How to Get Hired
We asked GoDaddy.com, LLC for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
Recruits must be passionate about making a difference in the lives of customers, mostly small business owners and entrepreneurs. Our Customer Care colleagues are determined to help, selflessly transparent and driven to create uncommon outcomes for customers. Our engineers build simple, elegant technologies to delight our customers. They create solutions for easily conducting business online and off. GoDaddy hires candidates with diversity of thought and intellectual curiosity, especially around continual improvement. We seek talent closely aligned to our values — Joining Forces, Being Extraordinary, Owning Outcomes, Working Fearlessly and Living Passionately. We hire people who can tactfully break down barriers, build new markets and stare down the impossible until the impossible blinks.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Initiate communication with a recruiter or employee to let us know you’re interested in a GoDaddy career. Learn more about what we do and who we serve. We are much more than a domain name provider. When a candidate arrives excited by our products, services and an understanding of the company direction, it distinguishes her or him as someone who wants to be involved. That shows they’re a true “GoGetter,” just like our customers and our workforce.
Are there any unusual or especially rigorous steps of your hiring process that candidates should be aware of?
We give candidates as much of an opportunity to get to know us because we want to get to know you. We have a thorough process that can include online testing, phone screens, in-person interviews, references and background checks. We often move quickly, but when candidates need more time to make a decision, we work to accommodate all requests.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We focus on hiring a diverse workforce across all our global markets, from accounting professionals to marketing and datacenter professionals, as well as engineers and passionate customer service consultants and interns.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
GoDaddy is a keenly social company. Check us out on LinkedIn, Glassdoor, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. You can also learn a lot about us at GoDaddy.com. We possess the passion of a start-up and operate with the scale of a mature technology company. We offer an opportunity to do more than just build an awesome resume, but also find satisfaction by helping millions of customers achieve their dreams through technology and consultative service.
