Update: Added a few more US based jobs.
First, an introduction. I'm Mark Tsimelzon, a recent addition to the Hadoop team. I'm Director of Engineering at Yahoo!, managing MapReduce and a bunch of projects with cute animal names that build database abstractions on top of Apache Hadoop. Having spent most of my career in various startups, I was not sure what I was getting myself into when I joined Yahoo!. To my amazement, what I discovered here was not so different from a startup. The Hadoop team at Yahoo! is filled with extremely smart, hard-working people, who care deeply about their job, Yahoo!, and Open Source. The team moves as fast as any startup does, even though the scale of the problems it solves would make any startup founder deeply envious.
The best part of being the a part of the Hadoop team at Yahoo! is that despite the current global economic situation this team is growing fast! This is not surprising - all of Yahoo! batch data processing is moving to Hadoop, and we need many more great people on to join this team. What follows is a quick list of openings we currently have, and it. It includes openings for developers, testers, architects, managers and directors. If you are interested in applying for any of these positions, please send your resume together with a few lines on why you want to work with us on Hadoop to firstname.lastname@example.org
