Software Engineer - iOS (Messaging Team)

Messaging is the next frontier in Yelp’s mission to connect everyone in the world with great local businesses. We’re building the experiences and infrastructure that enable users to get quotes from local contractors, request a haircut appointment next Tuesday, or book a birthday event for someone special. Yelpers love being able to contact several businesses at once straight from the app, and business owners are thrilled to hear from them. Yelp Messaging has seen explosive growth in the last twelve months, and we want you to help us tackle a few more orders of magnitude!

We are an agile team that creates an amazing experience for millions of Yelpers. We are passionate engineers, sure, but we are also fire spinners, roller girls, pilots, bakers, cartwheelers, and makers (of burrito bombers and 3D-printed trophies). Join our world-class team and be one of the personalities that make the Yelp culture awesome.

What You Will Do:

  • Build an amazing business-to-consumer messaging experience.
  • Insist on a consistent and responsive user experience for every one of our users.
  • Mentor other engineers who are learning to wrangle iOS.
  • Continue to learn, grow, and help us tackle brand new challenges.
  • Be a key part of the larger iOS developer community at Yelp.
  • Work closely with teams at Yelp’s San Francisco headquarters.

We Are Looking For:

  • Mastery of the iOS platform in both Swift and Objective-C.
  • Strong experience with test-driven development.
  • Eagerness to embrace scalability, reliability, and performance challenges.
  • Familiarity with client/server and API tech stacks.
  • Pointers to past mobile applications you’ve built.
  • If possible, demonstrable contribution to F/OSS projects.
