Hear from one of the Livestand Engineers
Like most engineers, Daivak Shah likes building things from the ground up. So naturally, when presented with the opportunity to help create Livestand for Yahoo!, Daivak jumped at the chance. The Senior Engineering Manager for Livestand describes the initiative a “content eco-system,” weaving together the vast amount of content that Yahoo has at its disposal into a rich, custom-tailored experience for consumers, advertisers and publishers. Being able to take an active role in building this game-changing user experience has kept Daivak invested in Yahoo “I feel passionate about what I’m building and I’m enjoying what I’m working on.”

Jijin: Never Fail to Make an Attempt

Posted: 12th of October, 2011

Project Manager, Yahoo Small Business

In my role at Yahoo Small Business, I am responsible for managing the process and product updates - coordinating product releases and ensuring a smooth ramp-up so that our end-users are not affected.

We are part of the customer advocacy group which handles Yahoo Small Business products such as e-commerce, hosting and domains; and are responsible for critical users and revenue generating customers and a potential failure in this group could have drastic impact. And that’s what makes my role interesting and challenging every day.

I complete 4 years with Yahoo in 2011. My journey has been a rather life-changing experience – with every job, one faces ups and downs, but the important thing I have learned at Yahoo is to never give up. Here, we simply learn from our mistakes and move on in pursuit of our goals.

In all these years, there have been some awesome moments – the beer fests, the regular foosball matches, and the annual bashes. The one that stands out is when I got a chance to speak with my hero, David Beckham – Yahoo!’s global ambassador!  I am still thrilled about it!

At Yahoo I found the opportunity I was looking for – from being just another techie to someone who stands out. I got the platform to enhance my tech as well as creative skills, and of course I got to master foosball.

So here I am, standing tall in my belief: “An attempt is never a failure, so never fail to make an attempt.”
