An Insider's view of Yieldmo

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

As a working mom with a long commute, it's imperative to work at a company that supports flexible working arrangements. After discussing the need with my manager, he expressed full support and confidence in my ability to produce stellar results even from home! Yieldmo delivers on its promise to put people first and trusts results the will follow.

Account Director

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Processing and analyzing billions of data points each month requires us to have our finger on the pulse of multiple teams within Yieldmo. We collaborate in real-time via Slack and our office setup makes it easy to swing by someone's desk. We also have recurring cross-functional stands ups as well bi-weekly All Hands company meetings.

What makes someone successful on your team?

Success on my team belongs to the curious self-starter. The landscape is constantly changing and creative problem solving is a key skill when you rarely encounter the same issue twice. You have to love digging into the "why" and "how" of everything. Success on this team rises and falls on continuous learning and collaboration.

Dan Contento

SVP Growth & Automated Partnership

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

I'm a huge believer in trying out new ideas and encouraging my team to stretch themselves. We have an award for when something goes wrong with an untested idea. It celebrates that we didn't let the fear of the unknown stop us from trying and 9 times out of 10 we learn something really important. We help solidify Yieldmo's true north.

Timothy Price

SVP, Sales and Accountability

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe is like California meets New York! Dogs running around the office, all the food and snacks you could ask for, comfy chairs to sit on if you're not into the traditional desk seating... Yieldmo fosters a comfortable and collaborative environment in which it's easy to make new friends while also getting some work done!
