I've got two openings on my team at Yahoo, one is for a manager of marketing and community for the Y! Developer Network, and the other is for a Technical Evangelist/Developer Support specialist.
For the marketing/community position, a strong technology marketing background (preferably targeting a developer audience) and hands-on experience supporting an online community is crucial.
For the evangelist/support role, we're more flexible with respect to what you've done in the past (a coder looking for a new set of challenges would work, a sales engineering type might work, I'd even consider a technical documentation specialist if you're on the more technical side). What's most important is that elusive combination of technical experience, great communication skills, and a passion for helping developers.
Yahoo is a nice place to work and we're going to be building out our third-party developer initiatives significantly in the coming year, so if you've ever wanted to get in on the ground floor of something big, now's your chance.
Emphasis mine. If you'd to help shape the future of Yahoo's Developer Network, now is the time to get on board. Get in touch with Jeffrey, or send me your resume.
