Jyve is the leading platform for in-store flexible and skilled labor. Jyve offers brands, retailers and grocers fast access to skilled individuals (Jyvers), who are certified to handle tasks ranging from merchandising to auditing to e-commerce order fulfillment. Founded in 2015 by Bradford Oberwager, Cammy Bergren, James Kairos and Sam Purtill, Jyve operates across America with the aim of offering grocers and retailers a better way to service customers.
As pioneers of the Skill Economy -- individuals who work in multiple roles and capacities based on their evolving skill set -- Jyve implements machine learning to match enterprise businesses needs with the right skilled labor, at the right time, guaranteeing in-store execution regardless of employee headcount. Jyvers benefit because they can choose their own hours and get paid by the job, which means that those Jyvers who are more skilled and faster get paid more, as they are able to complete a greater number of jobs.
Jyve’s skilled labor force and familiarity with in-store product seamlessly translates to efficient online order fulfillment, resulting in rapid development of Jyve’s digital shopping offering. Digital shopping with Jyve enables retailers to own their customer relationship, from shopper insights to brand positioning, as well as eliminate e-commerce caps.
Jyve is rapidly expanding, operating in 2,500+ stores across 32 states, with plans to offer brand ambassadorship and certification for Jyvers in customer-facing roles. The company is committed to growing the Skill Economy, matching skills to grocers’ needs, and providing a wide variety of opportunities for retailers.
