Yepstr's vision is to help young people take the step into the labor market. With our app it is possible for young people to find their first job in the neighborhood, like babysitting or gardening, and begin building their CV. When they have proven themselves they unlock jobs for companies. Yepstr has succeeded when all high-school students graduate with a CV filled with references and multiple job-interviews waiting!
Yepstr is looking for a business-focused and analytical Head of Product that wants to help us understand our users and their needs - ensuring that we prioritize the areas in our product that have the highest impact. You will join Yepstr at a super exciting growth-phase, early enough to really make your mark. 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 Head of Product you will be on the front line, analyzing input from how our users actually interact with our app, inviting them to user tests and sending out surveys to understand why they get stuck at certain points in the user flow. We have a very engaged user community, both among the young people looking for work and among the customers. This means that we perform user tests every week and that we have a lot of users that are willing to take part in surveys or give feedback. It is an agile workplace where this user feedback can be implemented as a design change within weeks.
As Yepstr’s Head of Product you will have ownership for the overall user flows. We envision you becoming something of a Master of Simplicity - removing things we don't need, pushing for simple solutions. You will also be responsible for the roadmap ahead and work closely with our CEO, Head of Growth and designer to ensure that the priotizations are right. This means digging in our analytical tools to get an understanding of our user’s behaviours.
We envision you being someone who likes to be in control as well as being excited about taking initiatives. You will be surrounded by a great, ambitious and curious team that loves to listen, discuss ideas and help out in any way they can. At Yepstr collaboration is crucial. You’ll share your learnings and victories on team meetings and in smaller focus groups. This is a workplace where you have the chance to grow as a team mate and as a Head of Product.
