Yahoo! plans to do a lot of recruiting at conferences this year, to get the word out
that we're actively hiring all kinds of engineers. We'll be hosting an invite-only recruiting event for service engineers at our Sunnyvale headquarters later this week. If you're interested in attending, or learning more about all the engineering opportunities at Yahoo!, visit our global careers site to request an invite.
Recently, on February 20th and 21st, Yahoo!'s Talent Acquisition group, along with several service engineers attended the Southern Californian Linux Expo in Los Angeles, California to recruit top-tier service engineering talent.
The Southern California Linux Expo brings together Linux and open source vendors, developers, educators, and users for 3 days of talks, exhibits, tutorials and networking.
Yahoo! was on the exhibition floor. Long Phung, from our Talent Acquisition group, led this effort. Service engineers James Camou, Jim Barbour, and Jason Werner were also there to answer questions about what it's like to be a service engineer and what Yahoo! is looking for.
Over two days, we spoke with over 150 attendees, and took information from 111 of them. There were several very promising candidates ranging from sysadmins to Perl crafters, and we fielded requests for information about our internship program and our research lab.
