Software Engineer - Full Stack

Our full stack engineers bridge the gap between backend data and the frontend websites of Yelp. Our goal is to provide the best user experience to millions of users and we’re excited to dive into any area of the web stack to make it happen.

Full stack engineers rarely have a typical day: One day you might be writing HTML/CSS/JavaScript and another you might be discussing the best approach making our web apps work in our service oriented architecture.

Yelp engineering culture is driven by our values: we’re a cooperative team that values individual authenticity, and encourages “unboring” solutions to problems. New hires are expected to deploy working code their first week, and your impact will only grow from there with the support of your manager, mentor and team. At the end of the day, we are all about helping our users, growing as engineers, and having fun in a collaborative environment.

We Are Looking For:

  • Deep understanding of at least one popular server side web framework (Django, Flask, Rails, Pyramid, Laravel, Express, etc.) or modern JS frontend framework (React, Angular, Ember, etc.)
  • Full-Stack engineering experience in Python, Ruby, JavaScript, Java, or C++
  • Understanding of web security and performance best practices
  • Comfortable working in a Unix Environment
  • If you don't have at least one year of experience in a similar role, please apply to our College Engineering role instead!

Pluses:

  • Experience with React
  • Experience with popular Python libraries/tools (Pyramid, pytest, tox, SQLAlchemy)

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