Sr. Manager, Research Engineering, Bangalore

The goal of Yahoo! Research is to be a world-class research organization whose mission is to develop the new sciences of the Internet on which the next generation of Yahoo! products and services will be based. To support our cutting-edge research agenda, we are growing a corps of Research Engineers, who will work together with our Research Scientists to develop novel software solutions for problems in search and information retrieval, machine learning, computational linguistics, matrix and graph algorithms, unsupervised clustering, data mining, human-computer interaction/user experience, social media, and microeconomics - all at huge scale. We seek a dynamic leader to help manage the growth and development of these engineers.

Research Engineers participate as key contributors on several types of projects, including creation of large-scale research prototypes; rapidly evolving research experiments leading to novel insights and research publications; and development and maintenance of leading-edge research platforms to be used in multiple projects.

  • Coordinate closely with the Research Engineering team in the US to support Yahoo! Research.
  • Provide career management guidance to Yahoo! Research Engineers and conduct performance appraisals.
  • Manage rapid prototyping and end-to-end execution of external-facing Research software applications and demos, while ensuring adequate performance and security.
