Graphic Designer

Yelp Chicago, IL

The Yelp Creative Team is a growing  group of designers, writers, and thinkers with big ideas. Impromptu brainstorm sessions, trips to a coffee bar, or afternoon breaks at a local museum to get our ideas flowing.

Prior experience in a role that is data driven to help the team hit revenue and customer goals while adhering to strategy is critical. Additionally, this designer should have experience and proven success working in a satellite office.
