Yahoo: number of full-time employees 2007-2016 This statistic represents the number of Yahoo's employees between 2007 and 2016. In the most recently reported year, the California-based American multinational internet company had 8,500 full-time employees, down from 10,400 employees in previous year.
Yahoo is a California-based, multinational technology company which started out in 1994 as a directory of hierarchically organized websites. The company has since grown to be known worldwide for its search engine, Yahoo Search, and the Yahoo web portal, which brings together various services, such as Yahoo News, Yahoo Finance, Yahoo Answers and most notably Yahoo Mail. In fact, a 2015 ranking of most popular single websites in the United States, based on share of visits, shows Yahoo Mail as the second most popular e-mail provider, after Google’s Gmail. As of 2015, the Yahoo websites cumulated more than 200 million unique visitors per month, making Yahoo the second-most popular multi-platform web property in the United States, after Google.

Aside from providing services for global internet users, Yahoo also has a strong network of branches around the world. Its headquarters are in Sunnyvale, California, while a number of additional offices are located in 25 other territories. As of 2015, there are a number of 10,400 Yahoo employees worldwide, down from 14,300 in 2007, in addition to many other temporary and internship positions. Like many other tech companies, Yahoo says it is committed to promoting diversity among its personnel, but the majority of its staff is male and white. As of 2015, most Yahoo employees worldwide are male and only 37 percent are female. And although the company’s current CEO and president is a woman, Marissa Mayer, females are underrepresented in both leadership and tech positions, where they occupy 16 and 24 percent of jobs respectively. In terms of ethnic diversity, as of 2015, some 47 percent of Yahoo employees in the United States are White and 43 percent Asian, while only 4 percent are Hispanic and 2 percent are African American. Furthermore, 73 percent of leadership positions are occupied by Caucasian employees and only one percent by African Americans, although this ethnic group is the second largest within the American population.
