Do you like getting pizza or egg rolls delivered to your door? How about booking a mani-pedi or a deep tissue massage from your phone? Have you ever needed a plumber or an electrician right away and wished you could magically make one appear? Yelp knows just the place, and we’re looking for technically savvy engineering managers to help grow the team that makes all those dreams come true for our users.
Yelp’s Commerce Platform is the money-moving machine that powers all of those great experiences. We build and maintain the APIs that all other teams use to handle customers, accounts, payments, subscriptions, and collections; our code powers both consumer-facing transactions (we love pizza!) and business-facing subscription products (we love local businesses!). We’ve also built the data pipelines that feed real-time financial information into data warehouses for the rest of Yelp to use.
What You Will Do:
Be accountable for the technical strategy of your team.
Lead complex technical projects and a team of software engineers.
Coach and mentor engineers of all experience levels.
Provide frequent and constructive feedback.
Collaborate with Product Managers on strategy and priority.
Roll up your sleeves and code alongside your team when needed.
Participate in the hiring process and help us find five-star talent.
Foster and grow a fun, diverse, inclusive culture that reflects Yelp’s values.
We Are Looking For:
A thoughtful, deliberative, and emotionally grounded leader.
Previous experience as a manager of an engineering team.
An excellent communicator, both in person and in technical writing.
You're comfortable working in a Unix environment.
You are confident and comfortable with your favorite modern programming language: Python, Ruby, Java, C++, whatever works…
Interested in applying? Sweet! Share with us why you want to work at Yelp and don't forget to mention any technical accomplishments and leadership successes.
Pursuant to the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance, we will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records.
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.
