We're Hiring a Perl Hacker

Are you a Perl Hacker looking for work?

Yahoo!'s Engineering Infrastructure group is looking for a motivated Perl hacker interested in developer support tools. Help build the next generation of package configuration, release management, bug-tracking and build tools used by Yahoo! developers worldwide. A BS/MS in Computer Science or equivalent and 4+ years experience with Perl and Unix is required. Experience with CVS, Makefiles, SQL, and PHP a plus.

Interested? Apply here or send me your resume.

Disclaimer. I get a referral bonus if you tell 'em I sent you and you get hired.

Update #1: Apparently the page isn't linkable, so you'll just have to send a resume to me. The outsourced jobs site apparently uses POST or something just as dumb and unlinkable.

Update #2: The job is at Yahoo HQ in Sunnyvale, CA.

Are you fooling?

Several folks at work announced that they're changing jobs soon. The announcements were along the lines of "when I get back from vacation, I'll be taking a new position doing..."

Of course, nobody knows what to believe, being April 1st and all.

If they're legit, we need to slap these guys for picking the worst possible day to make such an announcement. If not, then we'll soon know how many people were fooled.

Personally, I don't know what to believe. I'm suspicious of just about everything I read on April 1st.

On a related note, I was really hoping that The Onion would do something extra special today. But it seems not. Oh, well.
