Talk: Make Life Better for Services Business Owners

Yelp iswell known for its restaurant reviews, waitlist and reservations. However, in recent years, we’ve also built a wide range of features in the local services domain, aiming to make our business owners successful by helping them connect with consumers. Sui Ting will highlight some features we built and evolved for business owners over recent years. We will also discuss the overall design and some specific technologies Yelp employs to make building such features both straightforward and fun!

About Yelping From Home:
Yelp’s mission is to connect people with great local businesses, and two of the teams working behind the scenes to make that happen are our five star engineering and product teams.
Playing an active role in our community is a value that we have strongly prioritized over the years. Typically we would invite you to come to Yelp’s HQ to network, grab a slice of ‘za, and learn about the technology and culture behind Yelp. With stay-at-home orders across the globe, Yelp (like many of you) has had no choice butto adapt to these changes. We understand that this is a strange and challenging time for many, so we’d like to invite you to join us as we navigate this new normal for the tech community together.
To stay connected, create space for folks to collaborate and share some of the things Yelp has been working on, we are launching our very own virtual tech talk series. This series of talks will feature Yelp employees from engineering and product share their stories about career development, technical skills and workplace challenges in a well-distributed environment.
