Yahoo’s APM Program

Start your career by learning to be a top-notch product manager with our 2-year rotational program!

 

What is the Yahoo APM Program?

We’re looking for aspiring product managers to help us build the future of media and technology. As a continuation of the historic Yahoo APM program, Verizon Media continues to offers Yahoo APMs an even larger product portfolio and opportunities for impact. For a full list of companies within the Verizon portfolio, check out our brands page.

 

Two Years, Two Teams

Over the course of two years, you will drive the product vision, strategy, and roadmap for two different teams.

APM Trip

Between rotations, you will travel with fellow APMs to intimately learn how to build global products.

Mentorship and Resources

Hone your product leadership skills by meeting regularly with senior product leaders and executive coaches. You'll also participate in planned activities such as book clubs, tech conferences, and social events.
