About Yepstr πŸš€

Yepstr is Sweden's largest platform for simple and safe teenage-jobs like babysitting, tutoring and dog-minding. Our vision is to help 100 million young people to their first jobs by 2030, and in doing that we will help lower youth unemployment and help bridge the gap to adulthood.

We are currently 15 full-time employees, but with all of our Young Entrepreneurs that work via Yepstr every day then we are in fact thousands. We view them all as our colleagues.

What sets us apart? Something we often hear is that at Yepstr we really believe in our team. So you won't find any micro-management here. Second, we also often hear that we're pretty unique in that we don't just talk about doing something good - we actually do. We built Yepstr to help young people take the step into adulthood and that's something we will never let go of.
