Software Engineer - Winter Intern - Infrastructure

Yelp, San Francisco, CA

Connecting people with great local businesses


Ready to make the most of your winter with an internship at Yelp? Want to help Yelp create more amazing experiences? 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.

Our infrastructure teams design, implement, and maintain scalable software architectures that are at the heart of our technology. We do everything from building performance monitoring tools, to developing libraries, to creating speedy and reliable infrastructure that’s easy to use for our relevance/machine learning developers.

Where You Come In:

  • You will support and improve our tools for continuous build, automated testing, source control, and release management
  • You will design, build, and deploy software systems that run 24/7 at increasing scale
  • You will be expected to analyze metrics and code to discover performance regressions and opportunities for optimization, then work with teams across the organization to speed things up.

What it Takes to Succeed:

  • You have a solid foundation in data structures, algorithms and complexity analysis
  • You are hungry for tracking down root causes -- no matter how deep it takes you -- and fixing them in systematic ways
  • You have a strong understanding of operating systems, file systems and networking
  • You have a strong understanding of web technology
  • You have expertise in your favorite modern programming language: Python, Ruby, Java, Objective-C, or C++
