Software Engineer - Full Stack

Yelp, San Francisco, CA

Connecting people with great local businesses

Our full stack engineers bridge the gap between backend data and the frontend websites of Yelp. Their goal is to provide the best user experience to millions of users and they’re excited to dive into any area of the web stack to make it happen.

Full stack engineers rarely have a typical day: One day they might be writing HTML/CSS/JavaScript and another they might be discussing the best approach making our web apps work in our service oriented architecture.

We Are Looking For:

  • Deep understanding of at least one popular server side MVC Framework (Django, Twisted, Rails, Pyramid, Codeigniter, Play, etc).
  • Expertise in JavaScript, HTML and CSS/Sass.
  • Comfortable working in a Unix Environment.
  • Experience with both backend and frontend performance analysis.
  • Understanding of web security best practice.
  • If you don't have at least one year of experience in a similar role, please take a look at our College Engineering roles instead!


  • Experience with TDD and code review.
  • Active contributor to open source software.
  • Experience with Google Closure Tools.
  • Experience with both mobile and desktop web application development.
  • Experience with Selenium Webdriver.
  • Experience with popular Python libraries/tools (sqlalchemy, pylint, tox, PyPI).
Pursuant to the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance, we will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records.
