The ultimate source for official answers about a business online should be the business itself. However, when consumers ask questions on company websites, too often they are left in the dark with wrong answers. Yext (NYSE: YEXT), the Search Experience Cloud, solves this problem by organizing a business's facts so it can provide official answers to consumer questions — wherever people search. Starting with the company website, then extending across search engines and voice assistants, businesses around the world, like Taco Bell, Marriott, and Jaguar Land Rover—as well as organizations like the U.S. State Department—trust Yext to radically improve the search experience on their websites and across the entire search ecosystem.
At Yext, we believe that the ability to learn is not fixed, and that isn’t only ingrained in our business model, but also with our employees. That is why we built the Upward Rotation Program — a program crafted to accelerate employee development through exposure to multiple facets of the business. We are actively looking for professionals with 1+ years of experience post-graduation to join Yext and help trailblaze our fifth class starting in January 2021! 
Throughout this 18-month program, you will rotate every six months through participating teams such as Business Operations & Strategy, Product Strategy, Technology, Revenue, and Marketing. After completion of the program, you will walk away with a foundational understanding of the Yext platform, a resume chock-full of hands-on experience with some of the world’s largest brandsand be eligible for permanent placement.  
What You’ll Do 

  • Participate in three 6-month rotations to master our platform, product, and business processes.  
  • Learn to interpret client and internal partner requests and effectively communicate needs to various teams.  
  • Test new features and deliver meaningful product feedback.  
  • Manage and execute multiple projects simultaneously, including setting goals, developing timelines, and task completion.  
  • Cross-collaborate with teams to not only meet but exceed our client expectations. 

What You’ll Gain 

  • Each rotation is crafted to build business acumen through detailed onboarding, education, and experience — giving you the chance to leave a lasting footprint at Yext. 
  • Become a Yext Certified Admin through our Hitchhiker program during the first rotation, and then craft your personalized path. 
  • At the beginning of each rotation, you will be matched with a department manager and a sidekick to serve as mentors, provide constructive feedback, and offer continuous career support. 
  • Analysts that complete all rotations will be eligible for permanent placement.  

What You Have 

  • Bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, or similar college-level education with a graduation date after Summer 2019.

An Insider's view of Yext

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Yext has been an amazing place to work over the last 7 years. I've been surrounded by people who care about working hard and getting the job done right, while still keeping the human elements of kindness and collaboration a top priority for interacting with others. It often feels like I'm at work with my friends, and I've always loved that.

Chris

What does your typical day look like?

Not at all a cliche, but truly no day at Yext is the same. It's something truly special to be part of an ever-growing and innovative company where I have an active seat at the table in shaping where we take our products. With the Upward Rotational Program, I've felt supported and empowered every step of the way.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I have been with Yext for 8 years and held 5 roles, which has led to tremendous growth both professionally and personally. Being a part of such a flourishing start-up has allowed me to see what true entrepreneurship looks like. Yext has taught me the importance of staying one step ahead of the industry and enabled me to be more adaptable to change.

Melissa

Senior Recruiter

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I encourage my team to think outside the box. If it’s memorable, people are going to retain the info. If it’s fun, people are going to engage. Setting clear metrics for success on a project is what gives us the freedom to be creative. How we execute is all part of the fun! How we tweak and adjust is where we get to success.

Cindy

VP, Enablement

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Because of the flexibility Yext offers its employees, I was able to continue my athletic passion by playing in the Major League of Lacrosse while still holding my full-time position. Yext does a phenomenal job of ensuring their employees are excited to come work by providing them with an incredible work-life balance.
