Yahoo!, the little internet portal that could, has a number of openings
for unixy people.  It's not secret that Yahoo! is using FreeBSD for a
large portion of their hosts, but the job requirements are in general
not all that operating system specific.  All of the openings are in CA,
but I know that there are numerous people on this list who aren't even
in NY, and New Yorkers do occasionally venture out to Krazy CA, so what
the hell, let's post here, too.

Since there are multiple openings, I won't send the whole job posting,
just the one-line summary.  If you're interested, please contact me
indicating which position(s) you're interested in and consider yourself
qualified for.  The overall sales pitch for the company goes something
like this:

"Think about impacting 1 out of every 2 people online--in innovative and
imaginative ways that are uniquely Yahoo!. We do just that each and
every day, and you could too. After all, it's big thinkers like you who
will create the next generation of Internet experiences for consumers
and advertisers across the globe. Now's the time to show the world what
you've got. Put your ideas to work for over half a billion people."

In addition, Y! is a very fun place to work, and there are few places
that operate on a scale like this, so you get to solve problems that
others won't ever encounter.

Anyway, the following are the current openings we have:

- Systems Security Engineer

- Infrastructure Manager- Storage& Data Protection

- Storage QA Engineer

- Sr. System Administrator

- Sr. Software Engineer

- Senior Systems Engineer/Architect  Traffic Management (DNS)

- Network Engineer- Backbone

- Network QA Engineer

- Storage QA

- Senior Software QA Engineer

- Network QA Engineer

- Datacenter Ops Engineer-Lab

- Network Security Operations Engineer

All positions are preferably in Sunnyvale, CA, USA.  Some positions may
offer a location of Burbank, CA, USA; Dallas, TX, USA.

All positions require various degrees of familiarity with FreeBSD and

Almost all involve being part of an on-call rotation.

I can't promise to respond to all inquiries, but I will forward resumes
of qualified candidates.  Of course you should feel free to just apply
directly via the above links.
