Yelp Engineering is filled with master jugglers, pro helicopter flyers, and expert coders, and we are looking for strong leaders to continue growing this talented team. Average team size is small and you will work in lock step with the product team to get features out the door quickly. To succeed, you must be passionate about Yelp, keep up with our daily release cycles, and maintain our useful, funny, cool culture during times of immense growth. It also doesn't hurt to impress us with your technical chops! Ready to take us from big to big time?
What You Will Do:
Lead complex technical projects and a team of software engineers.
Roll up your sleeves and code alongside your team.
Provide frequent and constructive feedback.
Able to coach and mentor junior and new college graduates.

We Are Looking For:
Previous experience as a technical lead or manager.

Command of your favorite modern programming language: Python, Ruby, Java, Objective-C, C++, etc.

This year we're focused on three things:
Amazing features specifically for the creators of Yelp's unmatched local review content - namely our incredible community.
International expansion - bringing Yelp to the world.
Closing the loop with local businesses - Yelp Platform and more tools to help businesses see the value they're getting from Yelp.
