Software Engineering Lead

Company: Yext
Location: New York
Posted on: February 25, 2021

Job Description:

The ultimate source for official answers about a business online should be the business itself. However, when consumers ask questions on company websites, too often they are left in the dark with wrong answers. Yext (NYSE: YEXT), the Search Experience Cloud, solves this problem by organizing a business's facts so it can provide official answers to consumer questions - wherever people search. Starting with the company website, then extending across search engines and voice assistants, businesses around the world, like Taco Bell, Marriott, and Jaguar Land Rover-as well as organizations like the U.S. State Department-trust Yext to radically improve the search experience on their websites and across the entire search ecosystem.

Yext is looking for a Software Engineering Lead to help us continue building out our product and services. Our team works in an agile environment running two-week sprints that culminate with demos of features in progress. You will work alongside engineers from the top universities and tech companies in the world, using the best equipment in a fun and social environment where you will be hands-on with the code from day one.

Successful candidates will be seasoned software engineers with experience leading teams, decomposing functional specifications into work items, and writing technical design documents. Candidates must be well-organized, deadline-oriented, amicable but tough, and capable of earning team's respect.
