At GoDaddy the future of work looks different for each team. Some teams work in the office full-time, others have a hybrid arrangement (they work remotely some days and in the office some days) and some work entirely remotely.

This is a remote position, so you’ll be working remotely from your home. You may occasionally visit a GoDaddy office to meet with your team for events or offsites.

This position is not eligible to be performed in Alaska, Mississippi, North Dakota, or the Virgin Islands.

In this specific role, you will be contributing directly to commerce experiences, frameworks, and patterns, and will be responsible for leading design discussions, brainstorming sessions and design reviews across teams. 

As the leader in the design team, you will partner with other leaders and establish strategic plans, goals, and tactics and delegating assignments to your direct reports. You will be working on issues where analysis of situations or data requires an in-depth knowledge of organizational objectives.
