I was sent a link from Kayvan Kimyai who is also an SE in y!mail.
I have been an SE with Yahoo! for the last six years -- responsibilities include BCP retrofit, spam and abuse abatement, capacity planning and delivery, integration of new technologies.
Sure -- Kayvan has asked me to put together a short talk about How Yahoo SE Runs So Well for the 24th.
How to find good talent to recruit -- engineers with experience and juniors that can quickly learn in an operations/se environment
I am a Yahoo! Service Engineer supporting y!groups and y!mail. My current role is Tech Lead for Y!Mail ASE where I do capacity planning, integration of new features and other technical aspects of Yahoo! Mail.
