The Yahoo! Developer Network (otherwise known as "YDN", also known as "where I work") is looking for a skilled webdev to work full-time at Yahoo! HQ in Sunnyvale, California.
Here's a bit of the boilerplate about the job. I've left out the "who is yahoo" stuff, since I assume your know what Yahoo is if you managed to work the Internet long enough to find this. :-)
Knowledge of XML, HTTP, Apache, MySQL, remote scripting, state management, working within a Unix environment, CVS, and bug tracking tools is highly desirable. A Computer Science degree with 5+ years of related work experience is required.
The environment is fast-paced with numerous user-centered iterative design & development cycles. You'll be responsible for building everything from proof-of-concepts and usability prototypes to deployment-quality code.
Shoot me your resume and I'll get you hooked up with the hiring manager.

Is this job opportinity is only for Californians? Or there is chance to work in other place not in USA?
Was that not clear?
"...to work full-time at Yahoo! HQ in Sunnyvale, California."
Sounds like an interesting job...
"A Computer Science degree with 5+ years of related work experience is required."
Talented devs with a the requisite skills and experience, a track record on a major OSS project, but no degree need not apply? EEs and Math majors need not apply?
Matt, feel free to apply. These are not hard and fast rules.
Speaking as the guy who did this job for a year and a half, I can personally confirm that YDN is an outstanding department to work for. They take chances, make mistakes, iterate like crazy, ship daily, and power much of the Hack Day spirit at Yahoo. As a member of YDN, your work will be extremely visible to the very highest level of management, and will positively impact the lives of many of your fellow developers.
Oh, and Matt? They took me without any degree at all, so please do apply. Work experience and visible track record definitely count. I only left the group because something even cooler--prototyping the new front page--opened up.
Hey I am currently pursuing B-tech in 4rth yr.
Could you suggest me d way to apply in yahoo. I know all what you have mentioned but i dont have experience.
So your yahoo can take chance on me ???

So, what about companies. I work for a small web dev company, we are looking to bring in new work. Would you consider outsourcing?
