Birmingham startup Wyndy expands to Tennessee

App connects families with babysitters

Wyndy, the Birmingham-based app that connects families with babysitters, has expanded its reach to Knoxville and Chattanooga in Tennessee.

The app allows customers to source, book and pay background-checked babysitters.

“Wyndy is excited to grow out of beta mode and expand into two new markets in Tennessee,” said Missy Polhemus, Wyndy CEO. “Since our launch in 2017, we have completed over 120,000 jobs across the Southeast, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to connect even more families and sitters.”

In addition to working with customers looking for sitters, Wyndy offers its sitters, college students, a flexible way to earn income while in school. “Thousands of college students in the Southeast have used Wyndy to connect with families,” Polhemus said. “We are looking to add 200 sitters in Chattanooga and Knoxville to support our expansion. On average, our sitters earn over $16 per hour and have complete flexibility to work as little or as much as they would like.”
