Go Daddy to hire 350 nationwide, mainly for its customer call centers

Nearly 70 percent of the jobs will be in call centers, with other positions in areas such as Linux, engineering, information technology, development, marketing, accounting and facilities.

Adelman said the technical positions are open now. They pay $80,000 to $100,000 annually. Call-center employees usually earn $42,000 to $45,000 a year, he added. The goal is to have all workers on board by mid-May to early June.

"We've got plenty of people in our customer-care operation making six figures," Adelman said. "It's just a question of your time and the work that you do and your role. We think they're pretty significant jobs with lots of opportunity."

About half of Go Daddy's technical and corporate hires are internal candidates, he said.

Go Daddy says it has doubled its number of employees, to more than 3,000 last week, in less than four years, despite a tough economic climate. More than 2,600 of those workers are in the Valley.

A huge movement by consumers to the Internet is driving growth, Adelman said.

"The eyeballs are spending more and more time on the Internet, media is being consumed on the Internet, shopping is increasingly being done on the Internet," he said. "That means that small businesses, which are the core of our customer base, are increasingly moving online."

The company has facilities in Phoenix, Tempe and Gilbert and offices in Hiawatha, Iowa; Denver; and Washington, D.C.

In recent years, Go Daddy expanded to Toronto, and it has data centers in the Netherlands and Singapore.
