Want to join a team where your work makes a significant impact? Yelp is the richest source of local business data & user-generated content in the world. Our backend engineers use that data to power our websites & mobile apps. As a remote backend engineer, you'll work closely with our mobile & web application developers to bring our 200M+ reviews to millions of users.
Backend engineers take on a diverse set of challenges across Yelp engineering. Do you want to make a positive impact on Yelpers 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 & API design? We'd love to share more about how our agile team creates an amazing experience for millions of users.
We believe in providing multiple avenues for mentorship. You'll be paired with a technical mentor on your team from day one. You'll also have the opportunity to participate in our structured Engineering & Product Mentorship Program, which pairs you with a mentor from outside of your own team. Additionally, we have a mentorship program run by Yelp's employee resource group, Awesome Women in Engineering (AWE). Yelp engineering culture is driven by our values: we're a cooperative team that values individual authenticity, & encourages creative solutions to problems. We enable all new engineers to deploy working code their first week, & your impact will only grow from there with the support of your manager, mentor & team. At the end of the day, we are all about helping our users, growing as engineers, & having fun in a collaborative environment.
We'd love to have you apply, even if you don't feel you meet every single requirement in this posting. At Yelp, we're looking for great people, not just those who simply check off all the boxes.
This opportunity is fully remote & does not require you to be located in the Toronto area. We welcome applicants from throughout Canada.
