At Yelp, we are on a mission to drive the local economy by connecting users to great businesses. Our team, Ad Market Performance, provides data, analytics, and metrics that enable Yelp to better understand the performance of our advertising products and the quality of the connections we are creating. We track interactions with the product, and aggregate and transform large streams of data as those connections take place. We then serve data that supports and informs key product decisions. Some of our most important use-cases include: understanding the revenue impact of projects at Yelp, serving data as input to train critical machine learning models, and defining a source of truth for our financial data pipelines.

On our team, you will be responsible for the design and implementation of our data infrastructure. You will ensure that Millions of complex interactions are efficiently processed every day and help us meet high expectations for our systems’ availability and performance. And you will design datasets and APIs that empower engineers and decision makers throughout the organization.
