We have lots of really interesting jobs open at Yahoo right now. Most of them have been posted about in various places, so allow me to recap what's out there.
- MyBlogLog needs LAMP and Operations help, based in Berkeley, California. It's a small team doing very visible work quickly.
- The Yahoo! Pipes team and Advanced Products team are looking for great engineers both front-end and back-end based in Sunnyvale, California.
- Flickr needs international (multilingual) community managers who love Flickr and the Flickr community. Work from where you live. :-)
- The Yahoo! Developer Network has several openings including technical evangelists, backend engineers, frontend engineers, and product management.
- The Yahoo! Tiger Team is Hiring Senior Software Engineers so if you know your Unix and C/C++ and can build scalable systems, this job is for you. The team is based in Sunnyvale, California.
To the best of my knowledge, all the jobs are open to existing Yahoos (internal transfers are a great way to try out a new job without switching companies--I've done my share of that!) as well as outsiders. In most cases, however, location is an issue. The nature of most of these makes remote work difficult (at least in the short and medium terms). The Flickr jobs are an obvious exception to that.
Shoot me a resume (or a pointer to it) and let me know what you're interested in. I'll get your resume to a hiring manger and be happy to answer any questions you have about working at Yahoo, where I've been for 7+ years now.

Got some questions for you. How is it in Yahoo when you want to apply for multiple jobs/teams? Should I apply separately to each one or is there a single interview process for all the hirings? I am interested in both Y! Pipes and YDN.
Apply to both and the groups can fight over you. :-)
Actually, if they both like you then the choice is ultimately yours.
A couple of more general questions about recruiting at Yahoo!
The first one is about trying out a new job *when* switching company. If I want to do something else (related, but different) than I'm doing now, meaning that the skill set I have is not obviously supporting the competencies normally required for the position I may be applying for. How does Yahoo! approach that?
The second one is, how Yahoo! deals with relocations? (I am living in Japan right now)
Actually there's a third question: what is keeping you working with Yahoo!? What makes it special to you?
Hiring at Yahoo! including MyBlogLog, YDN,....
Any chance of hiring someone to either fix tv.yahoo.com/listings or return it to its pre-December state?
I wish I knew.
What is the office atmosphere like?
Jason: The atmosphere is quite fun.
