Yahoo! is focused on making the world's daily habits inspiring and entertaining. By creating highly personalized experiences for our users, we keep people connected to what matters most to them, across devices and around the world. In turn, we create value for advertisers by connecting them with the audiences that build their businesses.
Founded in 1994 by Stanford PhD candidates David Filo and Jerry Yang as a way for them to keep track of their personal interests on the Internet, Yahoo! has grown into a company that helps consumers find what they are looking for and discover wonders they didn’t expect. We keep consumers plugged into the topics and people they care about, helping them get more out of the digital world so that they can get more out of life.
Yahoo! is headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif., and has 11,500 employees in 25 countries, provinces, and territories.
