GoDaddy is looking to hire a Senior Manager who will be responsible for connecting with and networking with domain investors. The aim of the position is to attract new GoDaddy customers from the domain investing community while driving revenue growth from current investor clients.
Here’s an excerpt from the job listing, which was posted on LinkedIn a few days ago:
“In this role you will be responsible for building a mutually beneficial relationship with the domain investor community that measurably supports business objectives – including growing share with our current customers while also attracting new investors. You’ll act as a strategic partner to the domain investor business team and ensure your work fully aligns and supports their strategy. To be effective, you will meaningfully engage the investor community and become known as one of its biggest advocates. In turn, the community will act as a positive influence on our brand and our business, enabling more effective brand storytelling, engaging new DRI audiences, and providing counsel back to the business.”
Whomever is hired for this role will have a significant amount of interaction with domain investors. The company is looking to hire someone with “[D]eep knowledge of the domain investing industry and community.” This could come from a domain investor looking for a corporate role or from someone working at another company within the domain name industry.
This is a remote position, with just a few limitations on where the new hire can not work (Alaska, Mississippi, North Dakota, or the Virgin Islands). The person hired for this role will need to occasionally visit GoDaddy offices and will likely want to attend domain investor events like NamesCon.
While the salary is not posted, there are some guidelines given based on the location of the new hire:
“GoDaddy’s compensation is local to where you are and may vary based on an individual’s qualifications at the time of the offer. The anticipated annual base salary ranges for select locations are listed below:
Seattle, New York City – $128000.00 to $160000.00
Colorado, Washington State – $102500.00 to $128000.00”
This is something GoDaddy has needed for a long time.
For such a large company, they seem to have limited engagement with the domain investment community.
They also need more presence on popular domain forums like NamePros. Paul Nicks and Joe Styler are great, but they both have full time jobs.
Having some type of full time liaison to the domain investment community would be hugely beneficial to them.
Why don’t you apply for the position, Elliot? You have a good rapport with Godaddy.
I would apply for the position, but I like doing my own thing too much. Probably same way for you.
It is a very interesting job position though.
I like my salary, my hours, and my boss. I also wouldn’t want to deal with other domain investors who are probably as demanding and looking for perfection as much as me.
Plus you know a lot of Domain Investors.
Elliot gets to work at home while raising his kids, no amount of money will make him go back to a real job
Godaddy does not give a shit, they are lazy just collecting a paycheck. Paul Nicks over promises and under delivers. Joe Sytler nice guy to have a beer with but I woudn’t even count on him feeding his dog
It is just a public traded company and all it cares is the shareholders
Bulls comes in with the “Fire” bro. That is ALL they care about, those dudes have no drive to help domainers, they are useless
Love you Elliott, that is why you are one of the greatest domainers ever. Never work for anybody, bet on yourelf always!!!!!!
Yeah you probably would be hard to deal with. Lol
you’re right, it’s a long time coming.
i hear working for godaddy is great, but i prefer working without a boss, and yes, domain investors can be pretty demanding, as we know from ourselves 🙂
@paul Hopefully they know what they’re doing. Nothing worse than trying to deal with someone that has no domain experience.
