Engineering Manager - Ad Syndication (Remote)

Yelp, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Connecting people with great local businesses

As the manager of the Ad Syndication team, you will lead and grow a team of skilled backend engineers to build one of our newer, fast-growing ad product areas at Yelp. Ad Syndication products are a recent addition to Yelp’s ad product portfolio that enable our advertisers to leverage Yelp consumer intent signals on publisher websites across the Internet. In this role, you will collaborate with a cross-functional group of product managers, customer success managers, data scientists, and members of our executive team to balance shorter-term features and longer-term platform investments. 

If you’re looking to lead a team with an early stage product area, love to strategize for business success, and enjoy driving cross functional initiatives, then this role is for you! 

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.

We welcome applicants from throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, and Quebec.

Where You Come In:

  • Lead, coach and mentor a team of engineers of all experience levels and develop the overall ability of the team.
  • Partner closely with product managers, business analysts, data scientists, and members of Yelp’s executive team to create strategies that deliver revenue growth for Yelp.
  • Collaborate with the team to craft a technical vision and help get it there.
  • Help the team stay motivated and productive by removing obstacles and optimizing team processes.
  • Participate in the recruiting process to help grow our team, from scouting potential candidates to interviewing and helping close new hires.
  • Foster and build a fun, diverse, and inclusive culture that reflects Yelp’s values.

What It Takes To Succeed:

  • Passionate about growing early stage business products.
  • Previous experience as a manager with a “people-first” approach; maintaining an inclusive team culture is your priority, and you lead through empathy.
  • Ability to translate complex technical concepts into simple ideas depending on the audience.
  • Experience with building highly available, scalable, extendable, and maintainable backend systems.
  • Be comfortable with your favorite modern programming language: Python, Ruby, Java, Objective-C, Swift, C++, etc.
  • Experience in ad tech/programmatic domain areas is a plus.
