Yahoo! is hiring for hundreds of job openings including nearly 150 vacancies in India, even as the internet major is set to bring down its global workforce by about 675 employees.
“We are currently hiring for key positions and will continue to invest in strategically important areas,” a Yahoo! spokesperson based in the US said in an e-mail.
While the spokesperson did not elaborate on country-specific hiring plans, the career section of the internet major’s website shows that Yahoo! is looking for about 150 positions in India alone.
The openings are for its operations in Bangalore, Mumbai and New Delhi, while most of them are for Bangalore.
Further, the internet major has over 120 job vacancies for different offices in the US, the website shows.
The India openings are for various departments including engineering, customer care, research and product management, among others.
Last week, while announcing its first quarter results on April 21, Yahoo! said that it would slash five per cent of its headcount worldwide.
At present, the company has 13,500 employees globally and a five per cent reduction would amount to laying off 675 people.
