Vaco SF Team

Operations Business Analyst

Stephanie Yatco

What brought you to Vaco? What drew your interest?
A friend referred me for an interesting position that was a cross between film and tech (I was a film major). I had a great experience with the recruiter and ultimately got the job! I’ve since been promoted a couple of times since that contract position and am now an internal employee at Vaco.

What’s the best thing about working at Vaco?
In my experience at Vaco, I’ve always felt heard and supported by my managers. I appreciate the follow through from my managers or the thoughtful responses if whatever we’re discussing isn’t possible. You can’t “win” all the time, but I’m thankful that what I bring up is always considered.

Describe your work style.
I’m very organized and methodical. I like to use the Google Tasks app to keep track of my tasks for the day. I can conveniently view it on my Google Calendar browser, which is also always open any way. I’ll move things around on the task list if more urgent tasks come up during the day. It always feels satisfying to check things off.

For my regular, weekly tasks, I like to schedule those in my calendar so that they’re never forgotten.
