    YextTalks: Arvin Ahmadi, Author, Down and Across - Yext

    Yext Last week, we had the pleasure of hosting Arvin Ahmadi, former Yexter and author of Down and Across for a YextTalks. Ahmadi joined us for a fireside chat with GeoMarketing's Lauryn Chamberlain, where they discussed life after Yext, the journey from making writing a hobby to a full-time career, and Scott, the main character from Down and Across who, over time, began to reflect Ahmadi himself.

  • We welcomed three-time Olympic gold medalist, Kerri Walsh Jennings, as the keynote speaker at our sales kickoff meeting today where she spoke about accountability and how to truly own it!

    I have been working at Yext full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free lunch, free dinner, game room, nap room, all of the free snacks you could imagine, free drinks, pizza & beer on Fridays, weekly manifestos hosted by the CEO... all of that is great, but I genuinely enjoy working with the people at Yext... we all work together toward a common goal & have fun doing it. I've never worked at a company that hires so many nice people (not to mention some of the most intelligent). I can say that after 3 years at the company, this still proves to be a true statement everyday.

    Cons

    Getting everyone to follow processes is difficult sometimes... but doesn't every company have that issue?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Yext (New York, NY) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online through the company website and was contacted about a week later. First round was a general phone screen. Second round was a video conference with a role play. Third round was on-site involving role plays and a logic/ problem solving test. The whole process took about a month.
