The way we work is evolving, and our priority is always putting our people first. With our remote model, our employees can live where it makes sense for them while building a rewarding career. We believe that autonomy promotes productivity and success, and the flexibility of remote work empowers employees to achieve work-life fit.
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. You could be 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 where they work.
Work designed around you, not an office
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.
A new way to work
A survey of Yelp employees found 86% of respondents said they prefer to work remotely most or all of the time, 87% reported that working remotely has made them more effective at work and 93% of employees and their managers reported they can meet their goals remotely.
Flexibility to live life on your terms
Yelp’s remote work model allows our employees to regain valuable time to spend on things like childcare or personal hobbies that would otherwise have been spent commuting.
Your ideas are seen and heard
Our meetings continue to happen in a digital space, even if you decide to work 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 gatherings to catch up with colleagues or learn something new.
Monthly WFH reimbursement
All remote employees are eligible for a monthly work-from-home reimbursement to cover the costs of working from home, such as internet and phone bills.
Create a space you'll love
Employees are eligible to receive a one-time reimbursement to purchase office-related items to help make your workspace more comfortable and productive.
A better way to work, according to you.
"The best thing about working from home is that I get to see my two-year-old son Adonis all the time now."
Solomon O. Senior 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
"There are a lot of pros to working from home, but I most enjoy being able to be here with my two dogs. With both of them being older, I'm grateful to have every moment I can with them. "
Mary T. Associate Manager, Revenue Operations
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.
A virtual environment brings folks from different locations together and allows them to celebrate and understand one another's diversity, lift each other up, and build stronger communities. There are over 20 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.
Though most of the work at Yelp is done virtually, we do believe in intentional in-person collaboration. Yelp hosts IRL (In Real Life) gatherings throughout the year to allow teams to collaborate, learn and spend quality time in person.
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’re committed to investing in your personal and professional growth with effortless, modern and purpose-driven learning experiences that go beyond the basics. From the beginning of your career at Yelp, you’ll be on a path designed to help you achieve your goals in both work and life.
Individual contributors Take control of your development. Yelp's Learning & Development team provides access to both on-demand and virtual instructor-led sessions, such as goal setting, professional development, feedback, time management and more.
Managers and leaders Elevate your existing managerial skills to become an engaging leader by participating in the Leadership Essentials and Development (LEAD) Program and leveraging additional curated on-demand content. This program helps our leaders to strengthen camaraderie and engagement through team-building and development sessions.
Our commitment to maintaining an equitable and safe environment for everyone
We want to build on our existing strong and collaborative culture by creating an environment that supports and fosters a thriving remote workforce. We're focused on equity in opportunities for career advancement, whether you're a remote employee or spending a few days a week at one of our offices.
