Last week, Andrew Allemann wrote about a GoDaddy job opening that will have a direct impact on the domain investment side of the business. GoDaddy is looking to fill the role of President, Domain Registrar & Investor Business. I think this is an important role, and the person will directly oversee all of GoDaddy’s lines of business that impact domain investors, including its marketplaces and auctions.
This morning, I noticed a job opening posted to LinkedIn that will not have a direct impact on domain investors, but it is an important corporate role. GoDaddy is looking to hire a Vice President of Investor Relations. The job was posted six days ago, and there have been 54 applicants on LinkedIn so far.
Here’s a brief overview of the job opening GoDaddy is looking to fill:
“GoDaddy is looking for an exceptionally talented Vice President of Investor Relations to join our dynamic leadership team as the main point of interface between GoDaddy and its public investors. GoDaddy is approaching five years as a public company, with a strong reputation for delivering strong growth and profitability, while also clearly articulating its opportunity, advantages, and strategy to the investment community. This role reports directly to the CFO and is part of GoDaddy’s leadership team.”
With no disrespect to domain investors, I do not think this position is one that will be of interest to investors. In fact, I think it would probably pose a conflict of interest for someone within the domain investment space to seek out this role. However, I am sure there are a few corporate domain industry participants that would be a good fit for the role. I also think someone in the domain space may know a qualified individual from outside the domain industry who might be a good candidate.
If you know someone who might be a good fit for the job, it could be a great opportunity.
