Yepstr is a real life marketplace-game where ambitious teenagers can find simple jobs in their neighborhood (babysitting, dog-minding etc.). As our Yeps (Young Entrepreneurs) level up they can charge higher hourly rates and eventually start working for companies. We make sure the process is fun and safe. When we’ve succeeded, ambitious youths leave school with a CV full of job reviews and professional references.
Ever wanted to see how far you could go if you gave something everything you had? Ever felt like you were meant for something big? As Yepstr’s Head of Development you are at the helm of one of Sweden’s fastest growing startups and therefore your drive, the decisions you make and your ability to motivate others have a huge effect on our trajectory.
Simply put, it is your responsibility to take the product vision and translate it into reality - in the most effective way. This requires:
Running a startup into unexplored territory requires different skills and personalities compared to running a company that “already works”. We are therefore on the lookout for certain leadership qualities:
As with all early-stage startups part of your time will be spent coding. Initially it can be as much as 80%. Therefore it is expected that you are experienced in different web technologies and can choose the right tool, programming language or library required for the job. You know how to make a "correct" solution, but can also pull together a quick-n-dirty version when that's required.
What we offer:
Joining at this early stage means that you are offered a very attractive options program – in another dimension compared to other startups. Depending on your experience and the amount of options you choose, we offer a salary of between 30.000 to 35.000 sek.
You are, and will be treated as, an owner of Yepstr from Day 1. Complete freedom - work whenever and wherever you are the most productive. We honestly don’t care. As long as you take care of our company as well as we do.
Furthermore, we can guarantee that you will work with some of the smartest, most ambitious people in the startup sector in Sweden. We are all focused on the same goal – making Yepstr the best thing that’s come out of Sweden since flatpacked furniture and fish roe in a tube (Kaviar).
