YP is Hiring!

YP – Why Work For Us?



YP is a group of Doers who help local businesses and communities grow which is proven by our Top 40 U.S. web and mobile property and the fact we are used by 70 million unique visitors each month.  Our people are the reason we are a Top 200 private company (Forbes) and the #2 in mobile advertising nationwide (IDC).

Don't take our word for it, here are what a few past and present employees are saying on various review sites:

  • “Lots of talented people to work with and learn from….”
  •  “The work life balance is great”
  •  “Flexible environment and competitive salary/benefits”
  •  “You work with smart people….some of the best you will see”
  •  "Benefits are wonderful, people are super nice and the work environment is awesome"

 Plus, did you see the picture above?  We have superpowers!




Every day we imagine new possibilities for connecting local businesses and consumers through the power of Web and mobile and then work together to make our vision reality. Never dull, our workplace culture is driven by creativity, collaboration and questioning the status quo.

Our people make the magic,

Our secret ingredient is our people, so we believe in equipping them for current and future roles and offering compensation and well-being benefits that provide peace of mind for their families.

We also believe in having fun! Our offices each have their own local flavor, from a game room and daily Nerf wars in Los Angeles to rubbing elbows with professional sports teams in Atlanta.



We believe people should have peace-of-mind from day to day, and real help when the going gets tough.

Our employees can choose from several benefits:

  • YP Academy learning & career development
  • YP Cares corporate social responsibility program
  • Health Savings Accounts
  • Flexible Spending Accounts
  • Life & Disability Insurance
  • 401k Plan
  • Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
  • PTO
  • Company Holidays

Lastly, FUN!  We believe in enjoying what you do and strive to create a healthy work place.  Many of our benefits such as standing desks are from our grassroots and employee led Culture Club.

    Great colleagues, excellent pay--if you're successful which fortunately I am.
