Top CEOs: 2015 (#22)
Yelp will now let you create and share itineraries as well as keep tabs on your favorite businesses http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQKs3 via Fortune
We're celebrating Deaf Awareness Week at Yelp and talking all about the American Sign Language classes we offer our employees: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQWOi
We’re passionate about connecting people with great local businesses. A career at Yelp means helping to change the way businesses and consumers interact. We’re bringing together world-class talent from different backgrounds, disciplines, and areas of study to produce an inclusive and stimulating environment. Our focus is on the development of each person walking through our doors, because that’s what makes Yelp tick - community. At the end of the day, we enjoy what we do – and we work well together doing it.
At Yelp, we believe that diversity is an expression of all the unique characteristics that make us human: race, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, and education — and that’s just a few. We’re committed to increasing diversity and transparency both here at Yelp and in Silicon Valley.
The foundation of our diversity efforts is closely tied to Yelp’s core values: Play Well With Others and Authenticity. We cultivate our diverse interests through Employee Resource Groups. Programming for these groups is funded and activities are organized to foster employee engagement, professional development, and business insights. Our Employee Resource Groups include Awesome Women in Engineering, ColorCoded, DiverseBurst, OUTburst, Women at Yelp, Yelp Cares, Yelp Moms, Yelp Parents and Yelp United. We also have a dozens of Yelp Affinity Groups where employees can connect over shared interests like cooking, camping, and juggling!
For more on our diversity initiatives and what we’re working on at Yelp, visit our post on the official blog: Building a More Inclusive Yelp.
Yelp’s Engineering and Product teams connect millions of people with great local businesses. Our work is driven by our values. We’re a cooperative team that prioritizes individual authenticity and encourages “unboring” solutions to problems. With the support of their mentors, managers, and teammates, new hires contribute to the product in their first week, and their impact only grows from there. At the end of the day, we’re all about advocating for our users, growing as people, and having fun in a collaborative environment.
Play Well With Others
We believe in mentorship. Whether you’re a new grad or tenured member of the team, you’ll have the chance to both learn from and teach your peers in a friendly, collaborative environment.
We’re never satisfied with the status quo. We prioritize researching new technologies and making improvements across the organization. We also love to give back and open source our work.
We encourage our employees to be who they are, and we cultivate a sense of belonging through employee resource and affinity groups like Awesome Women in Engineering, Colorcoded, DiverseBurst, and more.
Protect The Source
We care deeply about our end users. We’ve taken an active role in protecting consumers by offering restaurant health scores and hospital statistics, and helping business owners acknowledge that they’re open to all.
Our quarterly Hackathons ensure we stay creative. From building custom video games to creating a new photo classification algorithm, Hackathons provide our teams with unstructured time to work on one of a kind projects.
In 2019, we’re invested in building products that help make planning a date night or fixing a leaky pipe easier than ever. You can keep tabs on our work here or learn more about joining our team here.
About Yelp Sales Development Program
Know where you stand. In the Yelp Sales Development Program, promotions are earned by working hard and working smart. A transparent development plan outlines what you need to be doing every day, month and quarter to reach the next level. Increased compensation as well as additional responsibilities keep your career moving. Find what you excel at and make it a career.
Yelp is growing by the minute, and we’re looking for ambitious, energetic individuals to join our Sales Teams! If you're a brave leader who's passionate about local businesses, online advertising, and looking for a uniquely rewarding inside-sales development program, then we're the place for you.
We offer our employees solid base salaries that increase based on their individual performance; extensive initial and ongoing training; and a comfortable, energetic, world-class work environment with free food and an awesome office! We have a structured professional development program that provides a clear path to increased responsibility, a better title, and of course, more money!
This program is structured as a two-year crash course in sales and online advertising. At the end of that period, depending on your performance, you can move into a higher-level sales role at Yelp, whether that be in Sales Management or National Sales. Whatever you decide, we'll will help you get there.
Cast your textbook aside, this is where marketing in social media comes alive! Join Yelp as a Marketing Intern and gain real marketing experience to real people!
Community Managers in over 70 Yelp communities are responsible for marketing, PR, other social media outlets, event planning, e-newsletter campaigns, and various odds and ends on the local level —but they can’t do it alone! Yelp Marketing Interns play an integral part in supporting activities designed to rally the Yelp community both online and off.
Want to apply?
Yelp wants interns to work side-by-side with our passionate, creative software developers. That's right, each intern at Yelp has a mentor and substantial projects to work on during their time here. We are looking for students who wish to gain experience at a growth stage startup by working on real work projects for our site. One caveat, though, we would need those projects pushed to Yelp.com immediately as we use continuous deployment.
Something we take a lot of pride in is our space we use for hosting meetup groups and tech talks. Yelp is looking for interns that want the chance to meet and greet with the best and most dynamic engineers in the Valley.
Engineers-in-training at Yelp!
We love interns at Yelp! And since we are such a small, agile team, we can take on Product Manager interns around the clock. If you are looking to gain experience at a cool start-up and do real work, then this is the place. Join us as an intern and have a real impact on our mobile apps, yelp.com or our services for business owners.
Think you've got the design skills to wow over 58 million users each month? Then Yelp wants to hear from you. We're looking for a designer that can create world class user interfaces that visually amaze but are simple to use. We are currently looking for summer interns.
The glue that keeps Yelp together, our “General and Administrative” crew consists of everyone and anyone outside of sales and engineering! From Legal to local Community Managers, Finance to Recruiting Coordinators, User Operations to Accounting, G&A covers it all.
Whether you’re a marketing guru or a whiz with numbers, Yelp is seeking enthusiastic, pro-active, and innovative individuals to join the Yelptastic team in SF, Phoenix, or NY!
I have been working at Yelp full-time (More than 3 years)
supportive culture, quick career growth, amazing product, great benefits and corporate support.
Honestly my time at Yelp has been unlike anywhere else. I was expecting another "sales" position but was pleasantly surprised to be imursed into a culture where my peers and managers honestly cared abot my growth and paved the way for my future. I was able to quickly move up the ladder and create a career under an amazing name. I've been here 4 years already and cant imagine ever leaving. The culture and what the company stands for are honestly some of the best I've seen.
I have honestly never had any complaints about the company minus your typical lulls you'll face at any job
Advice to Management
Keep being honest and working 1:1 with myself and reps to pave the path.
I applied online. I interviewed at Yelp (Los Angeles, CA).
Applied online. A regional manager reached out to me via e-mail and arranged a skype interview. After that, I was moved along to the writing test which had 3 questions. Then had 3 more skype interviews with another senior community manager and senior executives in the community department. Overall, it was a great experience and everyone I spoke to seemed to love working for Yelp.
