Jeff Boulter (engineering manager for Y! News) is looking for a few good hackers:

for a new Yahoo! site focused on technology - cell phones, cameras, computers and other nerdly gadgets. Find ‘em, compare ‘em, buy ‘em and use ‘em. If you ever wanted to play with cool toys and get in on the ground level of building an entirely new Yahoo! site, here’s your chance!

What's the job entail? According to the official description:

We're looking for smart engineers who can express ideas clearly in written and spoken communication. Knowledge of HTTP, XML, XSLT, Apache, web services, HTML, PHP, Perl, UNIX systems, and MySQL are required. A BSCS/MSCS and at least 5 years of experience with large scale, fault-tolerant systems is also required.

So send him your resume. Send me your resume. But don't just sit there any longer. You could be getting paid good money instead of reading my blog.

Seriously, this looks to be a cool job working on a fun new project. Who knows, maybe you'll get to play with some of those new toys too...

Disclaimer: If you get hired and list me as your referral, I get a bonus. But is that so bad? :-)

What are the living expenses like out there? I am really looking into the "net" companies for a job as I try to move away from the oil business.

Also, I e-mailed you a while back about this but it probably was filtered at some lever, but does Yahoo! consider MIS (Management Information Systems) people for positions that they have listed as CS?

I'm not sure. Why not shoot me a resume?

If the degree is not absolute, maybe you guys will consider using PostgreSQL instead too? ;-)
