The Yelp Creative Agency is a boutique agency within an exciting brand. Yes, you read that right and we’re serious about revolutionizing how a successful brand operates creatively. This means we concept and develop strategies, content, and campaigns that connect Yelp with the rest of the world. So, it’s cool if you have all the dank memes but you should be able to tell a 360-degree, augmented reality story with them.

Bring your expert concepting and word-slinging skills to a role side by side with other writers, designers, and strategists to conceive, develop and produce effective campaigns and content for teams throughout the company. Although we have our fingers in many pies (we like to think they’re mostly banana creme), our mission remains at the heart of everything we do — to connect people to great local businesses. Currently, honing the Yelp voice in our product and marketing copy is at the top of our to-do list, and we’d love to hear your ideas.

Job details:

  • Own projects/workstreams, bringing creative ideas, content and concepts to life   
  • Collaborate with creative teams (strategists, designers, art directors) to develop concepts across all channels and platforms including web, mobile, social, physical, OOH, etc ...

  • 3-5 years of copywriting, conceptualization, editing, and the correct use of “you’re/your” in text messages
