Yext 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.
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.

“Upward creates an environment that encourages you to explore your ideas, play to your strengths, and pursue learning with genuine curiosity. The result is more than a job — it's a community that feels impactful, personal, and truly fulfilling!”
“Having no experience working in tech before Yext, this was the perfect gate-way for me to jump in and figure out where I could make an impact based on my personal interests, skills, and experience.”
“The best part of Yext is that the grass is actually greener on the other side — it's hard to find a place where you enjoy the people and the work. People at Yext are passionate, driven, and push to make you a better professional and person.”
“Having limited exposure to the Tech industry prior to joining Yext, the Upward program opened my eyes to a world of opportunity. As part of Upward, you’ll be encouraged to pursue your interests and broaden your network as you determine where you can make the biggest impact. ”
