Attention departing Yahoos: Microsoft is hiring in Silicon Valley

With some high-profile executive departures from Yahoo in the wake of its tie-up with Google, Microsoft is launching a recruiting push in Silicon Valley.

The company’s PR firm alerted us that Microsoft ran an ad today in the San Jose Mercury News in response to “increased hiring uncertainty in the Valley.”

The ad (1-page PDF) can be read as a broadside against Yahoo.

“There are now very few companies that remain truly committed to defining the future of search and online

advertising. Microsoft is one of them.”

It goes on to list some of the company’s recent steps in search, such as the cashback program and search distribution deal with H-P.

And you have to give them credit for being realistic. “We have a long way to go. It will be an exciting journey. Come join us,” the ad concludes.

A link to Microsoft’s Silicon Valley jobs board lists 161 open positions. The company already employs more than 2,000 people at its Mountain View campus.
