About Yelp Intern Program

Yelp interns work side-by-side with our passionate, creative software developers. That's right, each intern at Yelp has a mentor and substantial projects to work on during their time here.We are looking for students who wish to gain experience working on real, impactful projects for our site that currently sees 102 monthly unique users. One caveat, though, we would need those projects pushed to immediately as we use continuous deployment.

Something we take a lot of pride in is our space. We love hosting meetup groups and tech talks in our SF office. Yelp is looking for interns that want the chance to meet and greet with the best and most dynamic engineers in the Valley.

Check out our engineering teams and let us know what you are interested in working on. We would love to find out more about you.
