The MyBlogLog team is settling into their cozy space in the Berkeley office (home of Yahoo! Research Berkeley) and we’re now starting to build out the team (if you didn’t already know, MyBlogLog is a recent acquisition that we’re really excited about at Yahoo!)
You probably know that there are a few thousand people down at the Yahoo! HQ in Sunnyvale, and it’s a great place to work, but the Berkeley office is (like Berkeley itself) marches to a slightly different drummer. It’s a couple of blocks from the Downtown Berkeley BART and walking distance from great bars, movie theaters, and Thai food. There are spring days where you walk up to the Cheese Board for some pizza and find a jazz trio there to entertain you while you’re waiting — on a weekday. Only in Berkeley. Add in the fact that the newly-arrived MyBlogLog guys are just really great folks, and you’ve got a winning work combination.
So, without further ado, here’s what we’re hiring for. If you’re interested, send me an email (it’s chad, then add chaddickerson.com) and tell me why you deserve to be so lucky as to work with an excellent team in Berkeley, a town that writer Michael Chabon called “the most enraptured city in America on a daily basis.” I’ve lived in Berkeley for nine years, and it’s true.
