Job Description

At Yelp, it’s our mission to connect people with great local businesses. From a coffee connoisseur’s review of a neighborhood cafe, to a homeowner’s request for a quote to remodel their kitchen, Yelp’s data captures millions of user- business interactions every day.

The Data Science & Analytics team prides itself on harnessing the power of this data. We test and learn, build tools and lead meaningful analyses to extract insights that influence Yelp’s product and business strategy.

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

We’d love to have you apply, even if you don't feel you meet every single requirement in this posting. At Yelp, we’re looking for great people, not just those who simply check off all the boxes.


Where You Come In:

  • Lead broad analytics projects core to Yelp’s business, communicate key insights to decision makers, and help product leaders uncover new opportunities.

  • Manage tight deadlines and quickly iterate analyses to answer unstructured business questions, deliver actionable learnings, and make strategic recommendations.

  • Work cross-functionally with Product and Engineering to define, log, and track Yelp’s key product metrics and an opportunity to create new initiatives.

  • Generate dashboards and automate reports that empower teams across the organization to make data-driven decisions.

  • Grow and maintain impactful relationships with stakeholders of both technical and non-technical backgrounds with clear and frequent communication.

  • Support consumer experimentation from initial design to synthesizing learnings from experimental results.

What It Takes to Succeed:

  • Critical thinker, team player, and excellent communicator who takes pride in telling stories with data.

  • A knack for communicating quantitative results to a broad audience through writing and compelling data visualization.

  • BA/BS or graduate degree in a quantitative field (mathematics, statistics, economics, computer science, etc.).

  • Several years of quantitative industry experience, ideally within the consumer product space.

  • Excellent SQL skills, fluency in Python, and experience with at least one statistical package (R, Pandas/NumPy/SciPy/statsmodels).

  • Extensive experience with at least one data visualization tool (Tableau, Power BI, Mode, Looker).

  • Solid understanding of statistical inference and experimental design.

  • Familiarity with financial modeling and advanced statistics (regression, non parametrics, predictive modeling).

What You'll Get:

  • Full responsibility for projects from day one, a collaborative team, and a dynamic work environment.

  • Competitive salary, a pension scheme, and an optional employee stock purchase plan.

  • 25 days paid holiday (rising to 29 with service), plus one floating holiday.

  • £150 monthly reimbursement to help cover remote working expenses.

  • £75 caregiver reimbursement to support dependent care for families.

  • Private health insurance, including dental and vision.

  • Flexible working hours and meeting-free Wednesdays.

  • Regular 3-day Hackathons, bi-weekly learning groups, and productivity spending to support and encourage your career growth.

  • Opportunities to participate in digital events and conferences.

  • Public transportation season ticket loan.

  • £56 per month to use toward qualifying wellness expenses.

  • Central location, a fully stocked kitchen, adjustable sitting/standing desks, quarterly offsites, locally roasted coffee, happy hours, and more!
