Say hello to Brittany B, one of the Community Managers for @YelpHouston! Brittany recently celebrated her first Yelpiversary and has been reflecting on all of the exciting moments she’s had over the last year at Yelp. She loves that her role as a Community manager celebrates her creativity and individuality. One of our core values is to be unboring, and Brittany loves bringing her curiosity and authenticity to work every day.
What does a typical day look like in your role?
As a Community Manager, I wear many hats. While each day looks different, you may find me focusing on business owner connection and education; identifying candidates for the Yelp Elite Squad; scouting for a candidate for our community internship; highlighting local businesses in the media, or constructing events to celebrate the best businesses in our community.
How does Yelp support your work-life balance?
In addition to our fabulous benefits package, we’re encouraged to take time off to recharge, refresh, and spend time with family.
How does your manager remind you that your work is valued?
My manager makes me feel seen and heard. When I doubt myself, she reminds me of my power. She is my biggest cheerleader.
What motivates you every day?
I’m motivated by the purposefulness of my work. I love watching a business grow, knowing I pushed the wheel that gave it the momentum it needed to thrive. I love watching shy Elites connect with other like-minded explorers at events, realizing the value of the community we create. I love watching Elites connect with the story of a business owner. I love seeing the difference I make in people’s day.
