About YSI
YSI Global is digitalizing its innovation program to make it accessible for our whole global community! We do this by building a platform with a dynamic learning program, as well as a community to help entrepreneurs across the world to get high quality follow up and help in their journeys to solve sustainability challenges in the world, locally as well as globally.

Today, aspiring entrepreneurs can choose between programs with a high barrier where few people or startups get in. They can pay expensive schools or courses that are too expensive for most people, or as a last option they can get free, but often static and irrelevant help on online courses and content.

YSI wants to bring dynamic and changing content based on the people and startups situations and needs. This is done through the use of content that can change based on new information, an AI chatbot, a community we call Earthpreneurs, and more.

YSI has reached millions of people each year, and got over 35.000 applications for the programs that have been running the past 3 years. The need and wish to get help on their entrepreneurial journeys is massive, which is why we have decided to create a more scalable program that can help as many brilliant minds as possible. Our least of problems is reaching out to millions of people in our target group, which is why we are now looking for developers to help build the amazing product that can enable this.

Timeline for developing
1
Phase 1: MVP of platform
The first stage is building a working MVP that can help us test what parts of the product people get real value from. The initial timeline is from February 2020 until June 2020.


2
Phase 2: Integrated platform
The second stage is about integrating the different parts of what we are building (the community, the content, chatbot, innovation library, and more). This is set to be worked on from June-October 2020.


3
Phase 3: Optimize
The third stage is starting to optimize the platform by making the data and different parts of the platform communicate well to each other.
This is set to be worked on
from October and onwards.


The least of our problem is reaching out to millions of people in our target group. We want people who wants to build a great product!

Our values
Togetherness
We are together in this. Strive to help other members of the community to the best of your ability. No blame game and leave no one behind.
Curiosity
Curiosity means going beyond respect and acceptance for things being the way they are. It's about being curious to go towards a deeper understanding of the underlying structures and reasons for why things are the way they are, and also looking towards how they could be.
Continously improving
The only way to achieve greatness is by continuously improving upon what we have done. Therefore we start from a place where we have practiced what we preach and focus on challenging the status quo.
Prioritizing
Time and energy is a limited resource. Multitasking makes people stupid so we strive to do what's important first.
Our benefits
Work with a great team
Respectable salary and meaningful equity
Flexible work & remote work opportunities
Build something great for people around the globe
