I have been working as SWE since the original Yahoo! Inc. A series of the name change had me confused what to write on my resume?
2016: Yahoo! Inc.
2017: Yahoo Holdings
2018: Oath Holdings
2019: Verizon Media
I do have the name change documents for each time the company's name has changed. So background checks are not a problem here.
Looking for comments from the hiring managers, the senior engineers, and the recruiters at other companies.

- New slash.com1. Yahoo is the better known brand.
2. Companies owned by another, bigger, company isn't an unusual thing. Think car companies, or closer - linkedin folks keep the brand in their resumes, don't they?
