Tom Glover, President of Northwest Registered Agent, LLC, asked me to share a job posting that might be of interest to someone with experience and expertise in the domain name space. The company is looking to hire a Director of Domain Name Registrar for its registrar business. The job listing was posted on TwoBarrels.com.
Northwest Registered Agent is a registered agent service that also offers business formation services. I wrote about the company in 2013 after I saw a press release announcing its acquisition of StartingABusiness.com. The idea behind the acquisition was that people would find the company when starting a business since they offer business services in addition to registered agent services.
The company is seeking someone who is experienced in the domain name industry. In fact, all of the qualifications for this job are domain name related. The section appealing to applicants about why they might like the job will probably speak to someone from within the domain investor community:
“You’ve painfully submitted to Godaddy for years and wondered: Why do they still suck when they have all the money in the world and they could care less about their clients? You were a little bummed when Uni sold to Godaddy. A little bummed when dan did also. You know when I’m talking about parking, it’s not your car. You hate dealing with domain “investors” but would love to help domainers. You always click back to classic for Godaddy auctions and you don’t trust Google domains. You were a little sad when Phoenix went down and escrow.com sold and the new owners are a pain in the ass now to deal with. You wish dropcatch wasn’t such a pain and you wish the domain king wouldn’t bid on stuff and stayed retired so we wouldn’t have to listen to him or have to bid against him. You wish namesilo was still a couple of dudes just offering amazing customer service over email but annoyed they wouldn’t answer the phone and bummed to see them publicly owned now submitting to upsell hell. You wish you could place orders on snap or namejet and get all the wins in one registrar instead of the insanity they provide for you now. You wonder what on earth happened to Moniker.
You just keep wondering… When will someone just simply focus on helping people register and maintain domains in an awesome way. If you have any clue what I’m saying after reading all this, and you are still excited at this point, you have found your dream job. Please apply. Let’s mess up this entire space together.”
The location of this job opportunity is listed as “Spokane, WA / Austin, TX / Salt Lake, UT / Remote.” The company also listed the salary as $150,000 with a variety of benefits. Update: It looks like the salary has been increased to $200,000.
I am not familiar with the company or its services, but it looks like this could be an opportunity for a domain industry insider who wants to help operate a domain registrar catering to businesses.
