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 people uncover the best of the Web, more easily discover what they are looking for, and perhaps find something they didn’t expect.
Today, we’re a leading global brand that creates deeply personal digital experiences using technology, insights based on data, and intuition to bring together personally relevant content and experiences from across the Web. We give consumers across the globe simple, trusted ways to connect with the people, communities, topics, and trends that matter to them most.
Our business focus is on creating a content, communications, and community platform that delivers rich consumer experiences and advertising solutions across all digital screens.
We attract more than half a billion consumers every month in more than 30 languages — making Yahoo! one of the most visited and most trusted Internet destinations.
Yahoo! is headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif., and has more than 13,000 employees in 25 countries, provinces, and territories.
