DescriptionYapp is looking for a savvy and passionate intern to help nurture and grow our community of Yappers.
Yapp is democratizing mobile technology so that every person on the planet can create his or her own mobile app. Yes, that’s a big vision – and we are just at the beginning. We launched our first product last November and have received a phenomenal reception from users, our top tier investors, and the media. Yapp was reviewed in the WSJ (“beautiful,” “intuitive,” and “exciting”), featured on USA Today's Talking Tech, and appeared on Good Morning America (“genius”).
