Role Description

Do you want to build and manage scaleable, self-healing, globally-distributed systems? Our Site Reliability engineers keep Yelp fast, available, and growing, connecting users to great local businesses. No matter how many times we get searched, scraped, scanned, spammed, pinged, paged, or queried, we gotta keep our cool - and keep the site running smoothly.

We work in both the dev and systems worlds, implementing key parts of the core architecture and supporting devs as they try to do the same. We get to tackle interesting challenges that you can only find at the kind of scale that serves over 100 million users per month.

You'll work to empower product teams and developers: at Yelp, spinning up infrastructure should always be a git commit and a code review away: automation and self-service are at the core of what we do.

Where You Come In: Work closely with developers in supporting new features and services Build tools to monitor site stability and performance Help scale our AWS-based infrastructure (no racking servers or swapping hard drives here!) Troubleshoot site issues using industry-leading tools like Splunk and SignalFX Automate everything with Puppet, Git, Jenkins, and Terraform Develop custom tools when off-the-shelf solutions don’t work at our scale and contribute upstream to open source projects Design new systems, tests, and procedures Participate in light on-call rotations - we have geographically distributed SRE teams for follow-the-sun support, which means no 2:00 AM pages!

About Yelp

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.

Company Culture

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.
