Google Job Postings Offer Insight On Company’s Future Top Level Domain Program

Google Jobs screen caught two Google job postings that offer evidence supporting the company’s plans to grow its top level domain name program.

The job postings are both for positions in Google’s San Francisco office, one for a Product Marketing Manager, Domains and the other for a Strategic Partner Manager, gTLD program. The Product Marketing Manager listing claims, “The Internet is about to explode with new top-level domains, going from the 22 familiar faces like .com and .net and .edu to over 1,400+ in the next 18 months.”

The Strategic Partner Manager listing states explicitly, “Google is launching a domain registry and we are looking for people that are excited about building this new business for Google.” Within the job listing, Google says it has applied to be the registry for 98 new top level domains, “Ranging from Google brand terms like .google and .chrome to generic domain extensions like .how and .fly.”

As the report on points out, for anyone who thought Google’s plans were only to sell domain names directly, these job postings prove the company has a much broader strategy.
