Job Details


Yelp engineering culture is driven by our values: we’re a cooperative team that values individual authenticity and encourages creative solutions to problems. All new engineers deploy working code their first week, and we strive to broaden individual impact with support from managers, mentors, and teams. At the end of the day, we’re all about helping our users, growing as engineers, and having fun in a collaborative environment.


Are you ready to elevate your leadership career? We're seeking an Engineering Manager with expertise in Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS).


The People Technology team builds, configures, and implements all people systems used by Yelp to manage its global workforce. As the leader of this team, you will be responsible for managing a portfolio of technology that supports People Operations and any department that supports Yelp employees. You will partner with business leaders, cross-functional managers, executive leadership, and employees across Yelp to strategize and implement technology, workflows, and business processes. You will lead a team of individual contributors to meet project objectives and integration deployments, manage individual growth planning, and be able to work in a people centric environment.


This opportunity is fully remote and does not require you to be located in any particular area in Canada. We welcome applicants from throughout Canada. We’d love to have you apply, even if you don’t feel you meet every single requirement in this posting. At Yelp, we’re looking for great people, not just those who simply check off all the boxes.

What you'll do::
  • Foster and build a fun, diverse, and inclusive culture that reflects Yelp’s values.
  • Own the long-term strategic roadmap for People Technology to support needs across the employee life cycle.
  • Manage a team responsible for the development and implementation of new solutions.
  • Mentor your reporting team, helping them grow as leaders while enabling them to foster strong relationships with their stakeholders to maximize the potential of our people systems.
  • Cultivate the talent within your group, empowering systems engineers to have a broad impact across the engineering organization.
  • Support the relationship with the human resources teams to be a strategic partnership, becoming an integral part of the success of the People Operations team and their mission.
  • Collaborate with all Yelp employee-focused teams to prioritize and implement scalable, automated technological solutions.


What it takes to succeed::
  • Previous experience as a manager with a “people-first” approach; maintaining a healthy team culture is your priority, and you lead through empathy.
  • A technical background that allows you to guide your team through evaluating trade-offs during design and development.
  • Ideally 3 years of People Management experience
  • Ideally several years experience with a cloud-based People Technology solution
  • Ideally several years experience, at any level, in all phases of system implementation (requirements, design, build, launch, testing) in a fast-moving environment.
  • Subject matter expertise and systems background in Human Resources.
  • Working knowledge in XSLT, JSON, Javascript and BIRT
What you'll get::
  • Compensation range is $165,000 - $280,000 CAD annually. You may also be offered a bonus, restricted stock units, and benefits.
  • This opportunity has the option to be fully remote in all locations across Canada.
  • You can find more information about Yelp's five star benefits here!
