If you're a sports nut and want to work on one of the Internet's largest and most popular sports sites, this could be your lucky month. Yahoo! Sports is hiring.

Right now they have openings for an Engineer and a Visual Designer. You can read all about the jobs here: http://sports.yahoo.com/s/jobopenings. One of the most important qualifications is this: you must love sports.

As usual, if you're qualified and interested send me your resume and let me know which job you're after.

Full Disclosure: If you get hired and I refer you, I get a nice little cash bonus. But don't let that stop you from getting a cool job. :-)

Yahoo Sports isn't the largest or most popular sports site -- that would be ESPN.com

He never claimed it to be number one: "... one of the Internet's largest and most popular sports sites..."

It's not small either. I participated in a fantasy football league on Yahoo Sports and knew of several other leagues within my small circle of friends.

I think you'd be suprised how big gthe Fantasy Sports part of yahoo! Sports really is. It's by far the most popular league, or so my anecdotal experience with fantasy geeks the world over would lead me to believe.

If someone has the rankings, I'd be interested in seeing them.

Yeah, Y! Sports rocks. I don't know if I'm a big enough sports fan, though. I mean, I only live and breathe football this time of year. And baseball, I was sadly ecstatic about the Red Sox. And unfortunately, there's nothing quite like ACC basketball. Go Terps.

Yeah, I may not fit the sports fan bill. ;)

We are everywhere. It's just that we may not be the kind of nerd Yahoo! is looking for. :)

If you know perl, php, and/or java and you know the difference between a inner join vs a outer join and a slugging percentage vs a on-base percentage. Then apply!

tough nut to crack - finding a highly skilled uber-geek who is also into sports. I'm into rally driving and skateboarding, but i guess that doesnt count.
