Prepare for an adventure. This is not a normal job. 
The Analyst works closely with the CEO and his Chief of Staff to organize, promote, and implement effective operations and initiatives within the office of the CEO and company-wide. This is a cross-functional role that involves relationship building with execs and other stakeholders in the company, careful attention to detail, supreme organizational skills, and the ability to manage multiple projects at once. The analyst is often the face of the office of the CEO, both internally and externally, and therefore must be responsive, poised, and discreet. We are looking for a gritty, driven, and deeply intelligent person who is curious and eager to learn. This is an intense role that will require flexibility and balance. The analyst must be independent motivated and self-sufficient, as there will often be very little direction in this role. We frequently expect the analyst to operate independently from the Chief of Staff and the CEO, particularly in sourcing, creating, and managing his/her own projects.

  • Taking the initiative to find areas of need and deciding how to resolve them and/or surface them to the correct people 
  • Managing and executing multiple projects simultaneously, including setting goals, developing timelines, and managing task completion 
  • Cross-collaborating with multiple teams to ensure projects and initiatives are executed at the highest level 
  • Liaising with execs, board members, and high profile external people, interpreting their needs and requests and communicating them clearly 
  • Booking travel and coordinating logistics 
  • Owning the calendar for the CEO / office 
  • Managing emails and submitting expenses  
  • Handling social media for the Office of the CEO 
  • Standing in for the Chief of Staff as needed 
  • Other tactical and strategic tasks assigned by the CEO or Chief of Staff

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.

Jeanne

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.
