Yelp

Describe Your Project feature

  • Python
  • React
  • Redux
  • SQL
  • jQuery

For my intern project at Yelp, I helped create a new feature on the desktop website to make it easier for users to request quotes from home services businesses. Rather than search for a business and write a message to them from scratch, “Describe Your Project” lets users answer multiple-choice questions before they are presented with businesses to send their request to.

I wrote many of the React components in the page and the Redux reducers used to store dynamic data. To share code across some of Yelp’s microservices, I wrote a Python package to encapsulate the shared logic.
