Yext, an international digital knowledge management technology company, plans to expand its New York City headquarters.
The company plans to invest tens of millions of dollars into its new 142,500-sq.-ft. headquarters at 61 Ninth Ave. in Manhattan. The investment will create 500 new high-paying jobs over the next five years.
Founded in 2006 in New York City, Yext is a software as a service cloud technology company that gives companies control over their brand experiences across the digital universe of maps, apps, search engines, voice assistants and other intelligent services that drive consumer discovery, decision and action.
“Yext is excited to unveil The Yext Building, and our plans to expand Yext with 500 new jobs in our hometown of New York,” Yext founder and CEO Howard Lerman said.
“In an era of information overload, with so much of it wrong, The Yext Building will stand proudly as we bring brand verified answers to the world. We founded Yext as three guys in a single room in Columbus Circle. More than a decade later, our innovative products, world-class team, and massive opportunities are being felt around the world. It’s still Day One at Yext. Each day we wake up to put the truth out into the world,” Lerman added.
