Back­ground: The Internet’s ICANN may add in its sole dis­cre­ti­on new top-level domains into its cen­tral Root Ser­ver TLD data­ba­se short­ly. By this domain names like www.why.berlin, www.1.berlinand www.thisisalongdomainname.berlin will beco­me available.
For this rea­son we are see­king ade­qua­te employees that com­ple­ment the dot­BER­LIN team with excep­tio­nal know­ledge, expe­ri­ence, back­ground and atti­tu­de. For the very nea­rest future we are loo­king to fill the fol­lowing posi­ti­ons conscientiously:

If yes, your main task at dot­BER­LIN is the defen­se of the hier­ar­chy, nome­n­cla­tu­re and cohe­rence of any kind of IP addres­ses for the secu­ri­ty of our com­pa­ny. The super­vi­si­on of the 3‑charcters rule and its excep­ti­ons is also part of your tasks.

About dot­BER­LIN
dot­BER­LIN, foun­ded in 2005, is a bot­tom-up com­mu­ni­ty-based orga­niz­a­ti­on which with the aim to estab­lish and ope­ra­te the .ber­lin top-level domain as name space and iden­ti­ty for all Ber­li­ners. Our focus is to deve­lop .ber­lin respon­si­ble and sus­tainab­ly wit­hin a mul­ti-sta­ke­hol­der frame­work inclu­ding government, pri­va­te sec­tor and civil society.
Our visi­on is that the new local .ber­lin domain names are con­cise and crea­te an iden­ti­ty for citi­zens, com­pa­nies and insti­tu­ti­ons. Tho­se pro­vi­ding and loo­king for infor­ma­ti­on, goods and ser­vices can thus intui­tively come tog­e­ther. The .ber­lin domain names will streng­t­hen the fee­ling of com­mu­ni­ty amongst Ber­li­ners, impro­ve com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on and make inter­ac­tion easier, thus pro­vi­ding a sti­mu­lus for inno­va­ti­on and deve­lo­p­ment. Both for Ber­li­ners and for non-Ber­li­ners, the pla­ces cal­led Ber­lin beco­me more attrac­ti­ve as a place to visit, as a com­mer­cial loca­ti­on and as a place to live.
