Yelp is the richest source of local business data and user-generated content in the world, and our application backend engineers use that data to power our websites and mobile apps. As an application backend engineer you’ll be working closely with mobile and web application developers to bring our 100M+ reviews to millions of users all around the world.
Application backend engineers are taking on a diverse set of challenges across Yelp engineering. Want to make a huge impact on our users looking for the best local businesses? Build products for business owners to get the most out of Yelp? Take on some of the most meaningful problems in distributed computing and API design? What about making Yelp an authentic, local experience in over thirty countries? We'd love to talk. We are an agile team that creates an amazing experience for millions of Yelpers.
Yelp engineering culture is driven by our values: we’re a cooperative team that values individual authenticity, and encourages “unboring” solutions to problems. We enable all new engineers to deploy working code their first week, and your impact will only grow from there with the support of your manager, mentor and team. At the end of the day, we are all about helping our users, growing as engineers, and having fun in a collaborative environment.
Yelp connects people with great local businesses. Our users have contributed over 100 million reviews of almost every type of local business, from restaurants, boutiques and salons to dentists, mechanics, plumbers and more. Our business revolves around the connections made between the consumers who read and write reviews and the local businesses that they describe. Yelp was founded in San Francisco in July 2004.
Our culture is very much focused on collaboration and mentorship. We ensure that everyone gets support and the opportunity to grow their career within Yelp. We have several Employee Resource Groups at Yelp that encourage Diversity and Inclusion and offer opportunities to grow your skill sets both personally and professionally thanks to programming focussed around mentoring, public speaking, allyship etc. Yelp cares truly about our community and you can see that naturally reflected in our culture.
