Pushing Android further
I've been having a lot of fun at Yahoo over the last few months, and I really like that Yahoo is really thinking mobile first at all levels. Of course, who says "mobile" says "Android", and I'm an Android guy at heart, so I'm naturally excited about all the possibilities.http://blog.getaviate.com/post/72586543194/aviates-going-to-get-better-faster-with-yahoo
To make the Android future even better and to make it happen even faster, Yahoo needs more Android people, especially engineers. We're hiring, mostly in Sunnyvale (Silicon Valley) and in New York, with a few possibilities in San Francisco as well.
If you want to be part of the team that shapes that future, email me your resume at email@example.com
Here's the official job description for mobile engineering. I actually had a hand in writing it! TL;DR: if you're a solid engineer and you've played with mobile, we've got a seat for you.
Yahoo is the world's biggest startup!
The Mobile & Emerging Product group
is building the beautiful mobile apps that inspire and entertain hundreds of millions of users daily. Our applications range from communications to content, from search to sports, and from entertainment to finance and rank among the top in their field. We are committed to delivering a superb user experience and are just scratching the surface! We are hiring engineers to make our apps even better and to drive the evolution and expansion of our current applications portfolio into new technology areas and market segments.
Our mobile engineers build Android and iOS applications. They work closely with designers and product managers within small "pods" that each build one application, which creates the ideal environment for agile methodologies. They can solve problems on their own or in teams, which gives them endless opportunities to communicate and to self-organize. Some work on development, others on quality. Our team structures encourage trust, learning from each other, having fun, and attracting people who are passionate about what they do. Teams use common IDEs for their respective target platforms; they are familiar with the object-oriented APIs they build upon, and they are not afraid of debugging and optimizing.
Some mobile engineers are at Yahoo as interns or as their first job; others have 10 years of experience or more. They are all strong programmers and strong computer scientists. They have usually been involved in mobile applications before joining Yahoo, but their backgrounds are quite varied. Most of them have at least a B.S. in computer science or engineering, with an M.S. opening up the most interesting opportunities.
The road ahead is exciting, and our team is moving fast. Your work will be seen and touched by millions of people, worldwide. If you believe you have what it takes to help shape our future then look no further, apply now, and get ready for the ride of your life! Minimum qualifications
