Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Yelp connects millions of people with great local businesses every day, and local businesses know it. About 200+ businesses subscribe to Yelp’s advertising products today, and those happy customers account for nearly all of our revenue. However, local business advertising is still a rapidly growing market, and there are millions of business owners who’ve claimed their Yelp profile and aren’t customers yet. That’s where you come in.

We’re looking for an experienced Technical Program Manager to support and develop our Data Infrastructure organization. Our Data Infrastructure ecosystem powers critical machine learning, real-time notifications, sales and marketing engineering, experimentation and data warehousing use cases across Yelp. You will partner with engineering managers, product managers, and data science leaders to help deliver Yelp’s next generation data infrastructure ecosystem. The Data Infrastructure group is located across London and North America; the group looks after our entire streaming infrastructure (Apache Kafka and Apache Flink) as well as our databases (MySQL and Cassandra) and data warehouse (Redshift) - You can read more about our infrastructure in our engineering blog.

Yelp engineering culture is driven by our values: we’re a cooperative team that values individual authenticity and encourages creative solutions to problems. You’ll have an opportunity to be hands-on in your first week, and your impact will only grow from there with the support of your manager, mentor, and team. At the end of the day, we’re all about helping our users, growing as engineers, and having fun in a collaborative environment.

Interested in becoming the TPM for our Data Infrastructure team? If yes, please send us your application!
