Sky, “Europe’s biggest entertainment brand,” is looking to hire a Domain Management Analyst. Because this job opening involves domain name management at a large corporation, I thought it might be of interest to someone with domain industry experience. Perhaps a domain investor who wants to work in a corporate environment or someone who invests in domain names part time would make a good candidate for this job opportunity.
Here’s an excerpt from the job listing page posted two weeks ago on LinkedIn:
“As the Domain Management Analyst, you will be looking after the day to day provision of domain name management and administration. In addition, be involved with domain brand protection initiatives and domain and DNS strategy for Sky.
- Assist with the management of the domain name portfolios and liaising when instructed with the corporate domain management registrars.
- Help with the upkeep and compliance of Sky’s contracted obligations with ICANN in relation to the dotSKY top level domain registry.
- Assist with the provision of policies and guidance documentation relating to domains, sub domains and domain DNS zone files.
- Help with the promotion of domain, sub domain and DNS zone file best practices and policies across Sky Group Technology and all business teams.
- Proactively source and research documentation and news stories associated or relevant to domain names, DNS and related internet matters.
- Organise, when required, workshops relating to domain and DNS strategy.
- Act as backup for the Online Compliance & Brand Protection Manager in their absence.”
As you can see, the opportunity almost entirely revolves around domain name management, and a domain name investor would certainly have this type of expertise. It does not look like candidates need to have this expertise though. In the experience section of the job listing, it says the candidate will have, “A good understanding of how the internet works, domain name management and how domain zone files work.”
The job will be based in Sky’s Isleworth, Great Britain office. As of the time of publication, it looks like fewer than 25 people have applied for the job via LinkedIn.
