Collaboration goes way beyond the walls of an office. The flexibility to work in a way that fits your lifestyle creates more possibilities for great ideas to come to life. You could be a Software Engineer in London collaborating with a Project Manager in San Francisco. Or an Account Executive in Boston cheering for your teammate in Phoenix. Wherever you are, every person at Yelp has a seat at the table with equal chances of success and opportunity, regardless of whether they are working from home or from a Yelp office.
Choose a great way to work
Our work model puts you (not offices) first by giving you greater flexibility to live where you want, and work where you’ll feel most productive.
Most of our colleagues work from the comfort of their home.
Flexibility to live life on your terms Gain back valuable time that would have otherwise been spent commuting to take care of things like childcare and personal hobbies.
Your ideas are seen and heard, even from home Our meetings continue to happen in a digital space, even if the host is working from a Yelp office. This creates a more even playing field where all participants have the same opportunity to contribute.
Stay connected to your peers Join regularly scheduled virtual events and team offsites to catch up with your peers or learn something new.
Create a space you'll love As a new employee, you can receive a one-time reimbursement of *$300 for purchases to help make your workspace more comfortable and productive. *in your local currency
From a nearby Yelp office
Missing in-person collaboration, creativity, coffee chats, and hallway conversations?
Optional office days Coming into the office will be optional unless your role or visa specifically requires it — if you aren't comfortable with working in an office setting, you're welcome to work from home.
Desk reservation You can choose to drop in from time to time and reserve a desk for the day. You can also access shared workspace for collaboration and reserve quiet conference rooms for meetings.
Amenities with a purpose Our offices include amenities that foster a culture of collaboration and creativity for our distributed teams. Plus, you'll have access to fully-stocked kitchens and all the snacks you can eat!
COVID-19 safety Safety is our top priority and we have policies and protocols in place to keep our employees and communities safe.
A better way to work, according to you.
"The best thing about working from home is that I get to see my 2 year old son Adonis all the time now."
Solomon O. Local Sales Manager
"Not having a commute has been the best part about working from home. I bought a standing desk a few months ago, which has been a game-changer."
Dorothy J. Engineering Manager
"Having time to be with family and to be able to self-reflect and reset has been amazing. "
Erica L. Sr. Elite Local Client Director 3
"I enjoy the thought of being able to have flexibility with my personal life as well. It is much easier to exercise or cook a good meal during the day."

Yelp team spirit knows no boundaries
Every person belongs. Our culture is defined by much more than great perks. Brilliant people are what make Yelp such a great place to work.
Virtual gatherings. True connections.
A virtual environment allows folks from any location to come together to celebrate and understand each other's diversity, lift eachother up, and build stronger communities. There are over 17 Yelp Employee Resource Groups (YERGs) that regularly host virtual talks, events, and panels for folks with shared social identities, characteristics, or life experiences, as well as their allies. You can attend virtual events whether you choose to work from home or a Yelp office.
We've got a special delivery! Every quarter, thousands of Yelp Care Packages are packed and shipped to our team members across the world. Packages are often designed to honor community celebrations like Black History Month, Pride Month, and Women's History Month, to name a few. Each box is filled with various goodies and snacks that support local and minority-owned businesses on Yelp.
No matter your work location, we value your success and career progression.
