Perks and Programs

We asked GoDaddy.com, LLC to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • GoDaddy Holiday Party: GoDaddy holiday parties are widely publicized as being off the hook. The 2014 party was no exception. Aligned with the company target of international expansion, the glowing signs for Havana Cantina and Cubana Central lit up the stadium. Special guest artists included Daddy Yankee and Mr. Worldwide himself, Pitbull. Pitbull offered party guests positive messages of unity, oneness, and the right to lose themselves in the music and celebrate everything GoDaddy has accomplished. More than 5,000 guests attended the bash, which ended with a massive fireworks display over the field.
  • Iowa RAGBRAI & Senior Leadership Involvement: We don’t just work in our local communities; we live and play in them too. One example would be our company participation in Iowa’s RAGBRAI annual seven-day bicycle ride across the state. This year we sponsored a booth at the Hiawatha stop for the ride. Riders could come and cool off, charge their devices, and get a free massage. Our CEO and members of our Senior Leadership Team (SLT) participated and rode legs of the route to support the community.
  • Exceptional Teams Training: Exceptional Teams is an all-day program that helps accelerate group collaboration, trust and cohesion with the goal of becoming a high-performing team. Utilizing five key principles —Direction, Connection, Alignment, Performance, and Attitude — this program aligns with Agile methodologies and GoDaddy values to redefine the very definition of team. Instead of seeing themselves as a group of people who happen to have the same manager, we help employees experience the power of a true team – an engaged team with a common purpose, dedicated to producing superior results over a sustained period of time. Exceptional Teams participants define what “exceptional” means for their team, and commit to the behaviors they will need to sustain in order to create uncommon outcomes. We take teams and make them EXCEPTIONAL.
  • New Employee Welcome and Welcome Dinner: We host a weekly QuickStart to welcome our new employees and help them to get up and running quickly in time for lunch with their teams. GoDaddy also holds a monthly New Employee Welcome (NEW) session at our headquarters in Arizona. We begin with a casual dinner, hosted in a GoDaddy executive’s home – new hires get to know GoDaddy senior executives and each other. We share our vision, mission and values and talk about our customers, our business and our technology. It’s critical new employees understand how their work impacts our customers and our company. New GoGetters also listen to customer care consultants helping our customers, regardless of the role people are in.
  • GoDaddy Voice: GoDaddy Voice was branded by employees, for employees. We take feedback seriously by focusing on key areas to improve and celebrate our culture wins. We believe in listening, taking action, and seeing what sticks. GoDaddy Voice informs our business planning and we continue to measure key outcomes. We continually share out the latest actions taken as a result of the survey, plus ongoing communication on the intranet homepage for transparency on progress and plans. Over 88% of GoGetters participated in our annual engagement survey last year. We’re grateful to have built a program that employees and managers value and trust.

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. We promote our Careers website.  https://www.godaddy.com/careers for in-depth information.
