Additional Information

At Yello, we work hard and we play just as hard. We are the trailblazers in our space and we take this seriously, but there is always time to celebrate a colleague's birthday or a recent success. We dress casually, have one of the best views in the city and the whole team sports MacBooks. We make work-life balance a priority through flexible work arrangements, office sports leagues, holiday parties and discounted gym memberships. And with a fully stocked kitchen, professional development programs, Blue Cross Blue Shield healthcare and a 401K match – we’ve got you covered. Our CEO Jason Weingarten and President Dan Bartfield always have their office doors open. You might even see one of them at the local karaoke bar, but not to worry, as they’ve been told not to quit their day jobs.
