Your Day

* Work on small, collaborative teams to implement engineering- and product-driven features
* Collaborate with analysts and business leaders to formulate and execute data-driven market strategies
* Partner with Operations and Production professionals to ensure that your solutions are functioning as intended in production
* Research and test solutions to a challenging set of real-time, open-ended problems
* Present your work and its results to all members of our staff and to other groups within Yahoo

You Must Have

* 2 years' experience working in an object-oriented language
* Experience developing services, APIs, and UIs (Javascript/HTML/CSS)
