We’re looking for a savvy and tenacious engineering manager to join our Biz Traffic team. Our team's mission is to bring every eligible local business to Yelp. You will partner with engineering managers, program managers, product managers, and data science professionals to bring Yelp to more business owners.

This opportunity requires you to be located in the United Kingdom.
