COME CHANGE THE WAY THE WORLD WORKS
We think that success requires an open, happy, and authentic company culture fueled by transparency. That's why we build a product that helps other companies become more transparent, from senior management down to the newest employee.
The best ideas, friendships, and products don't come from echo chambers. We openly encourage and foster diversity in the way we live, think, and work because we've found it makes our company, our product, and ourselves better.
Behind everything we do is the tireless, relentless desire to get things done. We've kept our hustle as we've gotten bigger, and we've built our company around being able to improve our product and iterate quickly.
WE MAKE OTHER PEOPLE'S JOBS BETTER BY HAVING FUN AT OURS
At Yammer we make people's jobs better — for a living. Not just the people who work here, but people on practically every continent and in pretty much every industry. We believe in company-wide transparency and we've tested it, both here at Yammer and with our customers.
We have a culture of dissent: anyone at any time can say what they feel. There are no third rails or sacred cows or pet projects here, just people trying to build the best product we can. We hire people who care about quality and then empower them to get things done. We're constantly looking to improve ourselves and our company: as our problems get bigger, we get better.
We're a startup on the street but an industry leader on the books. We share ownership in what we build, from beginning to end, and every feature we ship is another feature we can use to help us do our jobs.
THE ANTI-SOAP BOX
We're real people, not code-crunching robots. We have strong opinions frequently, we defend them passionately and we change them willingly because that's what makes us different. We are conscious, we are candid and we are generally unassuming. Here's a taste of what we think about:
The Yammer architecture has evolved from a monolithic Rails application to a micro-service based architecture. Our services share many commonalities,... Read More

ENOUGH ABOUT US WHAT ABOUT YOU?
We know you're smart and we want to hear what you have to say. We would love to hear your opinions on the benefits of Rails, products you’ve always wanted to build, or your favorite kind of coffee and why (expect to defend your position with the highest degree of seriousness).
