We’re looking for a great engineer to help us improve every aspect of our continuous integration (CI) process, including the way we build, document, test, and deploy our code. To succeed in this role, you’ll have to be:
YUI is an open source project, and many of the pieces you’ll be working with are part of the YUI ecosystem. That begins with our YUI Builder tools and extends to components of our existing CI process — tools like YUI Compressor, YUI Doc and YUI Test. You’ll have the opportunity to improve the tools themselves and to improve the way they’re documented and used.
The best part of any job in technology is having the chance to do influential work in an environment that both challenges and supports your growth. The YUI team provides just that confluence of characteristics: a huge, engaged community of users and developers and a team of brilliant engineers collaborating every day to improve the project.
