Co-founder for a new Start up
at Your Happy Period in London
Yoppie short for “Your Happy Period” is a newly launched tampon brand that discloses all of our ingredients. We only use 100 % organic cotton in our tampons – free from harmful toxins and pesticides. But that isn’t the only benefit. Our tampons empower women too! How? Every month you receive your Yoppie-combo you automatically donate a month’s supply of pads to a girl in need. We want girls to stay in school!
ABOUT THE FOUNDERS
Why we started Your Happy Period that eventually became Yoppie?
Your Happy period started with the goal to make everyone’s period a bit happier!
We thought that the market was missing a simple and healthy option for sanitary protection, that discloses all the ingredients. And at the same time draw attention to the major problems that exist in the world with over 100 million girls who lack appropriate sanitary protection. Making menstruation a cause for them to miss school or even drop out. This, in turn, means that their chance to develop in society decreases and can’t reach their full potential.
The founding partners Daniella and Nova, are two young individuals with a lot of experience within different areas but still at a young age. This is the first own company they are running. As a part of our growing team, we are looking for a highly driven co-founder with a proven track record. You have the chance to get really, really involved in the business and have the possibility to grow and make this role your own. You will be working closely with them both and the rest of the team. We are today six people working with Yoppie on a daily basis.
We are based in London and operate from London and Stockholm. So occasional travel will be offered if you are interested. We are currently preparing for our first Angel Round. So we are working from home, equinox, cafes and cool hotel lobbies
We are ideally looking for a person based in London to spend minimum 10-15 hours a week on Yoppie and working close with Daniella, the co-founder.
Maybe you are
- Hard-working and have a hands-on approach with a strong focus on getting s*it done? – Strong background and interest in the digital field, e-commerce, building platforms? – You like to communicate in a clear, concise and organised way? – the person that drives, coordinates and leads teams and projects? – a person that enjoys being analytical and with a data-driven mindset as well as a structured and organised working manner – a part of this venture for the years to come and have the potential to grow into its long-term leader? – the person that inspire others people and your team?
Most important, you are willing to learn and try to make Yoppie even better. Someone that truly want to change the feminine care industry, and not afraid of doing so. Not to forget a like-minded individual (read very entrepreneurial) that would love to join this early stage company.
There are no salaries paid at this stage, but listen up. We want to offer the right person, a good equity share, co-founding role in the company and also a long term role. We all want salaries and this will be negotiable after initial seed round.
If you think this sounds interesting and you are interested, please feel free to send your CV and write a few lines. We will then arrange a video call or a meetup – to get to know each other.
Have a lovely day!
Daniella and The Yoppie Team
