Do you love it when:

* The World Cup is at fever-pitch and there is small rectangle on a web page that shows live scores with a link to full match coverage

* The much awaited movie releasing this weekend and clicking on a small rectangle opens the window to a whole experience of exclusive trailers, video, links to book the movie tickets directly and also share the same with your friends and family 

* While searching for some great local restaurants for a much looked-forward-to candle-light dinner you find some great deals on your Yahoo homepage

Yes I love that too and I work everyday to make that rectangular box experience happen – and make it better, more personal. We call it creative and you call it ads.

We strive hard to make these experiences less distractive and more enjoyable. Approx 5 billion transactions take place on an average day – so there is a lot to scale. Such massive numbers and the kind of revenue impact our product has, gives me immense satisfaction after a hard day’s work.

Yahoo!s comfortable work environment adds an extra zing to my day. Some coffee breaks, a table- tennis match, maybe a round or two of Pool and the overall flexibility about doing things my way, makes it much easier to work on brain-crunching problems.

It’s been awesome 3 years. Every day here is special. Some great product launches, being part of YEFI, enjoying some of the TGIFs, Open Hack days, team outings, I am “The big fat Panda” moments; it’s so much fun. One of my most memorable moments was my first day as a YEFI teacher. I also remember the day, when we all go together and collected a significant fund to help a teacher from Parikrama (one of the local schools we partner with as a part of YEFI) undergo an emergency surgery. I felt so proud of Yahoo that day.

The Intern Experience

Posted: 19th of August, 2011

Get an internship experience that will make your friends and classmates purple with envy. It starts with the opportunity to network with some of the best minds in the business. This, while you work on a real assignment, that will make an impact on our business, and your future career.

From TIFR to Cornell, IIT to UCSB— you’ll have fellow interns from some of the best institutes in the world for company.

You certainly won’t be making copies and coffee runs here (unless you like coffee, or chai, in which case you’ll be spoilt for choice.)

Not your ordinary internship.

You’ll be amazed at the difference you can make—even in a few months. Maybe your code will be used by millions, or you’ll launch a marketing campaign, develop a new product strategy or an amazing GUI. Our interns have done that—and more.

You’ll also have lots of fun—volunteering within the community, networking and social events, and showcasing your work to top execs. You could even have the winning hack at our company-wide Hack Day.

If that’s not enough, you’ll also enjoy:

• Competitive compensation
• Travel to and from your internship
• The opportunity to be considered for a full-time position upon graduation

It’s no wonder many full-time Yahoos admit that they have intern envy!
