Working at Tandem

Hiring in: Columbus

Tandem is the only free marketplace for care services that is revolutionizing the way that providers get paid. We connect families with reliably-vetted care providers, and provide quality jobs to users; we want to create long-lasting relationships on the basis of trust. We know that finding care and jobs alike can be stressful, time-consuming, and expensive, so we strive to relieve that pressure for users.

Founder Olivia Weinstock was a well-connected sitter/nanny and experienced clear gaps in the industry. Families and providers wanted a free, reliable way to find each other so they reached out to Olivia to facilitate these connections. She thought that there had to be a way to automate this process to reach more people, while keeping it 100% free and maintaining reliability.

By incorporating a fin-tech model, Tandem is able to stay fee-free for families and providers, and also add a financial literacy aspect for providers. We enable providers to receive money safely after completing jobs, and then manage their earnings comprehensively on the platform. 

We know that if this model works in child care, it will work anywhere. We plan to expand into other hourly paid markets, and build on the banking platform so earners have an opportunity to learn more about money management, and do more with their earnings without ever leaving the app. Our long-term goal is to be the bank for gig economy workers.
