    :-(

  3. Do you ever have more jr level JS jobs? I’m fairly competent (i.e. closures, recursion, OOP, i18n etc.), but I’m not ‘there’ yet. Reading JS patterns (S. Stefanov) now and writing code in my spare time, but I’d really love to be able to focus on doing JS full time. Thanks!

    @Alex, positions on the YUI team are really for folks who have rock solid JS chops. That said, Yahoo is hiring at all levels, so you may want to check out our open positions at http://careers.yahoo.com. But the best way to demonstrate your chops is to contribute to the project, so fork away at http://github.com/yui/. Cheers!
