Product Leader, Data Monetization (Remote)

Yelp, Boston, MA

Connecting people with great local businesses

Yelp works with thousands of partners, from small startups to large, established players such as Apple, Amazon Alexa and Uber Eats to bring Yelp’s unique and trustworthy local data to their product offerings.
