Wouldn’t you love to lead a team here?! Well, you’re in luck! Yelp is looking for a Product Manager to lead the creation of mission critical applications.

+ Work with our all-star engineering team to hone and iterate on your ideas 
+ Identify, analyze and prioritize new features 
+ Manage the design/build/test/release process end-to-end. 
+ Strive for design perfection but love to release and iterate 
Requirements (and we mean it!): 
+ Techie Cred: CS or similar degree so you can talk to our enginerds about Python, map reduce jobs, and naive Bayesian algorithms without a translator. 
+ Problem Solver: Love to figure out complex problems and constantly think about how to make processes more efficient 
+ Design Chops: While Yelp PMs hold technical degrees, we’re also passionate about design and have either schooling or significant experience building beautiful sites or apps. You should, too. 
+ Passion about the Space: You love the world of social networking, local search, and consumer websites. 
+ Non-Nerd Empathy: You’re interested in FriendFeed, Twitter, etc. as much as the next nerd, but you also recognize that you’re designing for a non-techie audience. 
+ A Conditional Love for Yelp: Like a BFF or a tee ball coach, you should love us but also be able to tell us what we’re doing wrong. You’ll need to be able to dish out the criticism here and take it, too.
+ A Need for Speed: Daily release cycle? Bring it!
