Yandex, a leading technology and digital services company, is actively seeking to expand its global workforce to support and grow its advertising business abroad, with a particular focus on Latin America.

The company has announced job openings aimed at bolstering the Yandex advertising network (YAN) in Chile, highlighting the region’s dynamic growth potential and its strategic importance to Yandex’s international ambitions.

The search for new talent comes as Yandex aims to tap into foreign markets where its presence is less established compared to its home base in Russia.

Despite the smaller foreign audience, the company notes that its international segments, particularly in Latin America, are witnessing more dynamic growth. This expansion strategy underscores Yandex’s commitment to becoming a significant player in the global digital advertising space.

Among the key positions Yandex seeks to fill are the head of international operations, business development manager, and legal consultant with the right to practice law in Chile.

These roles are critical to the company’s efforts to support its adtech products, online services, and marketing projects abroad. The legal consultant position is particularly vital, ensuring that Yandex’s operations align with local regulations and legal frameworks, a crucial factor for success in international markets.

This strategic move by Yandex is governed by certain restrictions as outlined in the company’s dealings with its Dutch counterpart, Yandex NV.

A non-compete agreement (NCA) in place for five years prevents Yandex NV from creating services that directly compete with Yandex’s main offerings. This agreement is a significant aspect of Yandex’s strategy, ensuring that its expansion efforts are not undermined by internal competition, and it allows the company to focus on capturing market share in new regions.

Yandex’s push into international markets, especially in Latin America, is a clear signal of the company’s ambition to diversify its audience and increase its global footprint in the digital advertising industry.

By recruiting specialized talent in key areas, Yandex aims to overcome the challenges of entering new markets, adapting to local needs, and capitalizing on the growth opportunities that these regions present. As Yandex continues to expand its international operations, it sets the stage for a more interconnected and competitive global digital landscape.
