Perks and Programs

We asked Yodle to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Flexible Personal Time Off: Yodle believes that its employees have the judgment to know when they need to take a break, tend to personal matters, or spend time away from the office so that they can recharge and have fresh, focused minds. As such, the company offers a Flexible PTO program for exempt employees.
  • Free Food: Yodle offers a wide variety of free snacks across its offices. Yodle also provides free lunch everyday to all employees in its Austin office courtesy of Chef Parind Vora who is featured on Bravo's "Best New Restaurant" show.
  • Free International Trips: Yodle holds annual President’s Club overseas trips for high-level performers across multiple departments. Destinations have included Mexico and the Dominican Republic.
  • Development Opportunities: Yodle gives tuition assistance for almost any type of course that will help employees better themselves professionally. Yodle also provides $2,000 to employees to spend on their own professional development if they are selected as “Yodle Stars.” Additionally, there is a comprehensive leadership development training program that is available to current and aspiring managers and leaders.
  • Department/Office Giveaways and Outings: Each department celebrates wins in their own unique ways. Sales, for example, holds weekly or monthly contests with the opportunity to win prizes (including trips, tickets to games, etc). Yodle also hosts office- and department-wide team outings. They are a mixture of fun events and philanthropic activities.

    How to Get Hired

    We asked Yodle for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

    What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

    Although there is some variation depending on the role, the most important characteristics we are look for are perseverance, interpersonal courage, customer focus, ability to build effective teams, problem solving, a drive for results, listening, and an aptitude to learn on the fly. These characteristics are very closely aligned to our core values of Own Our Customers’ Success, Keep Your Word, Question Authority, Treat Others with Respect, Results Matter, and Commit Yourself to Greatness.

    What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

    It resonates with us when prospective employees demonstrate that they've taken the time to understand our business and industry. Beyond anything else what gets our attention is when people demonstrate that they are supremely talented at what they do, and are also good citizens who will fit into our culture and will be great team players.

     

    Are there any unusual or especially rigorous steps of your hiring process that candidates should be aware of?

    This varies by department. Examples include a puzzle-based assessment for joining our technology department, and demonstrating computer usage and vocal delivery abilities to become a member of our sales team. We sometimes also require prospective employees to give a presentation on a specific topic.   

     

    Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

    Filling roles across our sales and technology departments are a particularly big focus in the coming year. We will also continue to hire service, marketing, corporate and product professionals.

    What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

    Interested candidates can visit our careers site at www.yodlecareers.com to better understand what it's like to work at Yodle and to view current opportunities. Prospective employees can share their resume for a specific role on the site. They also have the opportunity to submit a general application on the job listings page if they don't find an position that interests them.
