Chief Financial Officer (PIR)

Public Interest Registry
Reston, VA

Public Interest Registry is a unique non-profit organization that manages the .org domain, the internet domain of choice for non-profits and other organizations committed to doing good in the world. PIR seeks a Chief Financial Officer to oversee all aspects of its sophisticated financial model, which blends the characteristics of the non-profit sector and the fee-for-service domain name industry.

Public Interest Registry manages 10.3 million domain names worldwide that generate annual revenue of approximately $100M. As a non-profit organization with its own .org identity, however, PIR does not just manage website addresses: it runs multi-faceted programs that actively advance the ability of mission-driven organizations to use the internet and the .org domain safely and effectively.

Under the leadership of CEO Jonathon Nevett, a pioneer in the domain name industry, PIR has developed a 2019 strategic plan that calls for the expansion of its educational work. The Chief Financial Officer will be a key member of the executive management team directing this plan. S/he will lead the 6-person finance team to ensure PIR meets its financial targets and effectively manages resources, while also helping to sustain the organization’s reputation as a best place to work where employees are valued as whole individuals.
