Yoti - Senior Front-end Developer

Someone who understands that “what you build” is just as important as “how you build it”. Someone who wants to do more than just code. We want dreamers, creators, someone who likes to discuss ideas and push the boundaries of technology.

Who we are

Yoti is a global company whose aim is to be the world’s trusted identity system. We have seriously ambitious goals to become the world's most secure and data sensitive company. Our passionate team works to improve the way people share their personal information. Innovative products like the Yoti mobile app help people to prove who they are online and in person.

We are creating a new concept. Something that has never been done before, Why not be part of something truly innovative and creative. Yoti is here to fight against fraud and build a secure identity system for individuals and businesses. We are a company who are pushing the boundaries of technology for a safer world.
