What do a user searching for their favorite brunch spot, an entrepreneur looking to grow their business, and a homeowner trying to find a dependable contractor have in common? Yelp, of course! Spread across 32 countries and listed as one of the top internet properties in the US, Yelp is on a mission to help people connect with great local businesses one review at a time.  
Our infrastructure teams design, build, and operate large-scale distributed systems that power all of Yelp’s platforms and features. We love to scale complex systems while maintaining high reliability, get a thrill out of making our infrastructure elastic, and care about providing an exceptional developer experience for engineers across the company. As an infrastructure engineer manager, you’ll enjoy leading and inspiring a team of skilled engineers to develop the next generation of our data and production infrastructure to support Yelp’s ever-growing scale.

Where You Come In:
  • You will help the team stay happy and productive by removing obstacles and optimizing team processes

  • You will monitor availability and performance of distributed systems like NoSQL Datastores
  • You will scale infrastructure to meet demand while keeping an eye on cost efficiency
  • You will be willing to roll up your sleeves and debug/tune/code/fix alongside your team
  • You will drive (and teach) technical incident response

What it Takes to Succeed:
  • You have previous experience as a technical lead or manager, with the empathy and communication skills to match
  • You take a “people first” approach and a deep care for healthy team culture
  • You have experience with building, configuration, scaling, and monitoring distributed systems like datastores (e.g., Cassandra), messaging systems (e.g., Kafka), or resource management systems (e.g., Mesos)
  • You have an understanding of how to achieve high availability, fault tolerance, performance, and disaster recovery
  • You have experience using cloud computing services (AWS, Microsoft Azure, etc.)
  • You have a mastery of Linux or Unix
  • You can command your favorite modern programming language: Python, Ruby, Java, C++, etc.
  • You have experience with configuration management: Puppet/Chef/Ansible/Salt

What You'll Get:
  • Full responsibility for projects from day one, an awesome team, and a dynamic work environment
  • Competitive salary with equity in the company, a pension scheme, and an optional employee stock purchase program
  • 25 days paid holiday initially, rising to 29 with service
  • Private health insurance, including dental and vision
  • Flexible working hours and meeting-free Wednesdays
  • Regular 3-day Hackathons and weekly learning groups, always with interesting topics
  • Opportunities to participate in events and conferences throughout Europe and the US
  • Public transportation season ticket loan and £50 per month toward any exercise of your choice
