GoDaddy powers the world's largest cloud platform dedicated to small, independent ventures. With nearly 18 million customers worldwide and over 77 million domain names under management, GoDaddy is the place people come to name their idea, build a professional website, attract customers and manage their work.

At GoDaddy, we are building a brand that is recognized globally and respected locally as the trusted advocate for our tribeand the place where ideas start, grow, and thrive online. To do that will mean a fundamental shift in how we think about our customers; from people who simply purchase our products to people who engage with and effectively utilize our services. We believe in using those tools and services to create things that move people. Because we believe it's only by moving people that you move brands. We believe that any worthwhile thing that happens in this world is the stuff done by people who are passionate enough to make things happen and naive enough to believe they can.

Our teams of Creative, Program Management, and Production challenge industry norms and drive big, bold brand thinking while also being responsive to product culture and needs. Our focus is outbound creative experiences including Youtube/social, and Global Events. All outbound consumer-facing creative and global events work is creatively developed and/or managed by the Global Brand team. This ensures a consistent and strong creative narrative for work that reaches an audience of over 18 million people. We scale with the support of external production partners and vendors, and take cues from our GoDaddy culture of moving fast, being bold, and iterating.
