Connecting people with great local businesses

Duration: Full-Time

Are you interested in building productivity tools to enable the backend Python community at Yelp to develop quickly and reliably? The Core Services team creates tools, libraries, and best practices to help service Yelp’s engineers to write high quality, performant, maintainable code in Python. 

We’re looking for an experienced engineer to facilitate the development and testing of Python services, libraries, and system packages. You’ll help build the infrastructure that enriches and streamlines the Python developer experience while maintaining standards and Python libraries for communication between services. 
Yelp engineering culture is driven by our values: we’re a cooperative team that values individual authenticity, and encourages creative solutions to problems. All new engineers deploy working code their first week, and your impact will only grow from there with the support of your manager, mentor, and team. At the end of the day, we’re all about helping our users, growing as engineers, and having fun in a collaborative environment.

This opportunity requires you to be located in the United Kingdom.
