Yahoo recruiting iOS developers to 'radically improve' Flickr

Zach Miners | May 7, 2013
Yahoo's Flickr mobile app may be getting a completely new look in the months to come, as the company seeks to hire multiple iOS engineers to "radically improve" the photo-sharing site's app and attract new users, the company said in a recent job notice.

"Flickr has been neglected for a long time until recently," he said. By bringing on more talent to improve the app, possibly from the ground up, Yahoo could be trying to make Flickr a stronger social property for the company, Sterling said, in the way that Instagram is to Facebook.

"Yahoo could be looking at Instagram as a model of where they want to take Flickr," he said.

Flickr has more than 75 million users, according to Yahoo.
