Last week we had informed our readers about how Yahoo! Inc. was planning for job cuts to streamline consumer-facing and ad-focused business units. However, according to Business Standards, Yahoo! India on the contrary is planning to hire about 400 new employees for the year 2008. These recruitments are centered around the Yahoo! Center of Excellence in Bangalore, that is responsible for emerging Asian markets such as India, Singapore, South East Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America. Among the openings that are to be filled in, most of them are for the profile of architects, user experience designers (UEDs), program managers among many others. According to Pranesh Anthapur (COO, Yahoo! India Research and Development), “Yahoo has been able to rollout its public Beta for Glue, which is an alternative search. India is now a favoured market for rolling out products for many firms today.”
