Data Science Manager - Marketplaces - Yelp

San Francisco, California

At Yelp, it’s our mission to connect people with great local businesses. Yelp’s unique dataset contains billions of interactions between users and local business around the globe, from a user reviewing a neighborhood coffee shop to requesting a repair quote with a photo of a leaky faucet. Data Scientists at Yelp work to make sense of these interactions to deliver impactful analyses and products to our users, business partners and the general public.

The Data Science group performs analyses, builds models, and designs experiments that directly impact Yelp’s business and users. Our teams sit in Yelp’s central product management organization and work directly with the product leaders to understand quantitatively how our products are performing and where the largest opportunities are. We are adept at tasks from modeling content growth and user behavior to sharing insights about the health of local economies. With varied backgrounds and expertise, we strive for learning and growth in a collaborative environment. We’re looking for a Manager of Data Science to lead the Marketplaces Data Science team at Yelp.

What You Will Do

  • Lead one of the three product focussed data science teams at Yelp
  • Drive product analytics for the Marketplaces product organization.
  • Work closely with the product leadership of our growing suite of marketplace products which directly connect users with local businesses: Food Delivery, Reservations and No Wait, Request A Quote and Yelp Wifi.
  • Guide data scientists to ask and answer deep questions in large datasets
  • Steer product and engineering leaders and executives towards the biggest opportunities, and enable them to measure success and learn from failure
  • Communicate your passion for data informed decisions broadly

Pursuant to the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance, we will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records.


We Are Looking For

  • An experienced analytical person who can synthesize deep product and business knowledge
  • Someone who has extensive statistical, analytical and technical expertise, but who is also an inspiring leader and communicator
  • BA/BS degree and 3+ years of industry experience in a quantitative role, or MS/PhD in a quantitative discipline (Statistics, Physics, Economics, etc) and 2+ years of industry experience in a quantitative role.
  • Demonstrated experience in a leadership capacity
  • Demonstrated capacity to directly impact product and business problems
  • Communication skills to work with partners on engineering, product and business teams.
