Yelp’s products are used by millions of people every day. At Yelp you’ll have an opportunity to make a real impact on a product you actually use. The team you’ll work with is small, scrappy, nimble, and fun. The culture at Yelp is a unique 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 product you’re working on and will be able to make fast decisions in a highly collaborative environment.
We’re looking for a seasoned product manager to help us build great advertising products for Yelp’s mid-market and enterprise customers. If you’re looking to own critical revenue-generating products at a fast-growing consumer company, this role is for you. The online advertising market is in the hundreds of billions, and Yelp’s share is $1B a year and growing fast. Although many of Yelp’s paying advertisers are small local businesses, thousands of regional and national businesses are highly engaged on Yelp, and our enterprise business is growing quickly.
We’d love to have you apply, even if you don't feel you meet every single requirement in this posting. At Yelp, we’re looking for great people, not just those who simply check off all the boxes.
Where You Come In:
Identify, analyze, and prioritize products and solutions that enable mid-market and enterprise businesses to engage with their customers and grow.
Collaborate with our design, analytics, and engineering teams, and work with stakeholders and clients to understand their motivations and needs.
Work with our all-star engineering team to implement and roll out new features that drive revenue in our enterprise business.
Manage the cycle of define / build / release / measure end-to-end.
Define roadmaps, prioritize features and evangelize product launches to executives, product managers, sales, business development, and other stakeholders at Yelp.
Support Product development team based in Hamburg by liaising with stakeholders based in US and gathering market feedback from US-based clients.
Move quickly. We strive for perfection but love to release and iterate.
What It Takes To Succeed:
Several years of experience as a product manager or product owner, including responsibility for major company initiatives.
Experience in consumer or enterprise software development, with extra points for both.
Strong business acumen with a track record of building business cases for revenue generating solutions.

Product planning extraordinaire: you plan and execute your roadmap with precision.
All-around leader: you can create a product vision that others want to follow.
At Yelp, we believe that diversity is an expression of all the unique characteristics that make us human: race, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, and education — and those are just a few. We recognize that diverse backgrounds and perspectives strengthen our teams and our product. The foundation of our diversity efforts are closely tied to our core values, which include “Playing Well With Others” and “Authenticity.”
We’re proud to be an equal opportunity employer and consider qualified applicants without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, age, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital or family status, veteran status, medical condition or disability.
