Senior Auditor, Technology

San Francisco, CA 94102
  • Job Code

Our internal audit team (or "YAR" as we call it, for Yelp Assessment of Risk) is looking for a Senior Risk Analyst, Technology to support our team's SOX Compliance initiatives and other internal audit projects. The position will report to the Internal Audit Manager and will be based in our San Francisco headquarters.

Yelp is in that sweet Goldilocks spot of being a company thats not too big or too small. Here you will have your voice and recommendations heard and get the chance to contribute to implementing things that will impact the business down the road and lay the foundation for years to come. We're looking for an individual who brings enthusiasm and curiosity into their role. Its a culture where auditors are not looked upon as scary - people here will be receptive to your ideas! If you are interested in moving the bar instead of the bar moving you, then we'd like to speak with you.

A bit about us:
The YAR team was founded in 2014, and has grown and evolved to be a leader in the audit & compliance space in Silicon Valley. You will be surrounded by teammates who are committed to helping each other grow as we provide a unique platform to attract and develop talented professionals. We have created a highly rated and high-performing center of excellence within Yelp. We're serious about training and career development plans to match the company, department and individual goals. Beyond compliance work, there will be new and exciting projects along the way.

Our team works hard, but also has diverse interests outside of work too. We're musicians, volunteers with non-profit organizations, motorcycle riders, and world travellers -- we embrace the Yelp value of "Be Unboring!"

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Participate in the execution of SOX compliance activities including understanding business processes and underlying systems, conducting and participating in walkthroughs, and performing tests of design and operational effectiveness for key information technology controls including but not limited to ITGC, Application Automated Controls, Key Reports, SOC Reports, and other ad-hoc IT testing.
  • Building effective working relationships and trust with our business and engineering partners across the organization.
  • Develop a detailed understanding of Yelp's systems, identifying both control gaps and opportunities to streamline processes and controls.
  • Creating and modifying test plans to ensure identified control attributes are being examined appropriately.
  • Document accurate and detailed workpapers clearly describing the tests, the result of work performed, and conclusions reached.
  • Evaluate control deficiencies, including collaborating with control owners on root cause identification, mitigating controls, impact analysis, and remediation action plans.
  • Proactively follow-up, track, and close out all identified audit findings.
  • Participate in readiness reviews for emerging risks.
  • Identify opportunities to enhance the SOX program to improve efficiency and increase the value we provide to Yelp.
  • Help to educate the company on the role of YAR and the value we bring.
  • Support projects within the overall Audit Plan that have a data related focus (e.g., data governance, cyber dashboards, breach simulations, etc)

Ideal candidates will possess the following:

  • 3-5+ years in an auditing and/or finance role (preferably at Big 4 and/or the technology industry).
  • BA/BS degree in Accounting, Finance, or Business Administration.
  • CPA, CISA, CIA or an appropriate equivalent technical certification preferred.
At Yelp, we believe that diversity is an expression of all the unique characteristics that make us human: race, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, and education and those are just a few. We recognize that diverse backgrounds and perspectives strengthen our teams and our product. The foundation of our diversity efforts are closely tied to our core values, which include Playing Well With Others and Authenticity.
