Yelp is looking for an experienced software engineer to guide our engineering teams toward a reliable and efficient future.

The Production Observability team collaborates with groups all across Yelp Engineering to improve visibility into the health of high-risk services and infrastructure, with the goal of reducing the amount of time it takes to diagnose a critical issue. We do this by collecting metrics and building tooling and visualizations that make it easy for all teams to understand how their systems behave in production.

Yelp engineering culture is driven by our values: we're a cooperative team that values individual authenticity, and encourages "unboring" solutions to problems. New hires are expected to 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 are all about helping our users, growing as engineers, and having fun in a collaborative environment.

What You Will Do:

  • Design, build and deploy software systems that run 24/7 at scale.
  • Drive devops best practices by coordinating across many teams and teaching other engineers how to investigate problems.
  • Build tooling to identify hot spots and regressions across the infrastructure that put Yelp products at risk.
  • Dive deep into our large service-oriented architecture to make it transparent, measurable and tunable.
  • Optimize our workflows and products systematically through automation.

We Are Looking For:

  • An experienced software engineer, with an interest in metrics and devops.
  • Familiarity with performance analysis tools. (e.g. tracers, profilers, debuggers, visualization tools)Fluency in Python, C, C++, Java, or a similar language.
  • At least one year of full-time working experience (besides internships).
