Software Engineer - Mobile iOS

No app is better suited for mobile than Yelp. When amazing local content meets location-aware devices that go everywhere with us, Yelp connects you with that great local business right around the corner and lets you instantly share the experience to help the next person discover it, too. It’s no wonder there are 25 million users of our apps each month who contribute the majority of Yelp’s reviews and photos.

Yelp has a history of being on the cutting edge of iOS: Yelp launched with the App Store on the very first iPhone, and we had apps ready at the launch of the iPad and Apple Watch. Ever wondered why Yelp was integrated into Apple Maps? Come see first hand the care and innovative design we strive for to keep our app fresh as the mobile space evolves.

We are an agile team that helps to create 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 new features in the Yelp app to connect people with great local businesses.
  • Improve and iterate on existing functionality to reliably give our users a smooth experience.
  • Insist on a consistent and responsive user experience for every one of our users.
  • Mentor other engineers and share the best practices you’ve learned.
  • Continue to learn, grow, and help us tackle brand new challenges.
  • Be a key part of the larger iOS developer community at Yelp.

We Are Looking For:

  • Mastery of the iOS platform (Objective-C or Swift, preferably both).
  • Strong experience with iOS testing, from breaking controller logic into unit-testable pieces to automated UI testing.
  • 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.
  • If you don't have at least one year of experience in a similar role, please take a look at our College Engineering roles instead!

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