Job Requirements

PMs at Yelp do a lot. In an "average" day you might be immersed in UI designs in Adobe Fireworks, QAing new features, spec-ing out ideas, and always, always using the site to think of ways we can improve it. We need a Product Manager who can design beautiful-but-simple features, crank out mockups and iterate on them quickly and think creatively about how to make yelp.com a more useful and fun place to be. As a Product Manager for the Consumer team, you'll work with incredible teams of engineers from Search to Mobile.

You will
  • Design intuitive, elegant consumer products that will be used by over 100 million unique visitors
  • Work with our all-star engineering teams to hone and iterate on your ideas
  • Identify, analyze and prioritize new site features
  • Manage the design/build/test/release process end-to-end.
  • Strive for design perfection but love to release and iterate

Requirements (and we mean it!)

  • Techie Cred: CS or similar degree so you can talk to our enginerds about Python, map reduce jobs, and naive Bayesian algorithms without a translator.
  • Design Chops: While Yelp PMs hold technical degrees, we're also passionate about design and have either schooling or significant experience building beautiful sites or apps. You should, too. Experience designing for mobile is a huge plus.
  • Passion about the Space: You love the world of social networking, local search and consumer websites.
  • Non-Nerd Empathy: You're interested in Hacker News, Twitter, etc. as much as the next nerd, but you also recognize that you're designing for a non-techie audience.
  • A Conditional Love for Yelp: Like a BFF or a tee ball coach, you should love us but also be able to tell us what we're doing wrong. You'll need to be able to dish out the criticism here and take it, too.
  • A Need for Speed: Daily release cycle? Bring it!
