Apparently Yahoo has no intention of stopping its acquisition spree. Just days after news came out that the company has acquired Wander, we learn that it has now acquired recruiting tool maker Distill.

The company's homepage has the announcement:

We are excited to share the news that the Distill team is off to start a new adventure! We are joining Yahoo. Prior to creating Distill, we were part of the original team behind the creation of Tapjoy, a mobile performance-based advertising platform that drove deep engagement and monetization opportunities for mobile app publishers. We’ll be drawing upon our expertise from the Tapjoy days to help build out Yahoo’s mobile advertising solutions.

As of today, we have stopped development of Distill Schedule and Distill Interview. You will still be able to schedule interviews through the end of February, and the Distill platform will remain available through Sunday, March 30, 2014. If you have any questions, concerns, or data requests, please contact us at, or reach out to your account manager directly.

We want to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to everyone at the awesome companies we have been working with, as well as the candidates who have met their future employers through Distill. It's been a fun ride for us, and we couldn’t have gotten this far without your help. Thank you!!

This makes number six in 2014 so far.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
