11 Jul, 2016

YouTeam is a lean digital product development agency that leverages a vetted talent pool of 30+ specialised design and development houses across continental Europe and is headquartered in London. Company’s unique HR platform enables tailored highest quality team assembly for any project within just 24 hours.

Founded in 2014, YouTeam first operated as a consulting company that provided “turnkey” digital product development services for small private customers in the UK. After the first year of YouTeam’s existence, more and more “professional founders” approached it as clients. This has inspired the development of a proprietary HR platform (“Talent Pool”). New type of clients, serial entrepreneurs, often with their own tech background, appreciate YouTeam’s ability to form a team of highly skilled professionals without the need for traditional long-term recruitment. This speed was achieved through use of the “dynamic pool of human resources” info, which is tracked by every development company and through automation of individual process units.

Today, funded startups and the enterprise sector of the UK, USA, France, Germany, Nigeria and Australia make the most of YouTeam clients. Together with partners, digital products for a range of verticals have been developed including, but not limited to: Fintech, Healthcare, eCommerce, Data Science, IoT and HoReCa.

Since its origin YouTeam has been closely associated with Lviv. One of the three founders, Yuri Riphyak, is a native-born Lviv citizen. Companies from Lviv, including the IT Cluster members, form the base of YouTeam partner network. In early 2016, Lviv office opening took place.

“I admire all the work Lviv IT Cluster has accomplished over the past 5 years. We at YouTeam fully share the philosophy of cooperation and shared growth and we’re happy to contribute our experience and effort to the great cause of the development of Ukraine’s IT Industry. We hope that membership in the cluster will help us to strengthen ties with existing partners and establish relations with more strong engineering and design companies”, — Yura Riphyak, Co-founder and Managing Partner of YouTeam.
