Verisign posted a job opportunity I thought might be of interest to a reader who has experience within the domain name industry. Verisign is looking to hire a Senior Registry Platform Manager. Among other things, Verisign operates the .com and .net domain name registries. This job opening was posted on LinkedIn this past week, so now may be a good time to apply for the job as one of the first job applicants.
Here’s an excerpt about this position from the job posting:
“The Domain Name Registry Senior Platform Manager plays a key role in managing Verisign’s registry platforms. This position participates in strategy development for registry platforms by leveraging an understanding of functional requirements as defined by customer groups as well as current and pending contractual and policy requirements. Additionally, this role partners with the Technology Services Group, develops business requirements, translates them into functional specifications for the organization and manages changes to such specifications. The Senior Platform Manager will educate the business on new applications and processes related to platform and feature enhancements and ensures the team is equipped and trained appropriately.
The Platform Manager will resolve a wide range of issues in innovative and practical ways and should demonstrate good judgment in selecting methods and techniques for obtaining solutions to challenges. The Platform Manager will also gather, track and report metrics and key performance indicators for new initiatives, features and functionality.”
The reason I thought it might appeal to a reader is because three of the qualifications are specific to domain name industry knowledge and experience.
“Minimum 10 years of related experience in a product management environment, with experience in conforming to domain name industry technology standards and complying with audit requirements.
Thorough technical understanding of domain name registry architectures and supporting systems; monitor and understand ongoing policy development within the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) community
Domain name Industry knowledge; trends, current and historical events, understanding of long term regulatory, competitive products, competitor positioning in marketplace.”
Domain industry experience are not the only qualifications listed, but it seems like someone with this type of expertise might also meet the other qualifications as well.
The job opening looks to be based out of Verisign’s corporate office in Reston, Virginia. Interested applicants may apply for this job opportunity via LinkedIn.
