not appear that many people have applied for the position yet. If you are interested in the job, you can apply via LinkedIn or through GoDaddy’s job portal.
Any chance they are looking for someone expert in the “Names to Avoid” category?
