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.

The right designer will be an excellent communicator who will create compelling, cohesive content and advertising solutions within a growing internal creative department. This person will drive conceptualizing and implementation of design of solutions that meet our ecommerce strategies from concept to completions.

We’re wanting to expand on our transaction platform and allow our users to have more of a holistic experience, so the ideal candidate should have experience in the ecommerce space. From a design standpoint, this includes, iterating performance marketing solutions (including a lot of email and online marketing campaigns), collaborating with other teams to ensure the brand voice remains cohesive and in line with the Yelp mission and values. Experience in a role that is data driven and helping the team hit revenue goals is critical.

Job Details:

  • Responsible for designing email and online marketing campaign creatives
  • Concept and execute creative ideas across Yelp Transaction Platform (YTP) with a team of writers and designers.
  • Assist to ensure all marketing communications across various channels and departments remain consistent and align with strategic marketing goals.
  • Partner with other designers, copywriters, video team, engineers, and marketing managers to ensure quality in all aspects of campaign execution.
  • This individual also develops strategy and tactics to create interest, demand, and recognition of the YTP through the use of various channels


  • 2 - 5 years experience in graphic design working within a branding, advertising, agency or in-house environment, with ecommerce or retail exposure
  • Strong portfolio of conceptual work that demonstrates particular expertise across digital, and CRM/email marketing.
  • A degree in Design, Interactive Design, Visual Studies, or other design-related field is preferred.
  • Strong conceptual thinker.
  • Excellent communication, presentation and team/collaboration skills
  • Proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite.
  • Proven ability to prioritize and deliver exceptional design at high volumes under tight timelines.
  • Excellent visual design sense and a user-centered process - your portfolio should have examples of not only great design, but digital and consumer facing applications
  • A profound love for Yelp and local communities.

  • Please submit a resume, cover letter, portfolio of recent work, and a link to your glorious Yelp profile.
