We’re on a mission to help companies build an empowered workforce, where employees are happy and engaged in the work they do. At Yammer, we eat our own dog food. People love working here because they get to work on projects they’re passionate about with people they trust and truly enjoy spending time with. Here, everyone gets to have an impact on what the company and product will look like tomorrow.

Headquartered in San Francisco with offices in the UK, Australia and representation across the US, Yammer’s bringing together a diverse, world-class team to meet the demands of our rapidly growing, global user and customer base.


Working Culture

Having a culture of sharing and openness can have a big impact on the workplace. At Yammer, these are the values we live by. Every employee has a voice and the autonomy to make decisions, but we work together to drive toward common goals. What’s even better is we’re bringing these same values to millions of users at hundreds of thousands of companies around the globe through the product we’re building.


Social Life

At Yammer, the line between work and play is blurred. We have fun solving big problems and celebrate victory over drinks. We use our own product to organize recreational activities. Some of our favorite Yammer Groups include Wine Club, Yachting Club, Yogies, and “Off Topic But Rad,” where we share funny articles and discuss the latest Internet memes. At Yammer, you’ll be part of a tight-knit family: we root for local sports teams together, challenge other tech companies in soccer and sing our hearts out at karaoke. Come work—and play—with us.
