godaddylogo asked me if I would run a post for a position they are seeking and it sounds like a great job with the title The Domains Partner Manager, which they say carries a six figure salary plus benefits (Medical and Dental Insurance)  and includes possible pre-IPO shares or options.

The job doesn’t require you to move to Arizona or work out of any of offices.

If none of you take it, I might, so you better get applying.

Here is the info:

GoDaddy Domains has a unique opportunity for someone who wants to be part of a great team managing a core growth segment for GoDaddy.

The successful candidate will be the primary point of contact for registry partners and responsible for managing their onboard experience and/or the on-going business relationship with GoDaddy.

The Domains Partner Manager will work across multiple organizations to develop, drive and execute a well-managed, profitable and growing business through relationship excellence and portfolio optimization practices. The role will require working collaboratively with Product Management, Legal, Finance and Marketing teams to deliver world-class business opportunities with maximum return on investment from an assigned portfolio of top level domains (TLDs).

As Partner Manager, you will formulate partner, business and product strategies with registry partners and internal core teams who collaboratively drive success for the Domains team. The role will add value by leading the development and execution of a GoDaddy partner strategy to grow the Domain’s incremental product revenue, support the deployment of registry TLDs and develop and promote repeatable solutions relevant across multiple registries.

Accountabilities include consistent and vigilant partner pipeline management, partner readiness preparation, ability to deliver revenue and sales metrics by registry partner, participation in business strategy, marketing and account development discussions, pro-active communication to internal and executive management teams, and participation in and preparation for global industry meetings (ICANN).

Success is measured by the number of partner led/engage opportunities, partner-led wins/revenue/pipeline, partner attach and partner engagement rates/metrics that meet or exceed expectations, negotiating solutions to create win/win/win results for the registry operators, GoDaddy and ultimately registrants.

The role adds value to registry partners by helping them understand and drive new opportunities for their business and deepen their strategic relationship with GoDaddy.

•Ensure that cross-functional internal activities relevant to the launch and ongoing support of TLDs are well orchestrated with partner counterparts and leveraged across accounts and opportunities.
