Data Science Analyst

At Yelp Data Science, we see our 100M+ reviews not only as a great source of information about the best salted caramel ice cream in SF, but also as a vast storehouse of data. We leverage that data to connect our users with great local businesses. We work tightly with the product and engineering teams to find the opportunities hidden in usage data and the features hidden in our user generated content.  Data science at Yelp answers questions ranging from who is likely to love a certain flavor of ice cream to which features are likely to move the needle...and we define the needle.
We’re looking for a Data Analyst to contribute to these Data Science efforts at Yelp.  In this role you’ll be tackling a variety of projects ranging from analysis of A/B tests and user behavior, to data-driven blog posts and product insights. As your role grows you’ll identify new questions that need answers, and provide those answers using tools and frameworks that you and your teammates have created.


  • Minimum BA/BS degree in Statistics, Math, Physics, Economics, Computer Science or related analytical discipline Endless ideas about how to leverage Yelp's unique data set
  • Experience with data analysis and data visualization in either academic or professional capacity
  • Experience with analytical and quantitative problem solving
  • Familiarity with relational databases and SQL
  • Excellent typing ability in the presence of flying nerf darts


  • Experience with Python
  • Experience with analysis tool(s) such as Pandas or R
  • Experience building visualizations in one or more toolsets (d3, tableau, matplotlib, ggplot, etc)
