YouTeam Becomes a New Member of Lviv IT Cluster

14 Jul, 2022

YouTeam is a marketplace for hiring remote developers with on-demand staff augmentation. It enables tech companies to ramp up their development by instantly adding full-time contracted engineers to the team.

Leveraging a network of 25,000 vetted engineers in Europe and Latin America, YouTeam helps customers access qualified talent ready to start working on a project within a week.

YouTeam is a remote-first company with headquarters in Mountain View, California, and an office hub in Lviv. The company was founded in 2017 and has 35 employees as of 2022.

In 2018, YouTeam was backed by Y Combinator and joined its acceleration program.

Volunteering is an integral part of YouTeam’s business since the company treats all employee volunteer work as equal to their core job activities and reimburses them 100%. Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began, YouTeam has donated 3,000,000 UAH to support Ukrainian troops, refugees, and civilians. It continues to donate 50% of its net monthly profits to help the country.

YouTeam is an international remote-first technology company: our employees are currently working from ten different countries, and we have developers from thirty more listed on our marketplace. But our heart will always be in Lviv, where we were born and where a big part of our team is based.

However, what really convinced me that it was time to join were the causes that Cluster was working towards in these darkest of times. In the first days of the war, YouTeam made a pledge to donate half of our profits to help Ukraine. It is most invigorating to see similar initiatives at many other Ukrainian tech companies. These are the times when the power of unity is more obvious than ever beforeand we are proud to become part of the community of outstanding companies making such a tremendous difference”, Yurij Riphyak, YouTeam Co-founder and CEO.

“Welcome to the YouTeam in the Cluster. It is precious that the IT community is united in such difficult times because together, we can achieve much more. I am sure that the YouTeam company will find among a number of our projects and initiatives those in which it will show itself to the maximum”, Stepan Veselovskyi, CEO, Lviv IT Cluster.
