Our offer packages come with a competitive salary and stock options. Our HR platform helps you access our fully covered medical, dental & vision plans along with 401k planning and commuter benefits.

Get to know our team!

We have bi-yearly company-wide hackathons

At YipitData, we're quick to admit that things can (almost) always be done better or more efficiently. So, twice a year, employees from every department take a step back from their work for a few days to put heads together and come up with innovative solutions that improve our every day work.

Our most recent winners, seen taking over the trophy above, developed an interactive discovery tool that allows our analysts to easily look at map trends.

Our next Hackathon is coming up this fall 2017. Will you be part of the next winning team? Check out our open jobs to the right!

Every Friday, we gather together in our All Hands area for a catered lunch and presentation.

We value Mastery here. Along with regular company updates and OKR reviews, we like to use these times for group learning opportunities. Some of our recent presentations included:

  • "What Really Happens When I Type Google.com in my Browser?" - presented by one of our Senior Engineers
  • Feedback training by LifeLabs

 

Featured Friday Lunch:

This March 2017, our CEO Vinicius Vacanti went through our Culture Presentation (v.3)! As we continue to scale and build a company we can all be proud of, we recognize the value in iterating on our cultural values and openly communicating that framework by which we strive to make both important and everyday decisions.

    YipitData Interview Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at YipitData (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Had a phone screen, they were very accommodating to work with busy schedules including mine, the first interview was pretty standard review of my work history - what were some strengths and weaknesses - what am I looking for in my next role. Then was an exercise with 1 week to complete, it was a significant amount of work but was able to complete and send it in before a week. I really appreciated the exercise, it gave me a clear example of what work would be expected of me and a sense for how the work was presented and culture behind it. Although it was difficult and a bit open-ended (not clear exactly what they will be grading on), I liked that I was able to show off my own work and see if it would be the right fit for both parties. Shortly after returning it, I was invited in for a final round of interviews which was meeting with a few different people individually. Tough but thorough and gave a chance to get to know the company well during the process.
