Upward: Yext's Rotational Program

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.
Program Overview
Throughout this 18-month program, analysts will rotate every six months through participating teams and collaborate on various projects. Each rotation is designed to flex different skills and will challenge participants to think outside of the box in order to achieve success. After completion of the program, analysts will not only walk away with a foundational understanding of the Yext platform and a resume chock-full of hands-on experience, but also a chance to interview for a full-time placement at Yext.

What qualities make a successful Upward applicant?

Upward is an experienced hire rotational program (1+ years of professional & non-internship experience post-graduation) for professionals who are looking to make an impact at a growing technology company. We are looking for solutions-oriented, self-starters who demonstrate strong leadership skills, as well as a proactive approach to problem-solving.

What kind of training is available?

Within your first month of the program, you will participate in a robust onboarding bootcamp alongside other members of your rotational class. This program will provide you with foundational knowledge surrounding Yext's products, processes, and people. In addition to onboarding, we'll provide extensive on-the-job training during each rotation. You will have access to all Yext resources, as well as "sidekicks" on each team to ensure you are exposed to all facets of the business.

What is a sidekick?

At the beginning of each rotation, analysts are matched with a member of their current team (i.e. sidekick) to serve as a mentor, provide constructive feedback, and offer continuous career support.

What happens at the end of the program?

Analysts who successfully complete the program and receive positive performance reviews in each rotation will be eligible to interview for permanent placement in a full-time role at Yext.
