Are you the person who leads their team in replacing an aging system, or dives into the guts of a running system to fix that bug everyone is happy to gloss over? Do you love making complex systems easy to use, resilient, & scalable? Keep reading.
Yelp connects people with great local businesses, but who connects search queries to 180M+ reviews on millions of businesses in under 400 milliseconds? Who selects the perfect ad from millions of options in the blink of an eye? And after that user has found the perfect restaurant & is happily munching on their quinoa salad, who makes sure our logs are transported, transformed, & indexed so we can do even better next time? We do! The platform engineers at Yelp make these systems work fast, efficiently, & at scale.
We're looking for experienced engineers to join our team & build elegant, scalable platforms that bring the potential of data streams to Yelp's features teams. From transporting events reliably between services & datastores with Kafka to processing massive streams of data in real-time with Flink & Beam, our team offers simple abstractions to power a whole host of personalized experiences for Yelp's users & drive optimizations for Yelp's advertising businesses.
Yelp engineering culture is driven by our values: we're a cooperative team that values individual authenticity & encourages unboring solutions to problems. New hires are expected to deploy working code their first week, & your impact will only grow from there with the support of your manager & mentor. At the end of the day, we're all about helping our users, growing as engineers, & having fun in a collaborative environment.
