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.


Software Engineering Lead

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.


Upward Analyst, Class 1

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.


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.


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.
