We’re in the process of transforming design at Yelp and searching for a Lead Product Designer ready to take the next step in their career. You’ll have ownership of the design of the product you’re working on, and will collaborate with product managers, engineers, writers, researchers, and other designers to make quick decisions in a highly collaborative environment. 

Yelp is the best source of knowledge about local businesses. At Yelp, you'll have the opportunity to have a real impact on a product that hundreds of millions of consumers trust to discover and engage with businesses in their community!

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.

  • Take an active interest in developing the careers of others through coaching and mentorship.
  • Champion changes that enable strong growth and execution of Yelp Product Design.

What it Takes to Succeed:

  • Ideally 7+ years experience in using design practices and skills that result in high quality work.
  • Know how to thoughtfully design complex products for scale working with an evolving design system. 
  • Are a strong communicator, clearly articulating project information to cross-functional stakeholders across multiple teams.
