 Yext, the Digital Knowledge Management (DKM) company, has revealed its new London headquarters and revealed they plan to hire more than two hundred new employees over the next five years.

The new 15,600 square foot office is three times the size of the company's current Golden Square site, reflecting the company's rapid growth and the expansion of the team.

Prominently located near Oxford Circus, in the heart of Noho, the new office will be in the center of a fashionable London neighborhood. The location is also home to many of the world's leading internet, fashion, media, and marketing companies including the BBC and Facebook.

"Off the back of opening a new and larger office in Washington D.C., and doubling our workforce in France, our new London office is yet another stride in Yext's global expansion," said Wendi Sturgis, CEO of Yext Europe. "We are expanding our presence in London to meet growing demand for our technology as businesses recognize the need for a platform to provide perfect answers to their customers."

In addition to providing a larger and more innovative workspace for the Yext team, Yext plans to use the new branded space to entertain clients, and to host marketing and technology industry events.

"We're seeing strong momentum in the U.K. as some of the biggest brands in the world partner with us to provide perfect answers to their customers everywhere," said Jon Buss, Managing Director for UK and Northern Europe. "Yext continues to invest in this market to support our rapid growth."

Yext will occupy the top (7th) floor of UK House, a landmark building sitting on an island site. The building itself offers a renovated lobby, common lounge, outdoor terraces, and modern amenities for employees.
