Do you want to Yahoo

05 May 2005

I have completed nearly one year and one month as a Yahoo i.e. including my internship. I even have a blog post on that on the day I joined.

It's hard to remember that just one year ago I was just a college kid. Just one year ago, I used to be run to class every morning because I never managed to get up early. Just one year ago, I used to sleep in class and do techie stuff at night with a meagre dialup connection. Just one year ago, friends used to meet just like that and no planning was required (unlike today).... I guess you know how the story goes :) ... but one year in yahoo... what a rush!

When I first joined Yahoo! Bangalore, there were about 60-70 people, we had that nice startup feel going. Now, we have nearly 300 people. There are plans to increase the headcount to 500 by hiring 200 more people by end of next year! That's right, that statement is straight from the horse's mouth ... err, the Y! Blr CEO's mouth.

So, if you are interested to come and join the gang here (you would be crazy not to be interested), I will mention five simple requirements from you:

Update : One of the positions that is open right now is a MySQL-oriented developer position for the 360.yahoo.com :D
