Yelp, San Francisco, CA

Connecting people with great local businesses

Ready to redefine your summer with an internship at Yelp? Yelp's software engineers do everything from redesigning our homepage to building the latest distributed messaging infrastructure, and we're growing our team! We are hiring students pursuing a Bachelor's, Master's or Doctorate degree. We are an agile team that creates an amazing experience for millions of people and business owners. We are passionate engineers, sure, but we are also fire spinners, roller girls, pilots, bakers, cartwheelers, and makers (of burrito bombers and 3D-printed trophies). Join our world-class team and be one of the personalities that make the Yelp culture awesome.

Yelp Security works to keeps our users, employees, and their data safe. The systems we build prevent and detect security vulnerabilities across Yelp’s infrastructure - from our production infrastructure, to mobile apps, to our corporate systems. The Security team partners with all other engineering teams to develop new features in a safe and secure way.

Where You Come In:

  • You will build systems that monitor, detect, and alert on anomalies and bad behavior on Yelp’s production and corporate systems
  • You will partner with all other engineering and product teams to help develop new features securely while protecting our users’ privacy and data.

What It Takes to Succeed:

  • You are enthusiastic about finding exploits and vulnerabilities in any internet-connected system
  • You have expertise in your favorite modern programming language: Python, Ruby, Java, Objective-C, or C++.
