All work and no play would make life quite dull. The trick is finding juuust the right balance of the two. With Yelp’s new office in New York City, that was our goal.
With large floor plans of our building taking up an entire city block, open space allows employees and departments to co-mingle and communicate, and each quadrant is designed to highlight different local New York City neighborhoods like Astoria, Williamsburg, and West Village, to name a few. Yelp is all about local, so we wanted our office to reflect that passion and be a tool to connect our team members with the local communities they’re a part of. Also, it just looks super cool.
More than 500 employees are based in Yelp’s NYC digs, enjoying benefits like free snacks, an in-office swing for coffee breaks or meetings with a great view overlooking the city, a full-service coffee barista for employees to enjoy lattes and more, an official Yelp Sales Development Program training room, beer taps with rotating local brews for after work drinks, a group meeting space designed in the image of the High Line with astroturf and sleek benches, game tables, a Lite-Brite wall, and a huge kitchen area for everyone to gather and hang out. Phew!
Check out some pics of our space, and if you are envisioning yourself sipping a latte while answering emails from a Yelp High Line bench, there are plenty of job openings to go around. Apply at yelp.com/careers and join our team!
