We are looking for a seasoned product manager (Senior or Lead PM) to join the Applied Machine Learning Product team at Yelp. This team works horizontally with a broad set of stakeholders and has an ambitious charter to accelerate AI/ML-driven outcomes across the company. In this role, you will operate across a range of vertical problem spaces, deeply understand priorities for these areas, identify the right opportunities for the introduction of AI/ML, and drive product initiatives through the life cycle.

Given the cross-team nature of the role, you will drive outcomes through a combination of directly owned initiatives as well as collaborating / advising on active ML initiatives owned by other Product Managers. You will also have the opportunity to lead adoption of critical ML applications and technologies across the company (eg. large language models, user personalization, intent understanding), and consequently have deep impact on the consumer and business owner experience.

A successful PM in this role is able to be strategic and clear-headed about what investments to make. You can seamlessly wear multiple hats, handle a range of contexts & problem spaces, build trust with stakeholders, and drive initiatives forward in a matrixed org structure. You are also comfortable working on 0-1 problem spaces and enjoy the process of turning ambiguous opportunities into well-defined product investments.

Past experience working on ML applications is required. That said, we are looking for candidates who are strong generalist PMs, technical, and are able to comfortably operate across a variety of problem spaces.

This opportunity is fully remote and does not require you to be located in any particular state within the US. We welcome applicants from throughout the US. 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.


What you’ll do:

  • Understand problems being solved by a range of stakeholders within the company and identify where ML can help accelerate outcomes
  • Drive product outcomes through a combination of direct initiative, ownership, influencing and advising on the roadmap of other product teams
  • Own a horizontal ML problem space (eg. personalization), scope opportunity and identify ML capability to build; ensure adoption of these capabilities across multiple vertical teams
  • Collaborate with other ML PMs on the team and shape the roadmap for their areas in alignment with your charter


What it takes to succeed:

  • A Bachelor’s Degree or an equivalent work experience is required
  • Past experience with building ML applications
  • Comfortable with navigating ambiguity well, able to operate as a strong generalist across multiple problem spaces, and excited to turn ambiguous opportunities into product investments
  • Thrives and excels at building trust with a wide set of product partners
  • Strong foundational product skills across product sense, execution, design / problem finding, analytics, and can overlay that with your understanding of ML to drive product outcomes
  • Solid 3+ years of product management experience


What you’ll get:

  • Compensation range is $120,000-260,000 annually. You may also be offered restricted stock units and benefits.
  • This opportunity has the option to be fully remote in all locations across the US.
