Yelp was created to connect people with great local businesses. As an Inside Sales Representative (ISR), you'll be working directly with these local businesses to help them achieve their goals through Yelp’s various advertising programs. You'll work with small business owners via phone to determine their needs and aspirations and customize every sale to help make those happen. We succeed when we help our clients grow their businesses.

Because people are at the center of everything we do, one of your main priorities is to educate business owners about the value of Yelp's advertising platform. In this role, you will be directly responsible for selling advertising space on Yelp to local businesses across the US and Canada. Success in this role is measured by hitting and exceeding monthly sales goals, consistently staying ahead of daily metrics, and handling rejection in stride. You’ll experience all of this in a supportive virtual team environment with the added flexibility of a remote workspace.

Company reviews
"Great company!"
Current EmployeeAccount Executive
Love the company and the people the job itself, not so much. Management treats you really well, I love my peers. Cold calling all day to get constantly hung up on is no fun but that's what the job is.

"Room for growth"
Former EmployeeAccount Executive
It was a great learning experience. Great training program and once you get the courage to leave, you will succeed anywhere you go. Management is great and motivating however high volume dials.

Former EmployeeJunior Account Executive
Outbound advertiser sales. Is definitely a hustle, its an easy deal for some to close more than others. Being a yelp account executive is all about mindset!

"Very slow ramp up and fake sakes commission "
Current EmployeeInside Sales Representative
This position literally takes up your whole day until late evening. You will be working from early morning till late evening. Cold calling and harassing businesses about Yelp's free landing page and how EVERYBODY goes on Yelp to search for all types of businesses. They want you to have 80 outbound dials a day and its months and months calling the same businesses and same people before they change your territory. Commission structure is pretty rough. You must sale 5 packages to qualify for commission. So if you sold 3-4 packages you get zero commission. Culture and vibes was great working from home but its definitely a fake sales environment. You should get paid for every single sale regardless of base pay. 9 months to ramp up to company standards. Lots of sales and little payout. If the commission structure was different, it would've been a lot better. Very poor commission structure.
