Many companies have their IT, legal, or marketing groups manage their corporate domain name assets. Some companies outsource their domain name management to corporate registrars like CSC, GCD, or MarkMonitor. Very few companies seem to have a person whose role is specifically related to domain name management.
I noticed that Wells Fargo posted a job opening on LinkedIn related to domain names. The financial services giant is looking to hire a Domain Management Specialist. This position entails management of the company’s portfolio of domain names as well as the acquisition of domain names.
Here’s an excerpt from the job listing with an overview of the role:
“Wells Fargo is seeking a Domain Management Specialist to support programs established to manage risk and operational practices associated with internet domain names and unique internet technologies.”
Wells Fargo is looking to hire someone with experience managing domain names. In the required qualifications section, “2+ years of Domain management experience” is listed. I would imagine someone wishing to switch from another corporate domain management role or someone who has worked in an account management role for a domain industry company would be qualified.
It’s great to see a company like Wells Fargo take domain names seriously by insourcing its domain name management.
