We've built a community-building platform that our customers can install on their own website with one-line of JS code. This creates a real-time / async chat that allows website visitors to become community members, right on the customer's homepage.

It's kind of like having a Slack (or Discord Chat) right on your own website.

The biz model is B2B SaaS.

For those who are fans of Jobs to be Done, here's a little verbiage for you: Creators hire YEN to help them launch, grow, and monetize their community.

Creators is anyone who is using their audience and community to build revenue (e.g. bloggers, vloggers, influencers, newsletter publishers, podcasters, and technology-enabled SMBs).

Engineering at YEN

Engineering team and processes

You can read more about our process here: https://github.com/yenio/handbook/blob/master/6-prod-dev.md

Technical Challenges

Less technical and more our operating culture which is async and distributed. You really have to love this type of workflow and cadence to succeed here. We create agency and autonomy through alignment.

We don't have a designer so that's a problem that we need to fix.

Projects you might work on

Working at YEN

We are serious about our work but we don't take ourselves too seriously. We like to share our work (and lives) with our customers and community.

We might just be the most transparent / candid team and culture you've ever experienced... it is a wildly-different feel!

Our CEO blogs daily (http://john.do) about life, family, startups, and everything in-between and communicates to thousands of our community members through a variety of (social) channels on the internet. This is a unique competitive advantage that we have.
