About us:

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, Caffe 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 in 2019. 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 in which everyone relishes getting ‘stuck in’.

  • Day-to-day project management of our events and marketing programmes

  • Supporting the team in posting to and managing Yapster’s social media channels

  • Work with Yapster’s webmaster to ensure the website is fully optimised and up to date

  • Help to maintain and grow our prospect lists

Experience

We are looking for the following attributes:

  • Excellent writing ability

  • A keen eye for detail

  • A positive, ‘can do’ attitude

  • Strong organisational skills and ability to prioritise tasks

  • You consider yourself a ‘people person’ and feel comfortable communicating with lots of different personality types

  • An independent, creative and curious thinker

  • Social media literate - you don’t have to be a ‘guru’ or ‘ninja’, basic knowledge of the main platforms is fine

  • A love for, and experience of, the retail and hospitality industries would be a bonus

  • Ideally educated to degree level, but we care more about your experience and mindset than if or where you went to University
