Data Scientist (m/f/d) (Remote)

Yelp, Frankfurt, Hessen, Germany

Connecting people with great local businesses

Duration: Full-Time

At Yelp, it’s our mission to connect people with great local businesses. Yelp’s unique dataset contains billions of interactions between users and businesses around the globe, from a review of a coffee shop to requesting a repair quote with a photo of a leaky faucet. Data Scientists at Yelp work to make sense of these interactions to deliver impactful analyses and products to our users, business partners and the general public.

The Data Science & Analytics team performs analyses, builds models, and designs experiments that directly impact Yelp’s products and users. We are adept at tasks like modeling user preferences, inference from user and marketplace experiments, and generating insights about the health of local economies. With diverse backgrounds and expertise, we strive for learning and growth in a collaborative environment. 

This opportunity has the option to be fully remote throughout Germany.
