Your domain name should  reflect your identity online, your brand and your company name. It is not a good idea to add keywords or stuffing keywords in your domain name for the sake of ranking. It will not work. If your company name happens to have a keyword in it that's good, if not do not stuff useless keywords in your domain name since this will hurt both your brand reputation and your SEO.

That depends on what you mean by optimize. There's a couple of things you should consider:

Keyword is Domain Name - also referred to as an Exact Match Domain or EMD - is a powerful ranking bonus is attributed when a keyword exactly matches a domain and a search query meets Google's definition of a "commercial query". This was designed so that brands would rank for their own names, but was frequently exploited and as a result, made less-powerful in various circumstances.

Add keywords in domain is good idea if your website for blogging otherwise take our company or brand name as a domain.

In today's generation , the keyword is no need to optimize your domain name but it is fast and one of the best way to do optimization. So, I say yes.

I wouldn't agree that domain name has to be optimized for certain keyword. Maybe it can be good in the beginning for new sites. But damains with your brand name seems more legit than kw-based domain.

It would be perfect if you can somehow combine your brand and kw in the domain name.
