Jimmy was a college math major who saw computer programming as a hobby—until a speech from Bill Gates inspired him to start taking coding seriously. He immediately switched majors and wound through a number of careers, from start-ups to Amazon Kindle to owning his own business. But when Jimmy discovered Yelp, he knew he needed to make another change: He sold his business, joined the team, and has never looked back.
Jimmy gets into the office around 11 AM—just in time for the Daily Stand-Up Meeting. After lunch, he jumps into a number of one-on-one meetings with his team and helps team members pick the best ads for Yelp’s website and mobile apps. Jimmy also oversees the planning and documentation needed to deploy features, and he constantly coordinates with other teams across Yelp to ensure ads are seamlessly delivered.
