Job Description

At Yelp, the Core Services team builds infrastructure, tools and libraries for Python backend services, including the server side of our mobile apps. Our mission is to allow Python backend developers to ship features quickly and efficiently and to provide them with the infrastructure they need to build robust and scalable features for our millions of users.

Are you passionate about building scalable and reliable software systems? Are you driven and motivated to challenge the status quo and work towards better solutions? Do you dive fearlessly into the guts of a running system to fix that bug everyone else is happy to gloss over? We'd love to talk!

Yelp engineering culture is driven by our values: we're a cooperative team that values individual authenticity, and encourages "unboring" solutions to problems. We work with new hires to ensure they are able to deploy working code in their first week -- and your impact will only grow from there with the support of your manager and mentor. At the end of the day, we are all about helping our users, growing as engineers, and having fun in a collaborative environment.

What You Will Do:

* Design, build and deploy scalable and reliable infrastructure for backend services and APIs.
* Innovate, design, and implement new tools and systems that will improve the development process.
* Work closely with other engineers within your group and across the entire product engineering organization to solve complex problems.
* Write code, document, participate in code reviews, and mentor other engineers.
* Support the software your team develops

What We Are Looking For:

* BS in Computer Science or a related field
* Experience of systems and application design, with an understanding of operational and reliability trade-offs
* Experience building scalable infrastructure platforms for microservices
* Experience designing APIs for backend services
* Experience building large-scale distributed systems
* Experience with containerization technologies such as docker, kubernetes, etc.
* The ability to dive into a new codebase and quickly fix bugs or add features
* Proficient in one of Python, Java,C++, or Go
* 4+ years of relevant industry experience, if you have less than 1 year of experience please consider applying for our New Grad positions.

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 those are just a few. We recognize that diverse backgrounds and perspectives strengthen our teams and our product. The foundation of our diversity efforts are closely tied to our core values, which include "Playing Well With Others" and "Authenticity."

We're proud to be an equal opportunity employer and consider qualified applicants without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, age, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital or family status, veteran status, medical condition or disability.

Pursuant to the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance, we will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records.

We are committed to providing reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities in our job application process. If you need assistance or an accommodation due to a disability, you may contact us at or 415-969-8488.
