Yahoo has snagged a Googler, adding Yoelle Maarek from Google's Haifa Engineering Center to its ranks.
The company announced Friday that Maarek would be joining Yahoo Labs as co-leader of Yahoo's Haifa Lab in Israel. Maarek, also a veteran of IBM Research, specializes in search technologies.
Maarek's most noteworthy contribution at Google was probably Google Suggest, developed by a team she led at Google's Haifa Engineering Center. Google Suggest is the term for the search terms that appear below the query box as you type in the first few letters of a query.
