Are you a skilled dealmaker who loves to negotiate and derives a deep sense of joy from closing a deal?
Yelp is in search of an experienced professional to join the ranks of its Technology Sourcing team. In this role, you will be an integral part of the team that manages all third party partnerships and contract negotiations for Yelp’s software and hardware tools. This is a unique opportunity to work with virtually every team across the enterprise and to have a direct impact on the company’s trajectory. Your focus will be to support the adoption of technology for both corporate tools and systems as well as production environments and partnerships that bring our product to customers and consumers alike.
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:
Lead full cycle technology sourcing projects including strategy, identifying the right potential partners, outreach, competitive bidding, pricing & contract negotiation, and contract approval.
Build sound relationships with external vendor partners and internal business collaborators.
Handle multiple projects simultaneously — from quick contract renewals to in-depth new strategic partnerships.
Organize a large database of partnerships, be data-driven, and provide clear reporting back to management on the status of renewals or other important contract terms.
Analyze spend and other data to solve problems, monitor purchasing activity, and conduct benchmarking.
Ensure that all contracts are executed & cataloged, and that approved payments reflect contractual terms.
What it takes to succeed:
Solid understanding of Technology Sourcing (software, hardware, telco, or datacenter).
Ability to credibly maneuver a wide range of projects spanning the business that are often highly technical in nature.
Analytical experience grounded in solid business/finance fundamentals.
Outstanding communication skills in all forms — written, presentation and negotiation.
Ability to collaborate effectively with C-suite & senior executives as well as seasoned supplier partners.
Enthusiasm to embrace diverse & dispersed teams across the company on a daily basis.
B.S. degree or equivalent experience.
Preferably 4 years (or more) of technology sourcing related work experience.
What you'll get:
Compensation range is $97,000-103,000 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.
