Yext (NYSE: YEXT) is building the next big thing in AI search, and the next big thing is answers.
With the explosion of information and data online, search has never been more important. However, while the world of consumer search has innovated over time, enterprise search has not. In fact, the majority of enterprise search is powered by outdated keyword technology that only scans for keywords and delivers a list of hyperlinks rather than actually answering questions. Yext, the AI Search Company, offers a modern, AI-powered Answers Platform that understands natural language so that when people ask questions about a business online they get direct answers – not links.
We have a big, audacious mission to transform the enterprise with AI search. To achieve that, we need bright minds and diverse perspectives to join our growing company and help us continue to disrupt an industry. Does this sound like you?

An Insider's view of Yext

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Yext strikes the perfect balance between professional and collegial — and the office exemplifies just that! The endless snacks and cold brew fuel your creativity, while the open floor plan and comfy chairs inspire you to think big while feeling right at home. The people are genuine, the interactions are productive, and the energy is contagious.

What does your typical day look like?

In the morning, I’ll connect with our Product team to discuss our clients’ most pressing needs, and where these fit into our product roadmap. In the afternoon, I’ll meet with clients to provide a demo of our solutions, including live examples and a full platform walkthrough, and scope which of our integrations they require to get up and running.


Solutions Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Yext has been an incredible place to learn and grow over my 4 years with my team. I quickly became an expert in web UI design through working with tenured peers on various projects. My manager listened when I expressed interest in people management and even walked me through role-playing exercises to help my transition!


Manager, UI Design

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I try to lead with love & be vulnerable with my team. From my past experiences, I have come to believe that creating a space for everyone to be themselves is crucial to empowering them to feel like they can collaborate & create naturally. That’s when people do their best work.


Senior Manager, Client Support

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I think it's important that everyone on my team feels that they can come to me with problems & know that I'm going to follow up on them. I try to provide as many opportunities to reach me as possible — 1:1s, office hours, and an open forum during our monthly group all hands. Notes are always shared, with all my action items front and center.
