Software Engineer - Frontend (m/f/d) for USA based rating platform in Hamburg

Do you enjoy wrangling CSS and crafting beautiful JS? Want your work to be seen by millions of users? Our frontend engineers help build the experience that millions of users see every day. From making sure we've got fast and maintainable React applications to ensuring our sites are responsive, frontend engineers at Yelp do it all. We routinely tackle hard challenges and care deeply about creating the best user experience. We develop using a modern tech stack that we evolve with the web industry, currently consisting of React.js, GraphQL, Webpack, Jest, and css-in-js.

Frontend engineers at Yelp collaborate closely with product managers and designers along with backend and full stack engineers.

Yelp engineering culture is driven by our values: we're a cooperative team that values authenticity and encourages creative solutions to problems. We enable all new engineers to deploy working code within 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.

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.
