À propos

Why work at Yoopies?

We were founded in 2012 and recently raised 4M€ to build a more robust and senior organization. We acquired findababysitter in the UK and want to continue our expansion across Europe. We are now established in 15 countries, helping people and companies to find well-being services. We also help professionals to find a job and provide a great experience to our consumers. Recently we also acquired HelperChoice based in HongKong and operating in Singapore and Saudi Arabia too.

As there’s much to come like: launching new countries, extending our services to provide a 360 experience, launching a new B2B digital offer to revolutionize traditional-boring Employe Assistance Program, offering new care services; we continue to invest a lot in Technology.

Our Tech Team is about 30 people freshly arrived during the last 12 months and we now plan to stabilize this Core Team. We have multi-disciplinary jobs in our great Technology team: Data, Design, Product, Developers, QA and Dev-Ops giving us the capacity and authority to quickly experiment our ideas. We are Customer Centric and our Customer Success Team is also based in our HQ in Paris (next to Tech). This is helping us in providing a top-notch customer experience on a daily basis. We know what feedback-loop is :)

Globally we are an open-minded team of 70 with strong values, all following the same direction. We work hard to make everyone feel comfortable, sharing ideas and trying out new things. We care about our Users and we care about our People.
