So if you're interested in an interactive on-line data mashup construction set, check it out and have a look at the existing pipes developers have created. I think it's one of the coolest web apps we've released in a long time, and I'm not just saying that because I know the guys who built it. Not only does it make hard things easy (like Perl has done for years), the user interface kicks ass too. It's exciting both from a technological point of view and because of the implications for the web as a whole.
Since February, Pipes has been growing and improving (see the Pipes blog) and the team needs a few more people to help with the continued growth and features. We're looking for a good backend engineer (based in the Bay Area) to join the Pipes team--someone who really knows their RSS, Perl, MySQL, and PHP.
Pipes is, in my opinion, one of the coolest things that Yahoo has released in quite some time and I'd love to see a kick-ass engineer join the team. If you're at all interested and have questions about Yahoo, feel free to ask me. I've been here for 7.5+ years at this point and will gladly answer your questions.
