    Wow….that’s quite a few jobs. It makes me think that these parking companies are still growing, or expect to grow.

    It makes me reconsider some notions I’ve had about the stagnation in the domain market.

    You know. on Parked.com there is a little link in the lower, left corner of the initial log in page that says “Careers”. If you click it it takes you to a page that says that right now they are hiring a Php Developer, so you can add that one to the list.

    Nice job compiling this list Elliot! Not sure anyone has ever done that for the domain industry.

    I didn’t add the Parked.com opportunity because it says it was posted in 2007.

    It is interesting to see that while the rest of the economy is facing layoffs, hiring freezes and salary cuts, the major domain industry players are at least doing some hiring.

    Nice to see a domain company have “search engine marketing specialists” on staff. Wonder if they have any real SEOs on staff?
