Software Engineer - Full Stack (Transaction Platform)

Yelp’s Transaction Platform allows users to interact directly with great local businesses to order pizza, book a tour, and schedule door-to-door dry cleaning. Long gone are the days when users were forced to get out of their pajamas to interact directly with their favorite local businesses.

Transaction Platform enables users to make orders through features present on the web and in our mobile applications. Since Yelp doesn’t have self-driving cars (yet), the Platform team works closely with third party partners to create slick user experiences.

We are a full stack team, with folks working on the website and mobile apps, as well as our backend services. As Transaction Platform has become a major focus for Yelp going forward, this is a great opportunity to work on exciting features and products which will shape the future of Yelp. Come join our team and help us better connect with our local businesses!

We Are Looking For:

  • Strong understanding of at least one popular server-side MVC framework.
  • Expertise in JavaScript, HTML and CSS/Sass.
  • Comfortable using an ORM and database.
  • Comfortable working in a Unix environment.
  • Experience with both backend and frontend performance analysis.
  • Understanding of web security best practices.
  • Passion for working across languages and frameworks.


  • Experience with TDD and code reviews.
  • Experience with Mobile applications.
  • Comfortable debugging a service and understanding logging.
  • Active contributor to open source software. 
  • Experience with popular Python libraries/tools (SQLAlchemy, Pylint, tox, PyPI).
  • Experience with Selenium WebDriver.

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