At Yelp, it's our mission to connect people with great local businesses. Yelp's unique dataset contains billions of interactions between users & businesses around the globe, from a review of a coffee shop to requesting a repair quote with a photo of a leaky faucet. Data Scientists at Yelp work to make sense of these interactions to deliver impactful analyses & products to our users, business partners & the general public.
The Data Science & Analytics team performs analyses, builds models, & designs experiments that directly impact Yelp's products & users. Our teams sit in Yelp's central product management organization & work directly with cross-functional leaders to understand quantitatively how our products are performing & where the largest opportunities are. We are adept at tasks like modeling user preferences, inference from user & marketplace experiments, & generating insights about the health of local economies. With diverse backgrounds & expertise, we strive for learning & growth in a collaborative environment.
We are looking for a Lead Data Scientist to join the Core Local Business team. The team is centrally located within our product organization, & focused on analytics, research, & inference support for product & engineering stakeholders. The Core Local Business team partners with product & engineering teams building the Yelp for Business Owners user experience, from claiming a free business listing, to paid product acquisition, & long-term engagement & retention. Lead Data Scientists at Yelp are technical & cultural leaders within their teams, & collectively influence the development of shared tools, infrastructure, & processes across the organization.
