Japanese Business Intelligence Analyst

Here’s the job description for the Japanese BI Analyst position. Since I’m leaving Yahoo soon, I contacted the hiring manager as she still hasn’t been able to fill the position yet. The managers who interviewed me and I all agreed that it’s an extremely challenging but fun position. Unfortunately, they are looking for a Japanese person who’s fluent in Japanese. This is the only position that I’m interested in enough that would make me stay with Yahoo. So… I guess it’s time to say good-bye… 😦

    Job ID: RX1000018910
    Department: Intl YST HQ Expense-Site Ops & Streaming
