If you are interested in working with the new gTLDs from the registry side, perhaps this job opening at Nominet will be of interest to you. Nominet is an domain name registry based in the UK. The company posted a job opening for the position of gTLD Lead.
The person who is hired will manage the new gTLD business development activities for the company. The position is based out of the company’s Oxford office, and the salary is “up to £61,000,” which is just under $100k annually in USD.
