Upward, the Yext Rotational Program, offers a unique opportunity to join one of the fastest-growing technology companies in New York City.
Our mission is to develop future leaders by empowering, mentoring, and enabling participants to innovate and learn across a variety of teams, products, and focus areas.
What is the Scope of the Program?
At Yext, we believe that it’s crucial to have a firm understanding not only of how our platform and systems work, but also how our clients interact with our products.
