Software Engineer - Operations Intern - Summer Yelp
Do you have strongly held opinions on the ?right? Linux distro? Perhaps you wish your dorm room had more space for your server farm? Maybe you want to build a website empire to achieve global domination but don?t know where to start?
Come work for us and see how it?s done in the real world.
We?re looking for summer interns for our Operations team. Operations builds the systems that run Yelp: networks, databases, monitoring, configuration, provisioning...all the way down to servers (both metal and cloud). If you want to spend some time learning how to engineer systems to support 120M+ monthly users, this is the place for you. As a Yelp Operations Intern, you can work on a little of everything or find something you?re passionate about and dive deep, all while enjoying the beautiful city of San Francisco.
