Looking for HTTP / Web services people

Tags: , , , , Filed under: Written in Englishhugo @ 18:18

My group at Yahoo! is looking for talented people to join our team. We build tools and infrastructure for developing Web services in the company (the HTTP kind, not the SOAP one), and we also set standards and provide guidance to developers when designing them. We are part of the Yahoo! Open Strategy group.

We’re looking for different profiles:

  • People with knowledge of Web services technologies and concepts: XML, JSON, HTTP, resources, etc.
  • Developers coding in C/C++, who understand HTTP; knowing how to write PHP, Perl, Java extensions a plus
  • Developers coding in C/C++, who understand HTTP and in particular authentication; knowledge of Apache internals a plus
  • A product manager for those tools and working with the rest of the company

If you’d like to join the fun, drop me an email.
