About Yapster:

Yapster’s mission is to empower people working in roles traditionally underserved by productivity-boosting enterprise software. We’re already working with some of the best names around - think Ann Summers, Caffè Nero, Krispy Kreme, and Next - to do just that. 

After closing a significant round of private investment at the end of last year, we’re gearing up for rapid growth through 2019 and beyond. With your help, our mobile messaging platform will be used and loved by millions of frontline workers across the world in the coming years.

Based in the heart of Soho, we’re a friendly, fun team united by a passion for building a first class product and company culture. You can expect to work alongside brilliant people and join a fast-paced culture where everyone relishes getting ‘stuck in’.

Main responsibilities

  • Day-to-day liaison with existing and prospective partner organisations

  • Meeting with partners and demoing Yapster

  • Identifying and exploring opportunities for new commercial partnerships that help extend the reach and utility of the Yapster platform

  • Working closely with our Head of Projects and our engineering team to understand the feasibility of proposed technology integrations and produce mock ups

  • Supporting our account management team with customer requests for integrations

  • Working with the marketing team to document new partnerships and promote them in our target markets

  • Being an external ambassador for Yapster at events

Qualities we’re looking for:

  • This is not a technical role but you must love, and be confident using, technology

  • Confident, friendly and engaging - you must consider yourself to be a ‘people person’

  • You must be a structured and organised thinker

  • Ability to work independently and show initiative

  • Adaptable and resilient

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills

  • Experience in a retail or hospitality environment is always a bonus

  • Aptitude is more important to us than academic qualifications

How to apply...

Full managed

 

We take care of the entire process for you so we can manage and remove poor experiences like ghosting, no feedback, no updates and so on.

 

All you have to do is let your Relationship Manager know you’re interested, ask them any questions you have and they will take care of the rest.

Straight to the front

From there, what’s next is super simple 

 

If you like the initial sound of the company/ role. We then act as your “in” with them and set up an initial phone chat with you and the Hiring Manager there. 

 

The chat will be pretty informal and should only last 10-15 minutes - It's a fact find for both of you. 

 

More than prepared 

 

Before the call we will send you EVERYTHING you'll need to know about the company / who they are looking for / format of the call and so on. 

 

You will be fully prepared and know what to expect at every stage.
