An Insider's view of YieldStreet

What are some social events your company does?

My favorite part of YieldStreet is our camaraderie. It’s refreshing to be part of a team that likes spending time together vs bolting for the door as soon as the clock strikes 5. We do group workouts, host guest speakers, do team outings, and go for dinners at popular spots like Vandal, Lavo and Nobu.

Meg

Chief of Staff

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We collaborate across functional differences (your normal departmental divisions) and geographic distances. We not only share documentation about features and strategy, but also about the best spots to grab a bite, a drink, or to catch a show! YieldStreet folks look out for each other, so our teams in Brazil, Argentina, Malta have followed suit.

Charlie

Product Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My career has grown tremendously in the year and a half at YieldStreet. I started as the only Product Manager on the team, and as we've scaled, I have had the opportunity to grow the product team to six people. I was recently promoted to Director and now have a wide-ranging set of responsibilities and the capability to impact company strategy.

Glenna

Director of Product Management

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Technology is the great enabler for YieldStreet's core mission to democratize access to alternative investment products for all investors. This resonates very strongly with the product/tech group, both as the team that builds the software to make this mission a reality, and as current and potential users of the very software we build.

Hrishi

CTO

How does your team reward individual success?

I knew code wasn’t the only place I could contribute. Within a year I was involved on projects across 4 teams, was promoted to senior engineer, and now lead the mobile dev team. Last quarter I received our coveted Impala award, exemplifying that quarter’s mission: focus and blitz. My worst day at YS has been better than my best at any other job.

David

Senior Software Engineer
