Group Product Manager - Core Experience

Yelp’s products are used by millions of people every day. At Yelp you’ll have an opportunity to make a real impact on a product you actually use. The team you’ll work with is small, scrappy, nimble, and fun. The culture at Yelp is a unique environment combining the best parts of being at a startup with the stability and resources of a successful public company. You’ll have full ownership of the product you’re working on and will be able make fast decisions in a highly collaborative, no-BS, no-bureaucracy environment.

As the Group Product Manager for our Core Experience team, you’ll focus on the parts of our app and website that are used by the vast majority of Yelpers. Namely, how people consume business information, read reviews, view photos, save places they love and anything else that touches the millions of people that discover businesses through Yelp. You’ll also work closely with our product design team to ensure that the feel and experience of Yelp keeps moving forward. It’s difficult to overstate the impact of this role.. your work will literally be seen by every user of the product!

What You Will Do:

  • Manage the team of product managers responsible for the core experience of our app and site.
  • Work closely with our design team to set the UX vision for the product.
  • Own your product area’s destiny and create roadmaps for the team to reflect this vision. 
  • Sift through our mountains of high-quality review and photo data to deliver personalized, contextual information to Yelp users.
  • Delve into the mechanics of generating high-quality user generated content to engage the community and grow reviews. 
  • Analyze data to understand key leverage points in the core product experience that will influence long-term user retention.
  • Get hands on! You’ll manage a team but also get a chance to define, manage, and ship products of your own!

We Are Looking For:

  • Management: You’ve managed a team of product managers, ideally in a consumer product-focused space.
  • Techie Cred: CS or similar degree so you can talk to our enginerds about Python, mapreduce jobs, and naive Bayesian algorithms without a translator.
  • Design Chops: While Yelp PMs hold technical degrees, we're also passionate about design and have either schooling or significant experience building beautiful apps or sites. You should, too. 
  • Passion about the Space: You love the world of user generated content, local search and consumer apps.
  • Non-Nerd Empathy: You're interested in Hacker News, Product Hunt, Twitter, etc. as much as the next nerd, but you also recognize that you're building for a non-techie audience. 
  • A Conditional Love for Yelp: Like a BFF or a tee ball coach, you should love us but also be able to tell us what we're doing wrong.  You'll need to be able to dish out the criticism here and take it, too.
  • Big Plus: You’ve had experience managing a product that focuses on user generated content, community building and/or social networking.
  • Flatter Us: Yelp Elite? Super Yelp Elite (10 year+)?? Not required, but we’ll be impressed.

Pursuant to the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance, we will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records.
