Graphic Designer

The Yelp Creative Team is a small group of designers and writers with big ideas. Impromptu brainstorm sessions, animated gifs, and afternoon outings to Philz get our thoughts percolating. We collaborate daily to make work that stands out, but something’s missing from our team — and we’re hoping you’re the final piece to our puzzle.

We’ll know you’re the perfect fit because your portfolio will be overflowing with examples of impeccable design skills. Your creativity will speak for itself, but that shouldn’t stop you from telling us about it in your cover letter. (#humblebrags encouraged.)

The right designer will be an excellent communicator who will create compelling, cohesive content and advertising solutions within a growing internal creative department. The ideal candidate will have experience designing collateral for events and promotions for both print and digital, as well as strategizing, executing and analyzing.

  • Responsible for designing marketing materials that support many communities across the country.

  • Assist to ensure all marketing communications across various channels and departments remain consistent and align with strategic marketing goals.

  • This individual also develops strategy and tactics to create interest, demand, and recognition of the Yelp brand through the use of consistent advertising, traditional and digital marketing, and social media efforts.
