Product Designer

Yelp, Hamburg, Germany

Connecting people with great local businesses

We're looking for an experienced designer that can craft world-class user experiences that solve real problems in an elegant way. Our national business products team delivers designs for consumer and business-facing features in one of Yelp’s fastest-growing segments. Although the majority of Yelp’s paying advertisers are small local businesses, thousands of national and multi-location businesses are highly engaged on Yelp, and our business is growing quickly.

The culture at Yelp is a rare environment combining the best parts of being at a startup with the stability and resources of a successful public company. You’ll have full ownership of the design of the product you’re working on, and will collaborate with product managers, engineers, and other designers to make quick decisions in a highly collaborative, no-BS, no-bureaucracy environment. Our office is based in central Hamburg, within walking distance of Jungfernstieg and the Alster. Join us and be one of the personalities that makes Yelp culture great.

What You Will Do:

  • Develop new product ideas to meet challenges and accomplish ambitious goals
  • Champion great user experiences across a variety of platforms
  • Ensure the visual design output of the team is exceptional
  • Build and evolve the design system that defines our products
  • Collaborate closely with product managers and engineers
  • Work with a wide range of people in a fun, collaborative environment

What We Are Looking For:

  • Solid portfolio: a history of launching top-notch web and mobile interfaces
  • Can-do attitude: will commit to launching the best possible design
  • Passion for solving user and design problems, not just creating beautiful visuals
  • Experience designing coherent experiences across platforms (web, mobile)
  • This isn't a coding role, but we'd expect a familiarity with HTML, CSS, AJAX, jQuery, etc.
Please also send any examples of your design accomplishments and why you want to join the Yelp Team.
