Teenjobfind safely and securely connects local teenagers seeking flexible jobs with community members who are looking for cost effective and on demand help to complete various tasks through a mobile based application. We are bringing back a sense of community that has long since been lost.
Teens can learn valuable work experience, responsibility and financial independence by taking on jobs like babysitting, petsitting, yard work, party helpers etc. Job posters can hire teens to help with their endless task list and get their jobs completed at a reasonable cost while contributing to a sense of community and teaching our local teens valuable life lessons.
Applicants are screened before acceptance to the platform and parents are actively involved throughout the process.
This app provides start to finish functionality. Registration occurs in app for both the teen and the job poster, they can easily post a job for a local teen to view and select, when the job begins, the app prompts the teen to start and finish the job, calculates the time and payment happens seamlessly.
TeenJobFind is available in Palo Alto, CA and Redwood City, CA with rollout to other communities soon!

Great app, except for a few things...
This app is great! I’ve been able to find jobs nearby that actually pay a lot more then I’ve found elsewhere, and I’ve met some great people doing it. It’s great how you can just open the app and see what’s available nearby and claim a job just like that! In theory, you can also chat with the poster and get paid automatically. Unfortunately, the chat is hard to use because it doesn’t send notifications when you get a message, so you have to check it. Instead I’ve just put my email in my bio. Also, most times I’ve finished a job, there’s been some sort of error (not always the app’s fault) that makes it so I don’t get paid automatically. But it’s really easy to contact support and get paid. Some other cons that don’t really affect the usability of the app but could be changed: Please add iPhone X support and I don’t like how every time you move the app it reloads. I’d prefer if it just took longer to load when you first opened it than how it is. But overall, I love TeenJobFind!

Thank you for your very constructive feedback. We're working hard to improve the user experience within the App and your comments are helpful. We did recently experience a technical glitch which required some intervention from our support team. The issue has been resolved. We're sorry for the inconvenience to you, but glad you found it easy to communicate with us and were paid quickly.
Great resource for parents
I’m a parent of twins and am in constant search of trustworthy, caring babysitters. When we moved back to my hometown, we didn’t know any teens, and once we did find them in our neighborhood, they were constantly booked doing after school activities.
I use TeenJobFind at least twice a month—sometimes as often as twice a week. I’ve never been disappointed with the sitters we use (about 6 now) and by communicating directly with the CEO, we’re often able to request one of our favorites.
We never have to worry about having enough cash on hand, because it’s all handled by the app. Plus, if we need to, we can easily communicate directly with our sitter through messaging. Everyone goes through a background check—so sitters’ parents are as confident and comfortable as we are.
A must have tool for busy parents—even if you have a regular sitter.

Lisa, we're thrilled to have you in our platform! Thank you for your feedback.
Great idea but app crashes constantly
This is a great idea. I used it to hire a young lady to help with a party. Neither her nor I knew what and how it was going to be charged and the commission the app would take when the job was over. Now the app keeps crashing every time I click on something on the map. There needs to be a better way to communicate with potential hires or see who is interested in the job. It is just a blank slate when one inputs the job and basically just wait and pray that someone will response by the time the date comes around.

Regarding the crash, please delete the app and re-download it from the app store this should resolve the issue.
