Entry-Level Software Engineer - iOS (Biz Core Team)

Yelp, Hamburg, Germany

Connecting people with great local businesses

At Yelp, the Biz Core team empowers developers to quickly get high-quality features into the hands of our users. To make this happen, we build components shared across teams, maintain infrastructure for testing and releases, and promote best practices across Yelp's developer community. Engineers on Biz Core make changes that impact entire apps and teams in offices across the world.

We are an agile team that helps to create an amazing experience for millions of Yelpers. For us, solving a problem includes working with our peers to design a solution they want to use and finding a way to roll it out in constantly-updated apps with millions of users. If you’re passionate about maintaining a top-tier development ecosystem, you’ll fit right in.

  • Eagerness to embrace scalability, reliability, and performance challenges
  • Familiarity with client/server and API tech stacks
