We're a collaborative team building platforms that connect millions of people with great local businesses.
About Yelp Engineering
Our work is driven by our values. We’re a cooperative team who prioritizes individual authenticity and encourages innovative solutions to problems. As a newly hired engineer, you’ll be enabled to contribute to the product your very first week on the team. With the support of your mentors, managers, and teammates, your impact only grows from there. At the end of the day, we’re all about advocating for our users, growing as people, and having fun in a collaborative environment.
We're committed to building & scaling products that help our users make more informed decisions on anything from planning a date night to fixing a leaky pipe. You can keep tabs on our work here.
Why Yelp Engineering?
We Play Well With Others
We encourage autonomy balanced with teamwork and support, and enjoy the time we spend together helping one another grow. Whether you’re a new Yelper or tenured member of the team, you’ll have the chance to both learn from and teach your peers in a friendly, collaborative environment.
We’re Not Satisfied With Status Quo
At Yelp, you will be empowered to solve novel, impactful, and challenging problems, all while researching new technologies and making improvements across the organization. We develop real solutions for real businesses, and love to give back and open source our work.
We Embrace Authenticity
We strive to create the best work environment possible and do so by bringing our authentic selves to work. We encourage our employees to be who they are, and we cultivate a sense of belonging through employee resource and affinity groups like Awesome Women in Engineering, Colorcoded, DiverseBurst, and many more.
We Care About Our Users
We create tools, products, and features that help local communities, and we care deeply about doing this in a way that is inclusive to all. We’ve taken an active role in protecting consumers by offering restaurant health scores and hospital statistics, and helping business owners acknowledge that they’re open to all.
