Well, he's out on his own now and we need some serious MySQL geekage around here.
The official job description looks like this:
Yahoo!'s Platform Engineering group is looking for a MySQL expert to provide consulting, training, and internal support for MySQL and data storage technologies. You will be working with teams to help them understand how MySQL may fit into their applications, making internal releases of custom MySQL binaries from source, analyzing database performance, and helping others to tune their hardware and software settings.
An ideal candidate has designed distributed and high-performance application architectures, is familiar with MySQL replication and load balancing, and knows the features, pros, and cons of MySQL's storage engines. Familiarity with Perl DBI, PHP, and MySQL administration tools is also required.
A source-level understanding of MySQL helpful but not required.
A BS/MS in Computer Science or equivalent and 4+ years experience with MySQL and Unix (FreeBSD/Linux) is required.
Shoot me a resume if you're interested.
