Product Manager

Salary Competitive
Equity To be negotiated

There are nearly 1.2 billion young people (aged 15-24) in the world. 1 billion of them want an extra job. Until now, no other company has made this problem their own. Our app, Yepstr is now Sweden's largest platform for simple and safe teenage-jobs like babysitting, tutoring and dog-minding.

We now need your help as our future Product Manager to put the last pieces into place before we shift focus from Sweden to the World.

You will join Yepstr at a super exciting growth-phase, "early enough" to really make your mark and "late enough" that there is at least a foundation in place . Through your work you will help young people to get their first job and at the same time make the everyday life better for families.

As our Product Manager you will be the leader of our product team. Your main responsibility will be to guide the team right, by ensuring we have a clear product vision and using your understanding of our business to ensure we prioritize research and design efforts in the areas that are most likely to generate results.

To accomplish this we expect that you will push the team to continuously bathe ourselves in user input. It really boils down to three things: obsess about understanding our users, our business drivers and combining that with an assessment of what is actually possible to build.


Responsibilities

  • Lead the Product team

  • Prioritizing the product roadmap based on data and learnings together with the team

  • Evaluating the impact of implemented features and sharing learnings with the team

  • Define and improve our processes and way of working

  • Work together with CEO on the strategy and vision

We are looking for someone who ...

  • Cares for data and evaluating outcomes

  • Has previous experience from a similar role (Product Manager in mobile app development)

  • Has experience in managing a team

  • Is self-driven and enjoys (or thinks they would enjoy!) a fast-paced environment

  • Has a background in data analysis

  • Has a basic understanding of programming and can discuss with programmers

  • Likes people and likes having fun along the way!

Big plus if you have any of these...

  • Previous startup experience

  • Mobile games experience

  • Previously worked for a company in any of these fields: staffing, recruiting, household services, babysitting, tutoring, dog-minding, or services for families

  • Experience in ProductBoard, Mixpanel

 

About Yepstr

We have five core values that drives our work at Yepstr. Passion for the Mission, Know your neighbor, Pippi and Get-shit-done-artist. We look forward to explaining more in detail when we meet :)

Yepstr is currently 9 full-time employees which means we are a small company. Working for a small company is very different to working for a large company. Some love it - some hate it! Some things we often hear are that here at Yepstr everyone truly shows ownership for their respective fields of work. We also often hear that we're pretty unique in that we don't just talk about doing something good for young people. We actually walk the walk. Finally, people say we stand out in our work in achieving a truly flat organization where everybody can contribute and make their voice heard steering the ship for our common goal – to give all youth a fun, easy, safe and motivating way in to the labour market.

 

Our offer

If you join us this early in our journey and commit to invest your time, passion and energy to make us succeed then you will not only receive a salary from us, but you will also become a shareholder through options.
