Entry-Level Software Engineer - Backend (Biz Core Team)

Our Hamburg office is located in the heart of the city and brings with it the unique advantages of booming international teams, all of whom share the same floor and are brought together by the same goal: empowering Yelp’s business products.

Biz Core is a small team that strives for engineering excellence across our commerce-focused teams. That might mean building new APIs, improving testing across a range of services, or embedding with other groups to improve release and maintenance processes. If you’re passionate about high-quality code and maintaining a top-tier development ecosystem, you’ll fit right in.

With the support of your onboarding mentor, you’ll be encouraged to share your own opinions, come up with new ideas, and build your knowledge base. And if you're not familiar with a particular technology yet, don’t worry, we’ll help you get there!

Technologies we regularly use include ● Python ● MySQL ● SQLAlchemy ● Docker ● Swagger ● Cassandra ● Elastic Search ● Splunk ● Check out our GitHub page (https://yelp.github.io/) to find out more!

What You Will Do:

  • Design and build new systems to support our commerce organization
  • Work with a variety of technologies and systems, from deployment pipelines to RESTful APIs
  • Dig into the services that support our commerce organization and look for ways to make Yelp better every day
  • Advocate for best practices and champion new technologies

What We Are Looking For:

  • Experience with at least one dynamic language
  • Basic knowledge of at least one popular server-side framework (Django, Twisted, Rails, Pyramid, CodeIgniter, Play, etc.)
  • Desire to learn, share your knowledge, and always improve your engineer-self
  • Basic familiarity with a Linux environment
  • Belief in well-tested code
